Theme park fans to get a new 'Wizard of Oz' land this year

February 11, 2024, 1:36 PM · We are getting some new details about the "world-first" new Wizard of Oz land coming this year to Warner Bros. Movie World on Australia's Gold Coast.

The Wizard of Oz land will include two new family roller coasters, as well as thematic elements in the land, including "projection mapping, stunning sculptures, and facades as you as you follow The Yellow Brick Road."

I remember going there when it was new. It seems in spite of it losing the amazing Batman: The Ride (a motion sim, not what 6 Flags has), and the Looney Tunes River Ride its become Australia's premier park, especially for coasters.

However, I still cannot forgive, nor forget the loss of the Gremlins/Beatlejuice Mashup ride, nor the loss of the Police Academy Stunt Show.

Robert, Two Australian Parks in a week, are you planning at trip? Do we get Australian Sea World (no relation) this week?

This is really good news. I was last there back in 2021 and the park was feeling quite worn out. Nice to see some properly themed investments happening, because this is a park with a lot of potential that really let things slip over the last decade.
