The Holy Land Experience is a 15-acre faith-based family theme park in Orlando, Florida owned and operated since 2007 by the world’s largest religious broadcaster, Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN). It features attractions and interactive exhibits like Smile of a Child Adventure Land, The Scriptorium research library and museum, a “breathtaking, inspirational water show” called the Crystal Living Waters and much more.
At their Jerusalem Street Market, “you will travel back in time to an ancient land that is 2000 years old and 7000 miles away!” and at Calvary’s Garden Tomb, you can spend time “resting, praying, or reflecting on the meaning and significance of the empty tomb”. To experience “first century shopping”, head on over to The Old Scroll Shop. There are even live theatrical performances. It’s almost like a modern day Bible Storyland but with less rides.
Information about the park from a recent press release:
“Everyone wants to visit Israel and the Holy Land, to walk where Jesus walked and see where He ministered to the multitudes,” said Mike Everett, General Manager of Holy Land Experience. “But time and cost can prevent many from making this once-in-a-lifetime trip. We’ve created the Holy Land Experience to give people a very affordable opportunity to experience the beauty and wonder of the Holy Land right here at home.”
…Holy Land Experience is nothing less than a living, interactive faith experience that transports visitors back thousands of years to experience the sights, sounds, smells, tastes, historical time frames—and the impacting truths—of the Bible.
