Fodor's Review

Since its inception in 1968, nearly 8 million spectators have attended this larger-than-life experience, making it the most attended outdoor drama in the United States (according to the Institute of Outdoor Drama at the University of North Carolina). The performance features 170 actors and hundreds of live animals on a three-stories-tall set the size of two football fields, built into the side of a hill. Other attractions on the grounds include a sacred art museum, a Bible museum, a replica of parts of the Holy Land, and the 67-foot high statue, "Christ of the Ozarks," erected here in 1966. An all-you-can-eat buffet is also available for an extra charge. Discounts are available for groups of 15 or more.
