The Holy Land Experience, the Bible-based theme park, has been closed since last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It reopened for two days in April for free admission days, which has offered in the past to remain exempt from property taxes.
Prior to the pandemic closure, the attraction scaled back on a number of offerings in an attempt to shift its focus away from entertainment and back to “its original plan and function.” It also laid off 118 employees, including actors, musicians and guest service associates.
