great article. It seems like this place has had Financial issues since it’s been open. I’m sure someone will come in and rescue it again.I knew Holy Land is not doing well, but the announcement they're discontinuing their shows as off April 19th is kind of surprising. I've never been, but aside from shows I don't think there was much to do there:
In a major overhaul, Orlando's Holy Land Experience will end all theatrical productions | Blogs
I guess if anyone wants to experience Holy Land they need to get there ASAP...
Whatever will become of the Noah’s Ark claw machine and cardboard standee Jesuses?
With a sale possible, biblical theme park Holy Land may be nearing the end of its 19-year history in OrlandoThe end of the Holy Land Experience is imminent. The biblical theme park is for sale and ending all stage shows. About 118 employees will be laid off on April 18.www.orlandosentinel.com
I missed this but it looks like the park probably won't reopen.
I went there once to cover their "free day/tax break" for News13. I am not very spiritual and Evangelicals, in general, seem pretty out there to me. So I went in expecting the worst (I visited Jim & Tammy Faye Baker's Heritage USA once just for chits & giggles). Holy Land is actually tastefully done, and very limited on the proselytizing. I was impressed.Heck, I thought that place closed years ago . Did anyone actually know anyone that really admitted to going there?
I went there on Free Tax day. I thought it was the tackiest thing I've ever witnesseed. They had a food stand called "The Last Snack". The shows were high caliber though. And the Scriptitoriam walk through attraction was pretty cool. It had an animatronic and fiber-optic lighting effects.Heck, I thought that place closed years ago . Did anyone actually know anyone that really admitted to going there?
This is why we like $8000 WDI signage.I've gone--twice in fact. And I'm an atheist. But I was fascinated to know what it was like. I wasn't disappointed with a this sign at the holiday season. Personally, even if you are religious, it somehow seems a bit tacky to praise the Lord just for a 50% off sale on tchotchkes.
