There is also a great cafeteria and great shops on the grounds. I have been twice. Enjoy!
  • We had a great time. The play has as many as 100 cast members on stage at one time. There is many things to do at this location. Also a restaurant is on site. Interesting points: authentic Israel bomb shelter on display as well as a piece of the Berlin wall and the tallest statue of Jesus in North America.
