The F/X Theater

This popular theater truly gives you a movie experience unlike any other, and is set apart from your IMAX or 3-D movie experience. As you step into the theater, you will find a gorgeous set featuring the aesthetic appeal of actual barn siding coupled with modern features like five projection screens, theatrical lighting, 4-D sound imagery, ghosting effects, and a range of other special effects. At the theater, you can learn more about the Amish way of life and their efforts to preserve their culture and traditions through a production of "Jacob's Choice". This story takes you on an emotional journey inside a real Amish family as their struggle to preserve over four hundred years of tradition in the face of the intrusions of the modern way of life.

The Amish Experience Theater and Country Homestead Tour Combo - Bird-in-Hand, PA
Loved everything about this amish experience!The film,jacobs choice,gave an inside look into the life of an amish family & the human decisions that they are faced with.It also gave a historical back round ,which was very interesting.The film was shown in a barn setting,which also added to the experience.The film was then followed by a guided tour of the actual homestead.The tour guide was very informative.I suggest this experience to anyone!It really makes you think about the world we live in.There was also a fantastic gift shop on the premises,along with a couple amish-run stores.We also ate at the restaurant on the premises.If you decide to eat there,choose the family style sit down meal over choosing the menu.You'll be able to try all the varieties of food and will meet some really interesting people.We ended up with some new friends.There is also a buggy ride available on the premises.That was also a worthwhile trip.It took you right onto an amish farm.Let's me just put it this way,we were thinking we would be done with this experience in a couple hours.Well,we were there for 6 hours!We don't regret a thing!

The Amish Experience Theater & Country Homestead Combo Tour
The entire tour was very educational. Our tour guide was great! Those straight back bench seats in the theater gotta go! You are sitting on a downward angle with no place for your body to go. I felt very uncomfortable!

The Amish Experience Theater & Country Homestead Combo Tour
This tour was very enjoyable and the movie was really educational. I knew that amish teens could go out in the world, but not for that long. The only way it would have been better is that if the homestead tour had been of an actual amish home and school. It was really nice, too, that you could catch a buggy tour right down the street and our guide was very knowledgeable. I would definitely go here again!
