At the formerly-abandoned Land of Oz theme park you can rent Dorothy's House!

Good news fans of Oz! You can now rent Dorothy's House in Land of Oz theme park! Details below…

BACKGROUND: There’s a little-known festival that takes place at North Carolina’s (formerly) abandoned Land of Oz amusement park. The park opens its doors to the public just once a year for “Autumn at Oz,” where former employees and past park visitors reminisce about the weird little Wizard of Oz theme park. Recently, photographer Seph Lawless had the opportunity to explore the abandoned ruins and photograph this whimsical wonderland...

A little bit about Seph and his photography project: Bizarro:

"My work is part of a much larger themed project called Autopsy of America which documents America's most abandoned and dead parts of the country in hopes to finding a cause of death. Most of my projects focus of a particular abandoned theme. Usually a theme that is very relatable and nostalgic for the viewer. Often times they are moved emotionally. The goal is to use art to emotionally move the viewer into some form of activism that can better America. This isn't social media. This is a social movement. Sometimes words just aren't enough, so I started talking pictures. 

I set out to photograph the 10 most hauntingly beautiful abandoned amusement parks for my book Bizarro and had to include the Land of Oz Because it's a really unique place. It sits hidden on top of a Mountain, one of the highest mountain peaks in the eastern U.S., so being there was almost like entering another planet. It was surreal and completely beautiful."

The Land of Oz theme park was open from 1970 to 1980 and its opening day saw over 20,000 visitors. Guests enjoyed strolling down the Yellow Brick Road, and hanging out with the Cowardly Lion, Scarecrow, Tin Man and the Wicked Witch of the West. Afterwards, there was a show at the Emerald City, complete with a balloon ride, which was actually a modified ski lift. Visitors could enjoy a breathtaking view of the park amidst Beech Mountain Resort's gorgeous scenery. Unfortunately the death of the original owner before the park opened and a mysterious fire in 1975 marred the initial success of the park and it closed suddenly in 1980. Now, the Yellow Brick Road is missing a few of its bricks, but the park is still there after being lovingly restored. 


The park is open once a year for a reunion of former employees and past guests, called “Autumn at Oz.” In 2009, over 8,000 people attended. Every year more characters return and more vendors show up. So, if you’re in the area, drop by for a stroll through the poppy field. [CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION: Emerald Mtn]

Many of your questions in the video could have been answered by speaking with Cindy at Emerald Mountain Realty and by studying the exhibit in the museum at Appalachian State University in Boone. There is more to this story and it is freely available. The Land of Oz was definitely a magical place during my childhood. I was fortunate to make numerous visits there, and Cindy has done a terrific job caretaking and documenting everything.

Absolutely one of the most gorgeous areas in the southeast. Beech Mt., the highest town east of the Mississippi with Oz on the very top at 5,500+ feet, is a sportsman's paradise. Skiing, tubing, skating, sledding in the winter. Biking, hiking, rafting, mountain climbing in the summer. Five state views(NC, TN, VA, WV, KY)100 miles+ on clear days. And.....Land of Oz on the tip top. Been there! Done that! NC's High Country! FANTASTIC! GOOGLE IT!!

We visited the Land of Oz in the mid 70's. It was absolutely fantastic and magical. Amazing place to take the children -well as an adult I loved it as much as the little ones!! What a shame it has been abandoned. Wish someone would decide to restore it and reopen.

nancynickole made a comment that this is the only place shes ever seen bobcats in the wild after hiking through NC and I think she said KN. Shes an advocate of re-opening the park. After that she won't see the bobcats there either. They found a place that for most of the year they have peace from all the building and the people.

The Wizard of Oz represents the basic morals and values I think we are losing in our all-wired society. Let's bring back these values! If you are serious about wanting to participate in getting the Land of Oz open year-round, please email me at SusanLSpalding@gmail.com. I do not know the owners, or have any relationship at all with the Land of Oz, BUT I am a Mom who loves the idea of working with the owners (IF THEY ARE INTERESTED) to make the Land of Oz a memorable destination once again.

This beautiful place is highly underutilized. It is ONLY opens for one weekend a year tickets are +$20 even for children. My friends family had a house in the gated community that surrounds Oz. The views from the park are breathtaking! I am a hiker and have hiked most of the NC and TN mountians, this is the only place I have seen bobcats! I have seen the nearly every time I have walked the yellow brick road. On two different occasions I saw a momma and her two cubs. This is only one of the many things you miss out on by the park being closed to the public. Beech Mountain needs to utilize this Emerald Gem!!!

This is not abandoned nor derelict. Cindy and her husband have gone to great pains to restore and replace many of the features of the original park. When Oz weekend comes each year, thousands come to enjoy and you can book private tours topped off with a picnic lunch. The proceeds are used to maintain the park and continue restoration.

Abandoned and derelict are a little harsh. We went less than three years ago and took a private tour with the kids (I love lost things and this qualifies) through along with Cindy who is sort of the Caretaker of Oz (we gave her the title). There's also a collection of memorabilia there along with the yellow brick road and several of the scenes and sets where the characters performed.

This place is on Beech Mountain in Banner Elk NC. In Avery County, my home. It is a great little place. There is the house that is crooked because it landed with the tornado in Oz.

Renting the house also allows visitors to see Oz at other times of the year, when it is normally not open for visitors. It's also a great place to ski in the winter. And there are a lot more places to explore around the area.
