It was pretty cool to go up to see this statue in the off season. You can tell this area gets really packed when the Passion Play is open. There are some nice views of the Crescent Hotel from this spot.

Been to see the statue many times since the early 80's. Trees have grown taller and ticker since then, so it's harder to see the city, but still worth the view.

This statue- which can be seen from different places all around Eureka Springs, just keep a look-out!- is truly amazing! It's HUGE!! More than that, we find it to be moving, and a very spiritual place.

We just walked and read plaques and took pics as it was the middle of February and was not the season for the play.

We enjoyed our visit to the Christ of the Ozarks. Beautiful statue and surroundings. Statue is in need of some repairs, Amazing how big the Jesus statue is up close. Be sure to see a piece of the Berlin Wall with Psalm 23 spray painted on it in the same parking lot of the statue! Moving to think that it... More

We went to check this thing out, because what an oddity! The staff at the Passion Play area were very friendly, and the place looked pretty interesting. As we approached Jesus, we noticed something funny up near his head. Soon we realized what we were seeing was THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF RED WASPS!!! They were nesting in the plaster, and... More

If this is your thing, you will enjoy it. We went on a Sunday morning in the off season, so there were virtually no other people there. We entered, snapped a few pics, and left. Apparently, there is a big play that they put on during other parts of the year, and there was a lot of parking for that.

The huge statue of Christ is totally amazing. The pathway leading up is beautiful especially in the spring time when the azaleas are in full bloom

We visited the statue in person, since we had seen it from much of the town. I guess the buildings were open when we went through but it was completely deserted. It was like a deserted Disney world with a gift shop, a bible museum, and some other buildings. I repeat there was no one visiting anything when we came,... More

A great experience. Wished we could have seen the passion play too but it closed the week-end before we arrived on Monday.
