FRENCH LICK, IN – Warner Bros. Consumer Products in partnership with Rail Events Inc., and the French Lick Scenic Railway are proud to announce the return of THE WIZARD OF OZ™ Train Ride to Southern Indiana beginning March 16. Licensed by the same team that brought you THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride, the two and a half-hour roundtrip journey will retell the story of the beloved movie, The Wizard of Oz, on board a real train. 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 onboard entertainment 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. Children will receive a special gift for helping Dorothy on her unforgettable journey!
