This was worth seeing. The was figures were so life like. The narration was great from the birth of Christ to his ascending into the clouds. It felt so real and a peaceful experience. All ages should see this.

First, the experience was nice. However, they could stand to update it. The staff wasn't very friendly. Worth a one time visit.
