World's Strangest Theme Parks

Holy Land Experience, Orlando, Florida

Philippe Lissac/Corbis

Holy Land Experience, Orlando, FL

Nothing against religious reenactments, but when a blood-smeared Jesus sings into his head-mike from the cross, things start to get creepy. This park (which lies just 11 miles from Disney) features Celebrate Jesus Karaoke, Caucasian actors playing Middle Eastern street vendors, and colorful dancing fountains. Profiled in the Bill Maher documentary Religulous, it draws thousands of people every year.

Best of the Strange: Tourists can share in the Last Supper with Jesus and his disciples.
