The first ever The Wizard of Oz themed zone is opening in 2024 at Warner Bros. Movie World in Gold Coast, Australia, featuring two new family-friendly rides.

The theme park’s multimillion-dollar The Wizard of Oz land will have a suspended roller coaster that reaches speeds of up to 67km/hr and a boomerang racer that zips guests around at 58km/hr, amongst other thematic offerings.

“The new precinct will be developed in the retired Arkham Asylum area and will transform the space into the colourful and vibrant world of Oz as seen in the nostalgic 1939 film The Wizard of Oz,” said Village Roadshow CEO, Clark Kirby.
“Movie World fans in Australia will get to step into Oz like no fan has done before,” said Peter van Roden, senior vice president at Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment. “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.”
