Quote:Oz was dreamed and designed by Jack Pentes, on behalf of Carolina Caribbean Corp., and headed by Grover Robbins, of Tweetsie RR. Both men were exceptional "visionaries". It was their plan to create something special for children - something that would be fun and financially compatible with the ski slopes of Beech - and, in turn, would bring parents, purchasers of resort property. Just as important, local talent and craftsmen were employed, bringing pride and opportunities to the area. It was a grand dream and was done in a grand fashion. OZ exceeded everyone's expectations of success.

Six months before its opening, however, Mr. Robbins contracted bone cancer and passed away.

Didn't know about this place. Someone posted about it on Reddit earlier today. Apparently every year it's open for tours on one weekend in the fall. Has anyone been there?

Yes, horror, fright, gore! We need more EVIL!

I saw this on an Adam the Woo video.  I didn't realize it will still open at times.

Maybe the park will reopen fully outside of special events. I could see a lot of potential.
