The Prince of Peace Memorial

Attractions List
Poster Gallery

The Prince of Peace Memorial told the story of the life of Jesus in a series of static carved dioramas -- sort of a Christmas manger scene that didn't know when to stop. Sculptor Paul Cunningham devoted much of his life to the exhibit's creation, building twelve scenes covering the entire life of Christ. Each scene was housed in its own "chapel" and accompanied by appropriate lighting effects and music. All this for only 75 cents (1967 admission price).

With a vaguely church like A-frame entrance, it shared a parking lot and tourist traffic with Silver Springs, near where the Wild Waters Waterpark is today. Now you can no longer see Jesus walk on water here -- but you can slide down and splash into it.
