The Amish Experience Theater (shows on the hour): Witness "Jacob's Choice," and join him and the Fisher family's quest to discover what it means to be Amish in this emotional story of his struggle between family, faith, and community versus the allure of life in the outside world. You'll be moved and thrilled as you experience 400 years of Amish history through Disney-like effects, including wind, rain and fire, enhanced ghostly imagery, with five screens and four-dimensional sound.
The Amish Country Homestead & Schoolroom (45 minutes, tours hourly): The only Amish house tour officially designated a Heritage Site by Lancaster County. Your guided tour of this 9-room house explains Amish dress and what life is like without electricity. We unravel some of the riddles of Amish life, such as why a bottled gas refrigerator may be used, but not an electric one. Included is the Fisher Amish schoolroom, furnished and decorated authentically with the guidance of an Amish schoolteacher.
