Floating Queen of the Sea


Shannon. 24. Graphic Designer. Straight and Single Female. Classic & Horror Film Fan. I am a magically effervescent being who lives in "Waterfall Paradise Land" aka the mountains of Northeast Alabama (you should see it in the autumn). I've got too much time on my hands. I think my mask of sanity is about to slip.

In the resort town of Beech Mountain, North Carolina, lies a neglected theme park that survived for just ten years before it closed its doors and fell into disrepair. Entrepreneur Grover Robbins opened the park in 1970 with the investment of veteran Hollywood actress Debbie Reynolds, who bought several props and costumes from the 1939 Wizard of Oz film from MGM studios to display in the small museum. Visitors could walk down the Yellow Brick Road, “experience” the tornado which struck Dorothy’s house, and visit with the Scarecrow, Tinman, the Lion, and the Wicked Witch of the West.
