Ark Encounter: Noah’s Ark takes shape in Kentucky

Fox News recently reported that the Ark Encounter is under construction near Williamstown, Kentucky, after several years of delays. The project seeks to create a biblically accurate recreation of Noah’s Ark. Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis is the man behind the project.

Information below is from the Ark Encounter website:

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.

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.

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

We also plan 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.
