Warner Bros. Movie World in Queensland, Australia is set to open the world’s first The Wizard of Oz-themed area with two new family-friendly rides.
Opening in 2024, the zone will feature a suspended family coaster that will reach speeds of 67 km per hour through over 1,400 ft of track with a height of over 60 ft. The second attraction will be a family boomerang racer comprising two racing tracks over 700 ft in length, and 70 ft in height, reaching speeds of 58 km per hour.
“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.
“This precinct is going to be like nothing we have ever done at Movie World and we are working closely with our partners at Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment to make this one of the most beautifully themed precincts in Australian theme parks.”
