Wizard of Oz Land is Opening at Movie World in 2024
Australia can finally claim that yes, the Yellow Brick Road does indeed end in Oz! Come April 2024, all theme park goers and Wizard of Oz fans can follow the Yellow Brick Road to the Emerald City, aka Warner Bros. Movie World's insane new Wizard of Oz Land.
Movie World operator, Village Roadshow have described the new themed precinct as a "multi-million-dollar immersive precinct".
According to Village Roadshow chief executive Clark Kirby, "This precinct is going to be like nothing we have ever done at Movie World and we are working closely with our partners at Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment to make this one of the most beautifully themed precincts in Australian theme parks."
The former Batman: Arkham Asylum precinct will be taken over by the new Wizard of Oz World, with elements from the iconic 1939 musical starring Judy Garland prominent, including the farm in Kansas, evil flying monkeys, the Wicked Witch's castle, the Emerald City, and, of course the famous Yellow Brick Road.
And as for the rides, two new family-friendly rides will join the roster of movie-themed attractions at Movie World: the Suspended Family Coaster, and the Family Boomerang Racer.
