My mom went when she was a little girl and has talked about going for years. We surprised her with a Private Tour. The weather wasn't great but you can't control that. So fun! Highly recommend it. Want to come back next year when they have OzFest!

Overall it was a good time, bringing back memories of childhood watching the movie. The young tour guide was amazing. She was animated, friendly, and was very knowledgeable. The mountain and views and the way the park recreated the scenes was also amazing. The only reason why I gave it 4 circles out of 5 is because for the amount of money we paid for the private tour, it would have been nice for the employees to dress up as character to reenact scenes along the tour. Perhaps some music/songs from the movie stationed at some of the stops could be added to add to the tour. I know it cost a lot to create this place so the price is not going to be cheap, but these suggestions are not too much to ask for to be added to make the experience well worth the money.

My mother and I had been to Oz in the mid-70s when it was a magical theme park. She remembered it and has talked about it over the years. We planned to attend Autumn at Oz this year, but because of COVID it didn't happen. So I arranged a private tour to surprise her for her birthday. We took my sister and niece who had never been and it was a special family experience. Miles was so knowledgeable about about the history of the park and the plans for the future. We learned things we never would have if the park had been open. And we had the place to ourselves. What a treat to go down memory lane on the yellow brick road! We hope they will be able to survive through this and open again next year so we can take my mother back for her 90th birthday! Thanks Miles!

So this was a bitter sweet for me as I was first here in 1971 as a 10 year old. I remembered the place as having a magical like presence, but of course to a 10 year old it would have. I remembered the singing and frolking and all the fun our family had. It was a great place to visit. Fast forward to now.....I brought my wife, who loves the books, here for her first visit. SO much has changed of course. Now it is a 'Kind Of' theme. Way back in 1970 it opened as a theme park based on the Wizard of Oz books by Carolina Caribbean Corporation under the guidance of Grover Robbins, who had been successful with Tweetsie Railroad, another theme park up in Boone that is still fully operational. Oz was operational until 1980. We came here on a personal tour but you can also book birthday parties and private functions from June through October. You can also book exclusive tours of Dorothy’s house, leisurely strolls along the 44,000-brick yellow brick road, and picnic lunches at the Fountain of Youth and the Judy Garland Memorial Overlook. There are two annual events held at Oz. Journeys With Dorothy take place every Friday in June during Beech Mountain’s Family Fun Month, and the three-day Autumn at Oz celebration is held the first weekend in September. So even if it was not as I remember I still had a great trip down memory lane and my wife loved the tour. I encourage everyone to make plans now for a journey over the rainbow and come check out The historic Land of Oz.

I was greeted at the welcome center by a young lady. I followed her to our destination. We got out and did a back stage tour of The Land Of Oz. She is VERY knowledgeable of her job. It was fun. My best was the views and where the characters once performed. Then on to the museum..which was very fasinating. Again,she knew her history of so much. The gift shop was last on the tour and was nice.
