Wizard of Oz Theme Park

Postby bluesunday » Tue Jul 19, 2005 6:38 pm

Here in Niagara Falls, a local mall that's been out of business for as long as I can remember might be torn down and the land leftover (plus some surrounding vacant property) will be used to make a Wizard of Oz themed park. According to what my mom's heard, it's supposed to be something along the lines of Disney World but there's not nearly enough space for that. It would be cool if it actually goes through, because a majority of the place is planned to be indoors. But there's people that live literally right behind and surrounding this mall, so I honestly don't know what they're going to do about it; and if there's going to be a lot of noise...then I don't think they'll be takin' it too well...I still can't imagine what that place would look like though! :shock:

Believe it or not, there has been one before... the Land of Oz in North Carolina a long time ago...

This is the same project that got shot down in Kansas as well .. same company has been looking for a place to build this place. The original plans had a nice layout and a custom B&M inverted around a mountain, rumored to be named "Flying Monkey" or something along those lines to go with the monkeys from the book/movie.

Why oompa loompas? Two very different authors and books/movies.

I thought it was Willy Wonka that had the oompa loompas - Wizard of Oz had munchkins.

I can't think of many themed areas of the park. Kansas, Emerald City, and maybe the forrest? If they made Kansas in black and white would kick A$$ (except all the guests wearing color).

The evil oompa loompas brain washed me into thinking they were the nice munchkins from Wizard Of Oz. I told you they were evil! :evil:
