A whole area to enjoy. Long running play. Holy land tours. Noah’s ark petting zoo. And of course the famous Huge Jesus statue. That alone is worth the trip.

We did the Holy Land tour and museums during the day and went to the Passion Play in the evening. All were interesting and educational. The potter’s demo was so sweet and lovely, especially liked it. Great experience.

We enjoyed the play and appreciated all the actors and staff that made this presentation possible. It was wonderful to see the life of Christ portrayed on the stage and to appreciate the message of salvation.

To see the Bible acted out with real live animals makes the book come alive!!! It means so much more to see the stories acted out in period costumes. I was surprised that it actually made me cry.

This is a wonderful experience. The day we visited it was cold and wet but we still loved it. I would recommend this to everyone. Be sure to take something to sit on and if the weather is cold bring a blanket.

We have visited the area before, but not when the Passion Play was performed. I have not heard much about it in recent years. The production was far better than we expected. We truly enjoyed the play.

Pretty much everything is based on donation, letting zoo, bible museum, not sure about the holy land tour and the ticket for the adult does not include the buffet. Hope it helps, you can go to their website for more info... More
