"Hidden treasure"
Reviewed October, 2015
Three of us traveled to Pigeon Forge area, Went on line prior and found Christ in the Smokies and purchased the tickets to surprise the other two. We loved it. The characters were so realistic, made you feel like you were a part of the scene. Beautiful portrayal of each event. This little hidden treasure is worth the visit, we now tell everyone we know to stop by. Most that has travel there for years did not even realize it was there.
Tip: You can purchase tickets on line and save. Great parking after you visit,you can walk to all the other attraction and park free.

"Visiting Christ in the Smokies"
Reviewed July, 2015
I visited Christus Gardens in the early 70's with my children and wanted to relive the experience. It was better now than then. With each scene, My wife and I were taken back into time. It was breathtaking. The people in the scenes looked as real as if we were talking with them. It certainly made me glad to call myself Christian after my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. My plans are to go back next year for another visit. If you are going to Gatlinburg, stop in. One of the best attractions in town.

This was by far the highlight of my trip. It kept to the scriptures and if you're looking for something spiritual to do in the area, this is a Do Not Miss. It was also affordable

We thoroughly enjoyed the visit here. It is located right behind the Gatlinburg Inn, where we stayed. It is a self-guided tour. You go into one room and the wax figures seem real and there is a story in each room. When it's over, the lights fade out, the door opens and you go into the next room. It was a wonderful experience. I would love to go through there again.

Been in the area many times but hadn't visited until today. Very impressed with the life like statues in all the scenes. Goes through the entire life of Christ through him ascending to Heaven accompanied with corresponding verses. Perfect for both adults and children. Very reasonably priced.

I went once when I was there but did not get to enjoy it like I wanted to because I was with a group. If you are a religious per son you should go. Even if you are not a religious you should go. The figures are so life like and you realy get an idea of Christ life.
