CLOSE

“SayWord” kind of hard to believe that some amusement parks around the world are not open anymore.  With the hype around The Wiz and The Wizard Of Oz lately  Photographer Seph Lawless put many photos of a park that’s currently closed in Beech Mountain.  “LAND OF OZ” is still standing, but not open.  It opened up on 1970 and closed in 1980.  Lawless always known for his photos of urban decay buildings and abandoned spaces. He just published a book called “Bizzaro.”  This park was once the second most popular tourist park on the eastern side. You could explore Dorothy’s farmhouse, meet characters from the moview, and also participate in a hot air balloon ride.
