Universal Studios[]

Universal Studio Parks[]

The Land of Oz was a small area exclusive to Universal Studios Japan that opened presumably in 2001 until it closed and replaced in 2011. It featured a few attractions and characters walking around such as Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, and Cowardly Lion, along with Munchkins. The area had a Yellow Brick Road for guests to walk around on and a few Munchkin Houses for decoration. There was also a gift store called "Winkie Warehouse"

It only had three attractions which included:

  • Magical Oz-Go-Round, a carousel
  • An abridged one-act stage show production of Wicked (musical) in Japanese which was housed in the Emerald City area
  • Toto & Friends, an animal trick stage show featuring dogs and birds among other animals

Other notes:

  • This should not be confused with or has any connection to the The Land of Oz Theme Park
  • This was an original adaptation regardless of any copyright and was mostly based on the books.
  • The costume design featured Dorothy wearing a blue checkered dress and the Silver Shoes, Scarecrow was simply in a blue overall with a yellow shirt with makeup while Tin Man and Lion were both plush like full body costumes.
