A Christian-based theme park in Orlando, Florida, has closed and looks sets to be repurposed as a health care facility.
New Christian Daily reports The Holy Land Experience has been sold by the Trinity Broadcasting Network to a Seventh-day Adventist health care company.
The park which re-created the architecture and themes of Jerusalem in 1st-century Judea, has suffered a sharp decline revenue in recent years.
Earlier this year, it announced it was laying off 118 employees and axing all theatrical productions and other entertainment.
Trinity Broadcasting had planned to upgrade the park and use the property to build a Central Florida broadcasting facility and a movie studio to produce Christian films.
But despite adding church services and new children’s activities, it failed to attract sufficient visitors to make the venture viable, especially during the pandemic.
There is no indication the Adventists are interested in attempting to create their own version of a theme park.
