Do you think the closing of the Passion Play will have a dramatic impact on the local economy?

Wally Burns

"When I first moved here in 2000, Passion Play Road was always jammed with traffic. Not so much in recent years."

Michael Harris

Independent Operator

"I know a lot of people do come here just for that. But I don't think it'll cripple the economy."

"Not really. I've lived here 18 years and watched it decline the whole time. I do hope they can find a fantastic use for the space, though!"

Rick German

Bunch's Regular

"No. I think they should put in a water park over there. Sea World of Eureka Springs."

Kathryn Parker

"I Make People Happy"

"I believe it will, because we get so many tourists through here that are just here to see the play."

Regina Dupwe

Hostess at Myrtie Mae's

"Yes. It's been here a long time and draws crowds."

  • I agree with Rick German. A playground is what this town needs, now that the Passion Play is folded. And as to that, how about ripping out the concrete and pushing over the "Big Jesus" and creating a great playground, surrounded by very nice homes. More tax revenue is that our town needs.

  • I would hope that whatever it is to become, it benefits people from all walks of life, and just those of religion.

  • If the Eureka residents would not support the Play, they will acquire visitors more to their liking, and they will be more like the residents themselves.....which may not be the best for the city. Examine yourselves in this regard.
