  • A wonderful stop after the Holy Land tour and museums. So beautiful! The views show off God's creation.  more »
  • The up close and personal feel you get is amazing. Started lightning and wondered how it doesnt get struck. The only bad thing was that the time we were there was the day the Passion Play is off.  more »

  • If you're a Christian and/or you enjoy history this is worth the visit! I absolutely loved the Bible museum and they have an actual piece of the Berlin Wall which is very moving. The holy Land tour includes acute heading to call Noah's Ark. History Museum is also worth the visit. Christ of the Ozarks is obviously a great photo op. We visited on a hot day, so that impacted how much of touring we were up to, and I would love to visit the Passion Play as the amphitheatre looked fantastic for that dramatization, but not on a hot day. Next time Eureka!
  • The drive up to Christ of the Ozarks is incredible. Was slightly deceived when viewing the sculpture in person since I imagined it to be much taller. When you see it from the observation tower by the Razorback Gift Shop it seems as though it would be at least 100' tall. Still a very cool place to visit. Would recommend stopping at Magnetic Spring on the way up or on the way back.
