It was nice, but I didn't feel the spiritual connection, I thought / heard I would feel. The different viewing areas was extremely hot, not enough water in the different locations. It felt as if it was more entertaining/entertainment/ a show. We had teenagers sitting behind us in the huge auditorium during one of the shows talking loud and cursing.... More

We came here 12 years ago and were blown away by the atmosphere, the dramas enacted in the open, among the people, the authenticity of the Scriptorium and the Jerusalem model and "tour". Now there is way too much gold paint, mirrors that confuse you such that it took 10 mins to find an exit from the theatre, hyped up... More

It was very entertaining, and that is what it is entertaining. I expected it to be a history of the Christian faith, more down to earth. It was like watching a rerun of Steve Martin in Leap of Faith when the actor portraying Jesus went into the audience to heal people. What's with the restrooms? ??

when we first arrived I was taken aback by the "glitz and bling', but after seeing the productions and feeling the anointing on the presentations I realized that heaven that they portray is all glitz and bling and as long as the Spirit of God is there it is on target.

We wished we had visited before the TBN takeover of this attraction. Would have been interesting to see the difference beforehand. We highly enjoyed the Scriptorium, Jerusalem model and explanation/question time and the Communion in the Upper Room. The Scriptorium is presented very creatively. Drama presentations were extensive, highly costumed & staged but, in our opinion, tended to lean a... More

I was really disturbed by one of the plays we saw at the Holy Land Experience (Legna). When I saw a black cast member coming out dressed as an angel playing a comic relief character (like a minstrel show character), I was appalled. I have not read anywhere in the Bible where this type of display took place. I feel... More

This was our first trip to FL by ourselves - could see this Park from I-4, so looked on my IPhone for directions and price. Decided we'd take the whole day on Wed to come and enjoy. We were not disappointed - Mary Magdalene greeted us and said to enjoy yourselves. We love the characters walking around - met Jesus... More

I expected more learning opportunities. Attempted one live drama, but a woman would not move her legs so I could slip in beyond her so I left. The person I was with was in a wheelchair and was to sit behind me alone. The 55 minute presentation in the Scriptorium was informative as was the 20 minute presentation in the... More

if you are a big fan of the Trinity Broadcasting network's style and message, then you will probably love this park associated with TBN. However, if you find this network too glitzy, gaudy, prosperity-based, and non-authentic, then you will not enjoy the park. We heard the Scriptorium was worth seeing, but were told at the entrance that we had to... More
