Time is Running Out to Buy Tickets for Fantasy in Sand in Arlington

May 18, 2015 04:16PM ● Published by Kevin

Fantasy in Sand announces its “early bird” ticketing discount now through May 21.  All adult tickets are available at 25% off which means everyone pays the child’s price for a limited time – for the kid in all of us.  These specially priced tickets can be used at any time during the run of the exhibit, May 22 through August 23. The website link with discount information is:  www.FantasyInSand.com/EarlyBird.

Fantasy in Sand featuring The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is a unique family experience debuting in Arlington on May 22. It 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.

“We are excited to have Fantasy in Sand making a debut in Arlington this summer,” said Arlington Mayor Robert Cluck. “Locals and visitors alike will be able to experience the iconic story of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and America the Beautiful, which is fitting to have in Arlington, the American Dream City!”

Tickets can be purchased at www.FantasyInSand.com all summer long.  However, the “early bird” discount ticket purchases from now until May 21 are $15.99 (regular price after May 21 will be $19.99) and can only be found at the special landing page www.FantasyInSand.com/EarlyBird . The experience opens May 22 in Parking Lot F by Globe Life Park and will run through August 23.

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 cancreate 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 at 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. 

Hotel packages and tickets are available through the Arlington Convention & Visitors Bureau at www.arlington.org/FantasyInSand.
