There are a lot of weird and unusual theme parks in the world, but the Holy Land Experience takes the cake. Like the name says, you'll find yourself in a replica of Jerusalem, and observe the last days of Jesus Christ.

The reenactment of Jesus's tortures are not exactly fun for everyone, but there actually are rather educational activities in the park as well, for example visiting the Scriptorium, a collection of rare manuscripts and scrolls.

The themed exhibits are interesting, but the theme park section is bordering on downright disturbing.

4655 Vineland Rd, Orlando, FL 32811, USA

As all of these are expanded on such a large area you definitely need a car, but if you are [...]
