The Christ of the Ozarks is on the grounds of the Great Passion Play. I appreciated learning the history behind this site and enjoyed the time we spent here. Allow hours to explore it all and be sure to catch the Passion Play while you are here!

If you are going during a time when you are not seeing the Passion Play (which I did not see and cannot review), then this is a giant statue of an extremely bored looking Jesus. It is really big....and that is really it. It is really not well crafted at all, I made the comment about his hair looking like... More

Great little stop by to kill time while in town for the weekend. We didn't stay long because it was rainy and cold, but I'm glad we stopped. I'm sure it's even better at night when it's lit up and during special events. We were just there on a random Saturday when the gates were open and drove through.

This is an awesome and beautiful sight. Worth the drive to see. There is a pathway that is easy to walk around.

Gorgeous statue! Largest one of Christ in all of North America. It does show some damage to it up close and I can't imagine what it takes to maintain it, but it is still beautiful. You can see how large it is and know our God is a big God- even bigger than this statue.

We didnt see the play but walked back to the statue. Very neat thing to see. Not too far from town. We went in off season so there was only one other couple there.

My husband and I took our daughter here on her first visit to Eureka Springs, I knew she would enjoy it. It was raining but it didn't stop us from getting out with our umbrellas and making the walk around this statue. My daughter love it, she loved the size and the atmosphere and the fact that you can see... More

I would not bring young children here. The huge statue, with its outspread arms, dead eyes, and mouth set in an expression of boredom and contempt, comes across like a vengeful ghost. If it could move, it looks as though it would hunt you down and step on you. It’s hardly a comforting sight for visitors of any age. Even... More
