The movie classic "Wizard Of Oz" is still one of my favorites of all time. Some kids like like it, some kids have nightmares about it. I mean, those flying monkeys are way too real looking, right? In 1970 the "Land Of Oz" theme park opened in Beach Mountain, North Carolina. It was abandoned from 1980 until 2016, and was pretty much quite creepily still intact until then.

As you'll see in the video below, Mother Nature has been reclaiming land for some years now. Fires and vandals have also played a part in the park's dilapidation.

Before 2016, "Land Of Oz" was a creepy look back in time, but a pretty cool look back as well.

"Land Of Oz" apparently now opens up to the public for special occasions. It's currently in better shape than what you see in this video. You can check the official website for pics and details HERE.
