Hold on to your ruby slippers and follow me down the yellow brick road........


Well, while ZA had been on its long journey back, I was not just looking after the moves and behind the scenes site workings.

I had been working on a special journey for ZT 1 Fans: an expansion pack of my own based on this classic movie.

Along with the talents of some very special friends from RCT 2, we are all proud bring to you:



The Wizard of OZ - The Zoo Tycoon 1 Expansion


This expansion includes the following downloads:

Buildings
The Emerald Castle - a rendition of the Wizard's home
The Witch's Castle - a rendition of the castle occupied by the Wicked Witch
Auntie Em's Cafe - a rendition of Dorothy's home on the farm with Auntie Em and Uncle Henry

Arches and Columns - a selection of arches and columns to decorate gardens, walkways and other sections of a zoo.

Foliage - poppy fields and a wide variety of foliage to add color and beauty to your zoo creation, as well as some haunted forest foliage to build up the haunted forest Dorothy and friends traveled through on their journey to retrieve the witch's broomstick.

Objects - a sign, a crystal ball, the woodsman's cabin as scenery, paths & fountains. Many more but too many to list here. Watch for new releases.


Animals - a special little creation from Dr.Rick. Dorothy's little dog Toto

A special thanks to Fern, Jay, Dr. Rick, Lam, and the Designer's Guild members for ideas and input for the building configurations. Extra thanks to Fern and Jay for created designs and putting up with my whip and moody days while this expansion was created.

The adventure you are about to embark on will amaze you.

The sights you see will surprise you.

By the time you are finished here, you will be drooling with anticipation.

Like in the movie, our journey begins on the farm. Visit Dorothy's Kansas Home transformed into a restaurant for your guests to taste the great old time farm breakfasts served in farmhouses across America.

Presenting * Auntie Em's Cafe *

As the story moves on, trouble erupts on her way home from school with this little guy, created for this expansion by the talented Dr. Rick.

Presenting * Toto *

After a visit by the grouchy Miss Gulch, Dorothy runs away from home and stumbles across Professor Marvel. Your guests can also stop by and see Professor Marvel's Trailor on their tour of your zoo. This is a scenery only item.

* Professor Marvel's Trailor *

Visiting the Professor was traumatic; Dorothy discovers from the Professor that Auntie Em may be sick and worried about her, so she sets out to return home.

When she arrives, the wind is blowing and a cyclone is about to hit the farm. She heads for the storm shelter but can't get in, so decides to go to her room in the house.

It hits and the house is tossed and spins, and both Dorothy and Toto begin a Magical Journey.

After some time tossing and spinning, the house lands in a strange place Dorothy has never seen before.

We're not in Kansas any more, Toto.

Dorothy is met by Glinda, the Good witch of the North, who tells Dorothy she is in Munchkinland.

Here is a set of buildings that are scenery only items to build your own Munchkinland.

* The Munchkinland Village *        or      * The Munchkinland Village Combined *

In Munchkinland, there are all kinds of colored flowers and trees to make it look very pretty. Here is a pack of various foliage items to help beautify your version of Munchkinland.

* Miscellaneous Foliage *

It's finally time for Dorothy and Toto to continue on their journey. The Munchkins have told her the best place to get advice on how to get home is to visit the Wizard in the Emerald City. When asked how she would get there, the munchkins advise Follow the Yellow Brick Road. All Journeys to OZ begin at the beginning of the

* Yellow Brick Road *

As Dorothy travels the yellow brick road, she meets a few friends to help her on her journey to see the wizard. While I couldn't do much to represent her three friends, here are a few goodies you can add to your zoo that relate to a couple of them.

* Miscellaneous OZ Extras *


In this zip, you will also find a few little extras for decorating. The zip file contains:

The Woodsman's Cabin - where Dorothy meets the Tinman
The Scarecrow Statue - use the cornstalks to create the spot she met the Scarecrow.

Extras Include

Plain Rainbow Arch
Rainbow Welcome Arch
Pink Hanging Flower Basket
Yellow Hanging Flower Basket
Crystal Ball
Character Globe
Gargoyle Column


The 5 companions continue through the forest until they finally reach the outer edges. They emerge into an area filled with pink poppies and far off in the distance is the Emerald City itself. As they begin to run towards the City, an awful magic spell is cast upon them that makes them want to lay down in the poppies and sleep. Glinda steps in and counters the sleeping spell with some falling snow to wake up the companions so they can continue their journey to the city. Make your own poppy fields with these next release files.

* Poppy Fields *  and  * Quarter Tile Poppy *

To make it look like your zoo guests are walking through the poppy fields, you can add in this path.

* Oz Poppy Path *

Thanks to the talents of the Community Fence Queen, Fern, you can also add in this quaint little poppy edging to your zoo decor.

* Oz Poppy Edging *

After a short nap and enjoying the poppies for a short time, the companions continue along the Yellow Brick Road towards the Emerald City. As they get closer, they pass through the Emerald City Arch.

We start with an Entrance Arch

* Emerald City Entrance Arch *

They have finally reached their destination. BUT, they are refused entry at first, until the witch writes in the sky for the people of the Emerald City to surrender Dorothy to the witch. Once the entrance guard knew it was the witch's Dorothy standing at the door, the companions were permitted entry into

* Emerald City Castle *

After speaking with the Wizard, Dorothy and friends continue their journey to obtain the Witch's broomstick. One of the areas they pass through is the Haunted forest.

I would turn back if I were you.

* Haunted Forest Items *

In the Haunted forest, the companions get bushwhacked by the Witch's flying monkeys, and Dorothy and Toto are kidnapped and taken to the dreaded

* Wicked Witch's Castle *

A frightening place, none the less.

Note: As with the Emerald Castle, to use this castle, a medium map is suggested. Also, when using both castles in the same zoo, a large map will better accommodate both castles, as their footprints ingame are quite large. Note - langZA03.dll dated November 26, 2007 or later is needed

After returning to the Emerald City and delivering the broomstick to the Wizard, it is discovered that he really doesn't have a magical way to get Dorothy and Toto back home, so decides to take her himself.

* The Wizard's Ride Home to Kansas *

Rather then recreate another item, it is suggested you use the Hot Air Balloon Ride.

This great creation was made by Devona and Mark Bell, and is available at the Zookeeper's Lounge HERE
