  • We visit every year... It's gotten so much better! Most beautiful place to visit in Gatlinburg. It's a definite must see,. You will experience such a blessing as you witness the birth of our Savior to His Ascension...to sitting in the gardens and rejoicing in the Lord..
  • Scenes depicting life of Jesus from birth to ascension and nice garden to sit in and reflect afterwards. Very moving. Kept my 7 year old's attention but not my 4 year old.
  • I think it was 2 years ago I visited. But I'm back in the area now w some friends and this is my suggested place to stop. If we don't make it this trip then it will be August. I love it, especially the last scene of the story!!!
  • Such a great experience. Very friendly staff. I wish there were more of these to visit.
  • Awesome place to learn about Christ from birth to ascended into heaven
