In 2024 you’ll be able to follow the yellow brick road to Warner Bros. Movie World in Australia to check out their upcoming new precinct themed to “The Wizard of Oz.” When it comes to iconic movies familiar among many generations, few are bigger than “The Wizard of Oz.” This makes it the perfect setting for a theme park experience the whole family can enjoy.
This world-first Wizard of Oz precinct will include two new, currently unnamed rides that families can enjoy together. There will be a suspended family coaster as well as a family boomerang racer. These attractions will feature low height and age restrictions allowing more of the family to take part.
Village Roadshow CEO, Clark Kirby said, “The new precinct will be developed in the retired Arkham Asylum area and will transform the space into the colorful and vibrant world of Oz as seen in the nostalgic 1939 film “The Wizard of Oz.” 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.”
“Movie World fans in Australia will get to step into Oz like no fan has done before. A first of its kind, “The Wizard of Oz” land will extend the storytelling and bring of one of the most iconic and beloved films to life in an amazing way,” said Peter van Roden, SVP, Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment. “We are over the moon (or should we say rainbow) to be bringing Oz to guests of Movie World in 2024.”
The multi-million dollar precinct will feature thematic elements including projection mapping, as well as stunning sculptures and facades as you journey along the yellow brick road. A peek at the concept art for the new precinct features areas themed to Dorothy’s Kansas farm, the Wicked Witch of the West’s castle, Munchkinland, and Emerald City.
The all new Wizard of Oz Precinct will be joining other iconic properties at Warner Bros. Movie World including DC Comics, Looney Tunes, Scooby-Doo, and more. Learn more on the Warner Bros. Movie World website.
