The wife and I were here for a day last week. To see all the shows and have time for everything, it would take two days, but one day was OK. It is a welcome relief from the screeching electronic noise of Universal or Disney. The emphasis is on live bible-themed acts of 15 to 75 minutes, which are offered... More

My wife and I visited HL in Orlando during Christmas week. There is so much to see and do. We spent most of our time watching bible stories re-enacted in a large theater. Stage production was great with background video and actors. Very nicely done. We also enjoyed strolling around and seeing various exhibits. After doing Disney/Univ several times this... More

This is very well done. We have been twice and want to go back. LOTS to see and do ~ a perfect way to visit the Holy Land without going over seas. Wonderful during the Passover Season as they relate the way it was then with our celebration of the Resurrection.

The price we thought as we approached the HLT was a little high. But as we looked around and then when we went inside we were impressed. We saw some of the plays and felt they were very Biblical and well done. The exhibitions were wonderful. We felt so blessed by what we were experiencing. My wife and I spent... More

Our family went to HLE because my 6 year old son had seen it advertised on Smile of a Child TV and was so excited about it. He actually chose HLE over Disney's Animal Kingdom - that's how much we wanted to see this place. Unfortunately, we were disappointed to say the least. There are so many disturbing things about...

I was on the fence about spending $50 to see/hear Bible stories because I know them all, but I went anyway. I'm glad I did! The performances I attended were excellent and memorable. I saw The Women Who Loved Jesus, and this shed a new light on old stories as each was woven into the others. The Forgiven show really... More

We had planned to visit the Holy Land Experience for several years. SO disappointed. Very few employees and those we did see were not very friendly. About every 15 feet there was a sign posted telling us we were being observed on closed circuit TV. There was no order or cohesion to the exhibits-it was a terrible experience-and very expensive!!!

The Holy Land Experience is great place to experience the Bible come alive. Getting to see the Holy of Holies, the empty tomb and many other places Jesus walked.

Spent $100.00 for my wife and I to tour this exhibit. All of the tacky statues near the entry should have been a clue of what is inside. This place is collection of tacky exhibits. I was hoping to see a reenactment of the holy land with realistic structures and a live cast. A TOTAL DISAPPOINTMENT and a RIPOFF!

This is the third time we visited the Holy Land since it opened. We have always enjoyed the shows and the experience. The price may seem high if you take the whole family but you need to consider the amount of staff and the effort the cast puts in. You'll spend more than that for a local Broadway performance.
