OZ-Based Theme Park

Not located in Kansas
  [vote for,

See link for a long long list of Oz books, the first fourteen or so by the original author of "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz", L. Frank Baum. After his death others took up the task of entertaining children with "light" stuff ("dark" entertainment seems all-too-common today).

The location of this theme park could be in one of the U.S. states adjacent to Kansas, near the border with Kansas. Entering the theme park should only be done via some sort of giant tornado funnel on the Kansas side of the border, after which, of course, you won't be in Kansas any more....

       Will there be flying monkeys ?

       We have the tech to make ornithopters that look like flying monkeys, so why not? (According to NASA, you can make anything fly if you put a powerful enough engine on it --or make its weight negligable.)

       I thought this was basically Washington, post-Trump - Wizard of Crass?

       Nothing in the park about spiders that can kill you in 3 seconds, or paralysis ticks, or crocodiles, or croc-eating pythons, or deadly jelly- bean-sized jellyfish, or even drop bears then? What kind of an Oz-based theme park is this?   

       Ya wanna know what really happens to Dorothy or anyone that ventures off of the yellow brick road?

       I'd go just because I haven't skipped for a really long time and I should. But make the monkeys a little nicer, would ya?

       Such proposals should be subjected to specific criticism rather than rejected in toto.   

       Copyrights are likely expired for most of the material. Expenses of paying Baum descendants might be very small.   

       Do kids now days even know of OZ ? Kids dragging parents to theme parks is the primary way they grow to sustainable size.
