Holy Land Experience

Holy Land Experience in Orlando, Florida, sits in the shadows of some of the world's most famous theme parks, but visitors expecting hair-raising rollercoasters may be disappointed. Holy Land is more of an outdoor museum than an amusement park, featuring exhibits such as the Jerusalem Street Market, which recreates what the holy city was like 2,000 years ago. For the less faint of heart, you can even watch a bloody recreation of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Sounds fun, right? Bought by Trinity Broadcast Network a few years ago, the Christian media company has big ambitions for the little park, hoping that it will serve as a staging ground for TV shows or concerts for the network. As Trinity Chief of Staff Paul Crouch says, "[It's] a faith based version of Universal Studios."
