When going to Orlando for a vacation all we think is about Disney, theme parks and the beaches. However there is a theme park for Christians too. It is called the Holy land experience, mainly because it replicate many sites of Jerusalem.
The place is very educational as it has many historical artifact and museum that give you a glimpse of past events. What touch me me was to see a bible with blood stain of some one that was killed while holding on to his bible. However this park is not about roller coasters 🙂 .
“There are many wonderful things to learn at The Holy Land Experience. From the moment you pass through the gates of our walled city, you will be immersed in ancient Jerusalem. The structures and exhibits characterize the style, architecture, and settings that existed in the Holy Land 2000 years ago. The Garden Tomb, Qumran Dead Sea Caves, Great Temple and Plaza, Jerusalem Model, and Wilderness Tabernacle are all intricately detailed, both inside and out, to provide you with a clearer understanding of their biblical significance.”
The place is great for kid as they have a replica of Noah’s ark and representation other bibles stories. the main attraction for adult, I believe are the play that they perform several time a day very professionally done. they have a library and a small restaurant that serves plates from Israel too.
“The Holy Land Experience brings together the sights and sounds of the world of the Bible in a unique and interactive way unlike anywhere else. It is a living, biblical museum that takes you 7000 miles away and 2000 years back in time to the land of the Bible. Its combination of sights, sounds, and tastes will stimulate your senses and blend together to create a spectacular new experience.”
They run about 3 or 4 theatrical plays every day which involve professional acting music and high tech. is very entertaining and above all very educational and inspirational. beside that you they have replica of the thumb of Jesus, replica of the street of Jerusalem, ancient amphitheater etc. if you are visiting Orlando try it an let us know how you like it.
