This will lead you to the live portrayal of Jesus attending his Last Supper with his disciples in a recreation of The Upper Room. At that point, the experience will end inside a theater to view an emotional video portraying Jesus being brutally led and bound to the cross, his death and his resurrection three days later.
Lane said to go through the entire experience will take about two hours. She said watching the movie will require parental guidance for children.
“It is realistic,” she said. “When you show the crucifixion, there are some parts parents may not want little ones to see, but it is short, like a 5-minute deal.”
The video was filmed on site several years ago. Lane said incorporating the movie into the experience was necessary because recreating the crucifixion live would be too difficult; but it had to be part of the experience.
“There are some great actors, and it portrays a true crucifixion scene,” Lane said. “It also explains more about the Passover, as well, something we still celebrate today. We want people to experience it like they are here, back in time.”
There is also a marketplace, where food and concessions from Taco Villa and Texas Burger will be sold and where people can sit and rest if they wish.
