The Holy Land Experience, an Orlando amusement park that doesn't pay taxes because of a religion-related loophole, is having another free admission day this Wednesday.

Normally admission is $50, but this Wednesday, Oct. 25, guests can enter the theme park free of charge from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Keep in mind free admission and free parking is only available until the park hits capacity.

This is a good time to remind everyone that the Holy Land Experience, which is owned by Trinity Broadcasting Network, is required by law to have at least one free day a year after former Florida governor Jeb Bush signed a law in 2006 stating the park qualifies as tax exempt because they display biblical images.

Since 2006, the amusement park has skipped out of paying at least $2.2 million in property taxes.

Occasionally the park does more than one free day a year, and so this actually will be the second free day for 2017. The last one was back in January.
