When the latest MGM Grand opened on December 18, 1993, it was owned by MGM Grand Inc. At that time it had an extensive Wizard of Oz theme, including the green “Emerald City” color of the building and the decorative use of Wizard of Oz memorabilia. After entering the casino’s main entrance, one would find themselves in the Oz Casino facing Emerald City. Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion were seen in front of the city. The Emerald City attraction featured an elaborate yellow brick road walk-through, complete with the cornfield, apple orchard, and haunted forest, as well as audio-animatronic figures of Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion, and the Wicked Witch of the West. It would end at the door of the city, leading inside for a performance of “The Wizard’s Secrets”. When MGM Grand began its extensive refurbishment in 1996, the Oz Casino was the first to go. The Emerald City was completely demolished, and the Emerald City Gift Shop was moved to a new shopping section of the casino. The store remained open until early 2003.
Presented is a life size representation of the Scarecrow that was displayed at the MGM Grand during the Oz era. This friendly guy standing at 6′ tall (with hat) was featured in the restaurant. It is constructed in great detail to mimic the loveable character from the film. Many hours of artistry went into this one from the face, tattered clothes and to the tippy top of the top of the hat. Note, the animatronic portion does not work anymore and it would need electronic reconstruction.
