Return to Land of Oz in NC mountains during June

Posted May 16, 2016

— Get a flashback to the 1970s at North Carolina's very own Land of Oz. The theme park, located on top of Beech Mountain has been out of commission since 1980, but the memories live on in private events.

For a third straight summer, the park marks "Family Fun Month" with limited access every Friday in June.

Six daily tours, led by Dorothy herself, will be offered on June 3, 10, 17 and 24 at 10:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 1:30 p.m., 2:30 p.m., and 3:30 p.m.

The park features a scale replica of Autie Em's house, a yellow brick road and the witch's castle. Visitors ride the chair lift ($10) to the top of the mountain to begin the tour.

Tickets go on sale each Monday and cost $12.50. Access is limited to adults and children 3 feet tall and taller.
