Arlington may be a sports fans dream, but May 22 – August 23, Globe Life Park becomes the Land of Oz – in a whole new way…in Sand.
Fantasy in Sand featuring The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is a unique family experience that tells the story of characters we all know so well — Dorothy, Toto, the Wizard, the Wicked Witch of the West, the Scarecrow and more — through intricately carved sand sculptures, some of which are 20 feet tall.
Currently, internationally renowned sand sculptors are carving 3 million pounds on sand into 16 scenes from L. Frank Baum’s famous book, including the Cowardly Lion, the Flying Monkeys and the Emerald City of Oz.
The finale is called America the Beautiful and will feature the Lincoln Memorial, Statue of Liberty, Mount Rushmore and other American landmarks. The experience concludes with a Texas-sized sandbox, which is 2,000 square feet, where children can create their own sand sculptures while parents watch from an observation deck. This is the largest indoor sandbox in Texas.
Fantasy in Sand is enclosed in an enormous air-conditioned tent for the guests’ comfort and includes the necessary amenities: parking, accessibility for strollers, ADA compliance for wheelchairs, restrooms and a snack bar.
More information about the event, including tickets and hours of operation, is available a www.FantasyInSand.com. The experience will stay open late on weekend nights when the Texas Rangers play home games so baseball fans may enjoy both events while in Arlington.
