We did get to see the statue; however every other Passion Play attraction was closed, not even the gift shop was open.

This is a place you simply must visit. Eureka Springs can be seen from there. They also have the Passion Play, gift shops and several tours.

From the top of the Crescent, Christ of the Ozarks is pretty impressive, but the closer you get, the more disappointing is becomes, unless you like tall white "buildings".

Enjoyed the visit to see this large statue overlooking the countryside. Very relaxing spot to sit and regroup.

The statue and the views are breathtaking! I especially enjoyed the Bible museum where you can find original translations of the Latin Vulgate dating back to the 13th century along with many other older translations and collections.

I know its the largest statue and can be seen for miles so we had to visit. Once there the views were really great, but the statue seems so weird and out of place. Definitely underwhelming. We didn't go to the museum, so maybe there is more info about it.

A must see when you are in Eureka Springs. This is a very peaceful place and very beautiful to see. It is a lot bigger than you would think and they play peaceful music while you view. You will come away feeling more in tune with nature and closer to God.

Great view and you can't beat this being a free attraction. There are also other interesting things at this location including an open air theater and a section of the Berlin Wall. The statue does look a little like a milk carton with a head on it (don't expect Christ the Redeemer), but definitely worth the time for a great... More
