This year’s Holy Land Experience free day is scheduled for February 24, 2016. For one day out of the year, this Orlando theme park offers free admission into the park. They do this in order to qualify for property-tax exemption status as a religious entity under state law.
This attraction is usually less crowded than other Orlando attractions, however, on this date it will be bustling with guests. ORLANDO TOURIST TIP: Plan to arrive when the park opens at 10:00 a.m. due to possible park closures once capacity of about 2,000 has been reached (and it usually does reach capacity on Holy Land Experience free day).
Attending this park is such a unique way to experience the Bible. Not only the sights will take you over 7,000 miles away and over 2,000 years back in time, but the sounds and tastes will as well. There are shows, shopping and dining all within the theme park.
The Holy Land Experience is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m., but is closed on Sunday and Monday. Holy Land Experience is also closed on New Year’s Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. If you’d like to attend a Sunday church service, a non-denominational Christian service is offered (Trinity Christian Center) at the Theater of Life (inside the Temple building) in the center of the park. The service begins at 10:30 a.m. ORLANDO TOURIST TIP: All ages are welcome, however, they do not offer a nursery or teen/youth group.
Holy Land Experience Free Day – Save Money
If you will not be attending Holy Land Experience free day, ticket prices are $50 per adult, $35 per child (6-12) and $20 per pre-k child (3-5). If you want to see all of the shows and go through each experience thoroughly, you may want to consider a 2-day ticket ($75/$50/$35). This will allow you to see more of the theatrical presentations. ORLANDO TOURIST TIP: While all of the live entertainment is inspiring, be sure to catch “Passion of the Christ Live Drama.” It is a little lengthly, but very inspirational.
While adults may enjoy this Orlando attraction the most, there are plenty of fun things to do for kids. An entire section of the park is dedicated to youngsters called the Smile of a Child Adventure Land. In the future, a nine-hole miniature golf course will also be featured (completion date T.B.D.). Teenagers have their fun too at the JUCE Explodes Youth Center where at certain times throughout the day they can sing karaoke, participate in a praise dance-off and more.
Enjoy the Holy Land Experience free day, located just off Interstate-4 at 4655 Vineland Road, Orlando, FL 32811. For more information call 407-872-2272, or go to holylandexperience.com. Since the day is free, why not consider a small donation while you are there? I’m sure you will feel blessed!
