Fans of Dorothy and her magical friends can follow the Yellow Brick Road by rail this June when The Wizard of Oz Train Ride arrives in Tavares, Florida from June 8-24, 2018.
The Wizard of Oz Train Ride debuts in the Orlando area beginning June 8. The attraction is presented by Warner Bros. Consumer Products in partnership with Rail Events Inc., and the Orlando & Northwestern Railway (The Royal Palm Railway Experience), and is licensed by the same team that produced The Polar Express Train Ride.
The experience will retell the story The Wizard of Oz on board a real train. The journey begins in Munchkinland where Dorothy meets Glinda the Good Witch, who suggests she take a train that follows the Yellow Brick Road to see if the Wizard of Oz could help her find a way back to Kansas.
Guests will board the train with Dorothy and several of her special friends as they travel down the Yellow Brick Road to the Emerald City. Along the way, they can enjoy refreshments and live onboard entertainment featuring Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin Man, and Cowardly Lion set to the sounds of the motion picture. Guests will help them defeat the Wicked Witch of the West before arriving at the Emerald City and meeting OZ himself during a live stage show, after which they will receive a special gift.
The entire experience will last approximately two hours. Check-in will begin one and a half hours before the scheduled show time. You need to plan on checking in no later than thirty (30) minutes prior to show time. Restrooms will be available onboard the train as well as The Emerald City.
