What is the Ark Encounter?

The Ark Encounter is a one-of-a-kind historically themed attraction. In an entertaining, educational, and immersive way, it presents a number of historical events centered on a full-size, all-wood Ark, which should become the largest timber-frame structure in the USA.

It is designed to be family oriented, historically authentic, and environmentally friendly.

The plans also call for the Ark Encounter to eventually include daily live mammal and bird shows, an extensive interactive children's area, live entertainment, and many themed restaurants, creative food outposts, and shopping.

The Ark Encounter will be one of the largest "green" construction projects in the country, taking advantage of the latest environmental technologies to be good stewards of creation.

The $150 million creationism-themed amusement park's main feature is an ark built to the dimensions specified in the Bible. Additional future phases for the attraction include a Walled City, the Tower of Babel, a first-century Middle Eastern village, a journey in history from Abraham to the parting of the Red Sea, a walk-through aviary, an expanded large petting zoo, and so on.

The park will be built by a for-profit group called Ark Encounter LLC in conjunction with Answers in Genesis, an apologetics ministry most famous for its Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky. The Creation Museum, opened in May 2007, and requires all employees to sign a statement affirming they are Christians, a requirement that may be extended to Ark Encounter.

The Ark Encounter website states the park will be built by Ark Encounter LLC, however, the Arc structure itself will be funded through donations. The website gives supporters the opportunity to donate by sponsoring actual pieces that will be used to build the ark. Fans can donate $100 to sponsor a peg for the ark; $1,000 for a plank, or $5,000 for a beam.

According to Forbes, Mike Zovath, co-founder of Answers in Genesis, expects the park will draw around 1.6 million visitors a year.

"he mission of the project, Zovath said, is to lend credence to the biblical account of a catastrophic flood and to dispel doubts that Noah could have fit two of every kind of animal onto a 500-foot-long ark," wrote Forbes.

The Ark Encounter is scheduled to open in August 2016.
