Holy Land Experience Will Lay Off Most Workers; Orlando Christian Experience Closing 90% of Park

The Holy Land Experience -- a Christian-themed amusement park in Orlando, Florida -- will be laying off most of its employees and shutting down 90% of the park after Easter, the Christian Post website reports today (February 21, 2020).

"Among the eliminated positions are 43 actors and musicians, 17 guest services associates, as well as numerous techs, retail employees, and food service workers," the "Orlando Sentinel" reported.

Mike Everett, general manager of The Holy Land Experience, said, "The Scriptorium, which holds rare and unique biblical artifacts, and a scale model of ancient Jerusalem and the city of David, will continue to serve as the park's main educational attractions."

The management team will be scouting out "the best and most efficient use of the property, assessing other economic opportunities, including redevelopment," Everett added.
