The coaster runs on 260 feet of steel rail track and has 6 cars that will carry up to 12 adults and children.  Children under 36" will not be allowed to ride the coaster and children between 36" and 42" must be accompanied by an adult.
Land of Oz Wizard's Balloon
The newest ride in the Land of Oz is the Wizard’s Balloon ride. It features eight festive balloons which can accommodate up to 32 riders. The balloons, powered by a hydraulic cylinder, slowly rise and rotate until they reach a maximum height of 32 feet. Once they reach the top, the balloons continue to rotate and offer a panoramic view of the Land of Oz.

The Aberdeen Sertoma Club, with the generous support of the community, funded the purchase of a 30-horse Allan Herschell carousel which operates in the Land of Oz.

All profits generated through the operation of the train, roller coaster, carousel, and balloon rides are used for future improvements at Storybook Land and the Land of Oz. Hours of operation vary beginning mid August.
