Very Interesting

Have been here a few times over the years. The shows are professionally done and the park is very clean and friendly.

We spent a wonderful day at the HLE. Really wish I could have stayed in Orlando for two days.My husband and I enjoyed everything they had to offer. We were especially struck by the cleanliness and beauty of the place. God's presence is abundantly made known. The shows are top notch and the staff are terrific. The Scriptorium was an... More

We enjoyed the holy land experience. It was a bit pricey. The shows were excellent. The best part was the scriptorium. Seeing ancient writings and text up through more recent history was amazing. We also enjoyed seeing the life sized replica of the tabernacle. The food choices weren't that great. They did have bagged lunches from chick-fil-a but those were... More

We spent a great day with Jesus at the Holy Land starting with the sermon on the mount and ending with His glorious resurrection. If you've ever wanted to visit the actual Holy Land but can't get across the ocean be sure to visit this site. It is at times a very moving experience and hearing Jesus actually speak, you... More

It was a cold day in Orlando but the spirit of the Lord warmed our hearts. All the shows have now been moved indoors with theater seating (no more benches and bleachers). This will be good for both cold and especially hot days. It is a wonderful venue ... you have to get there early and follow the timeline for... More

We went every year for the first three years or so. We have not been since and friends wanted to go. It lost its authenticity, charm and feeling of really being in the Middle East. Gaudy displays that should be edited out. You will enter and walk immediately into a store and that sets the tone. Whoever is in charge... More

This place is very very small. A lot of concrete buildings with flashy gold. A lot of concrete animals every where. Every turn their is a cardboard statue of either an angel or Tammy Baker. We watched one show and left. It was very childish and immature. Not a replica of Jesus nor his home town. Even the wax museum... More

The Holy Land Experience was a pleasant day spent with family, This is not an amusement park. there are no rides. Really all that is offered are shows. The shows are only on once a day. They depict events that happened in the Bible. We enjoyed the shows, but all day of shows gets a little long. The staff was... More
