THE WIZARD OF OZ™ Train Ride

Announcing the return of THE WIZARD OF OZ™ Train Ride beginning at the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad July 14. This 2½ hour event and train ride will retell the story of the beloved movie, The Wizard of Oz, on board a real train.

About This Trip

The journey begins in Munchkinland where DOROTHY™ meets GLINDA THE GOOD WITCH™, who suggests she take a train that follows the YELLOW BRICK ROAD™ to see if the WIZARD OF OZ™ could help her find a way back to Kansas. Guests will board the train with Dorothy and several of her special friends as they travel down the Yellow Brick Road to the Emerald City.

Along the way, you’ll enjoy refreshments and live entertainment on board featuring Dorothy, SCARECROW™, TIN MAN™, and COWARDLY LION™ set to the sounds of the motion picture. Help them defeat the WICKED WITCH OF THE WEST™ before arriving at the Emerald City and experiencing the thrill of meeting THE GREAT AND POWERFUL OZ™ himself during a live stage show. You’ll then return to Munchkinland with the characters on board the train and available for photos.

Children will receive a special gift for helping Dorothy on her unforgettable journey!

Families are encouraged to wear their favorite The Wizard of Oz attire and costumes for the ride!
