Yes, the statue is huge, which is a feat I'm sure. But the face haunts me every time I visit. Not sure why I go back. Hollow, dead eyes staring off into space. Not exactly a spiritual feeling there...

The tickets were way too expensive for family of four. We did get picture by Jesus monument. We took our tripod and it made for nice picture.

There was no way that we could NOT stop by to see this three story Jesus. It was super weird and kind of sad. Jesus is built like a milk carton and needs some paint. We thought you would be able to see him from a major road into Eureka Springs but nope. You have to drive through this kind... More

The statue is very interesting and large. You can tell where they have been making some repairs to damaged parts of the large statue.

As part of The Great Passion Play park; the Christ of the Ozarks statue is 67 feet tall and 65 feet across the arm span. It is an awesome piece of work and gives you a mind set of how big our God is!

The Christ of the Ozarks was a neat statue that was placed on the hill overlooking Eureka Springs and the Ozark area. It is the tallest statue of Christ on the North American continent. It is free to visit. While you are there, you can also see a chunk of the Berlin wall on the drive back to the statue.... More

It is hard to get to but worth the drive. The grounds around it are well kept and it is cool to see, and I'm not particularly a religious person.

If you are already seeing the passion play, it's probably worth seeing. It's a big statue of Jesus and the builders made sure they were buried next to it.

It is majestic to see from a distance and is beautiful at night. It is just an easy walk to see it up close. They are raising money to refurbish the statue and it is evident that it needs some work before it deteriorates any further.
