Since 1968, The Great Passion Play has amazed nearly 8 million visitors from across the world at this amazing amphitheater attraction! Behold as scripture comes alive in a three-story-high outdoor amphitheater the size of two football fields, setting the story of Jesus' life to a huge stage during this Passion Play Eureka Springs production. Watch in awe and reverence as Jesus gains a following before being betrayed by Judas. Grieve as Jesus gives up his life for your sins as he is crucified on the cross, and rejoice when he arises from the tomb in his holy resurrection. You can witness the story of Jesus Christ as he experiences life, performs many miracles, and spreads the word of God. A great experience for the entire family, this heartwarming play is one you must see!

Explore the culture, history, and people of ancient Middle East in the time in which Jesus was raised on this outstanding bus tour. Visit replicas of biblical scenes including the room where the Last Supper took place, and a full-sized replica of the Tabernacle. Encounter characters roaming around and hear true dialogue from the times of Moses to Christ just as if you were currently living in Biblical times. You can pet the live animals in the petting zoo, walk down the trail to the various landmarks, and interact with the exhibits. You can also walk or be shuttled to the Christ of the Ozarks: a 1500-foot statue nestled between the gorgeous Ozark mountains. This outdoor drama allows visitors of all ages to learn the epic drama and witness the greatest story ever told all brought to life before your eyes via talented actors and actresses, sound effects, and special lighting effects. Bear witness to the greatest Biblical story of all time; with over 150 elaborately costumed actors, and live birds and animals, this Eureka Springs play is sure to impress and dazzle the entire family.

"Very educational."
My wife and i spent the whole day together there and had an amazing time. We did the holy land tour, went through the gift shops and then saw the play. We also seen a few pre play shows that were awesome. Would love to go back and bring grandkids sometime. Very educational.

"It way exceeded our expectations"
We really enjoyed our trip to the passion play. It way exceeded our expectations and everything thing we did there was a good experience. The holy land tour was great all but it being really hot outside!! The pre- shows we’re really neat. My youngest loved the petting zoo and the bible museum was great. We didn’t have time to see the art museum but enjoyed seeing christ of the ozarks lit up at night. My kids ranging from age 16-age 8 said they would all love to watch the play again!!
