Witness a Monumental Fantasy in the Sand
Fantasy in Sand, featuring The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, is making its U.S. debut through August 23 near Globe Life Park, in Arlington. This unique family experience tells the story of characters we all know well: Dorothy, Toto, the Wizard, the Wicked Witch, the Scarecrow and more, through a series of intricately carved sand sculptures, some of which are 20 feet tall. It took 13 international champion sand sculptors 14 days to carve the exhibit.
The finale, America the Beautiful, features the Lincoln Memorial, Statue of Liberty, Mount Rushmore and other American landmarks. The experience concludes with a 2,000-square-foot sandbox, the largest in Texas, where children can create their own sand sculptures while parents watch from an observation deck. Fantasy in Sand is enclosed in an enormous air-conditioned tent for comfort and includes parking, accessibility for strollers, ADA compliance for wheelchairs, restrooms and a snack bar.
