A closed but not abandoned theme park in western North Carolina incorporates elements of the classic story. Shot through a fence without trespassing.

It is an amazing sight to see the actual yellow brick road. Given the limitations of access, you've made an excellent picture of this interesting place.

Fantastic scene and capture ... what a neat theme park; will it open again?

@RBL: Some people around there said it opens a couple of days a year and it is available for rent for special events. I have no personal knowledge, however.
