My Trip to the Tierra Santa Biblical Theme Park in Buenos Aires, Argentina

February 1, 2009

I’m now safely back in New York and recovered from food poisoning. In fact, while still in Argentina, I managed to recover sufficiently to go on a field trip to Tierra Santa, Argentina’s Biblical theme park!

The park promised re-enactments of the Creation and the Last Supper, as well as the world’s largest animatronic Nativity in the world, and a 36-foot-tall animatronic Jesus that rises up out of a hill to the tune of the Hallelujah Chorus. I simply had to go.

I didn’t catch what figure this was, but I liked the “No Smoking” sign. This is in the tunnel that leads to the world’s largest animated Nativity scene, also featuring a laser light show. For those who feel that Chuck E. Cheese should be more spiritual.

Maria (remember, God speaks Spanish here) being informed that hers is the Chosen Uterus.

This way to La Creacion!



Here is a video of La Creacion! I like the part when the giraffe rolls in on a platform.

This is a view of Adam and Eve in La Creacion! Dios dijo “EXISTO!”

It was not totally clear why there was a Gandhi exhibit.

I tried to pose as a Roman centurion, but it was too bright for me to keep my eyes open.



This is the theme park’s 36 foot tall animatronic Jesus. He rises, turns about 70 degrees, supinates his palms, and blinks.

    Did my sarcasm drip insufficiently?

    No, more like a leaky faucet.

    I love your outfit, you look great in pink. Were you commemorating Edgar Allen Poe’s birth January 19th, 200 years ago? I was hooked on Poe way back in school……………………..He sat behind me in English class. (:
