We stopped here on a Sunday and didn't think it was open since you had to drive through the passion play area. But keep driving and you come to a parking area. There were a lot of people there! The statue is impressive but Jesus looks a bit boxy in design. But neat experience and good for photos. It was... More

Christ of the Ozarks juts out of the woods and can be seen from a distance. After visiting Eureka Springs we drove up to see the Christ. The statue was erected in 1966. It's not the most attractive depiction of Christ but it was fun to see. The Passion Play is performed during the summer but we were not able... More

This is a beautiful statue that can be seen from various locations around Eureka. However, nothing is like seeing it up close.

We saw the Christ of the Ozarks from the 1886 Crescent Hotel, where we were staying. Breath taking view and we were excited to go see it up close the next day. The statue is sooo much bigger than we thought and if you never get the chance to see Christ the Redeemer in Brazil, then the Christ of the... More

If in Eureka Springs, you must drive up to see the statue up close. The white of the statue shows up brilliantly against a vivid blue sky. It is peaceful up at the statue and there are benches if one wanted to sit and pray or meditate

We visited Christ of the Ozarks one night after dinner. It was beautiful and quiet up there (expect for the noise of the Passion Play). Security was driving around so it felt safe as well. Worth the trip, and breathtaking at night!

We loved seeing the Christ of the Ozarks and the scenery and senic overlook was wonderful as well. If you are going to see the Christ of the Ozarks go ahead a get tickets to see the Great passion Play as well! You can also visit the Bible and Sacred Arts museums for free while seeing the statue!

Christ of the Ozarks statue is an icon and a must-see attraction. It's visible from long distances around the village and is really neat to see the size up close. There's a nice lookout right nearby too with a beautiful view, including a view of the Crescent Hotel.
