Along the way, everyone will experience the adventures of DOROTHY™ and her friends as they find their way back to true happiness. Elements of the movie available only in this licensed exhibit include the RUBY SLIPPERS™, the characters everyone knows and loves from the film, and classic movie moments.

You can visit the Wagon of Professor Marvel, and create your own tornado in DOROTHY’S™ bedroom. Explore Munchkin houses and meet Dorothy and her friends, SCARECROW™, COWARDLY LION™ and TIN MAN™. Enter The Emerald City™ and create a “Horse of a Different Color,” play at the kaleidoscope and prism stations, but “pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.” Climb the mountain to the Castle of the WICKED WITCH OF THE WEST™ to capture her broom from WINGED MONKEYS™. Finally, just remember to click your heels three times while reciting “There’s no place like home,” to depart the Land of Oz.
