The Oneida Nation of New York is putting the finishing touches on a $20 million gaming facility that will open on June 2.

The Yellow Brick Road Casino is located in Chittenango, the birthplace of author L. Frank Baum. The 67,000 square-foot facility and its amenities take inspiration from the Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

The gambling portions of the casino are open to anyone 18 and over. The Wicked Good Pizza, one of the eateries, will be open to all.
