Ark Encounter is a world-class theme park featuring the most authentic full-size replica of Noah’s Ark in the world. It was opened in July 2016 in Williamstown, Kentucky, as a companion site to the Creation Museum, both of which are overseen by Answers in Genesis.
Ken Ham, the President of Answers in Genesis said that the Ark Encounter has “experienced another increase in yearly attendance.”
“I’m very pleased to report that while most attractions see their best attendance in year one and then experience a drop-off, we’ve seen the opposite,” said Ham.
The Young Earth Creationism group said the Kentucky-based Ark Encounter was making changes to its site. It includes the creation of a 2,500-seat auditorium with a 70-foot-long LED screen, expanding the size of the Ararat Ridge Zoo, and opening a larger family play space.
“Built by Playground Equipment Services, this family play area is accessible by all children and adults. Parents and grandparents are encouraged to have fun with their kids as a family activity. This cutting-edge playground has been specially designed for children of all abilities”, said Answers in Genesis.
