Life-Sized Noah's Ark Revealed to Public in Kentucky
A Bible story comes to life with the resurrection of a massive ark.
Visitors gather outside Ark Encounter, a $100 million, 510-foot-long re-creation of Noah's Ark in Williamstown Kentucky, on Tuesday, July 5. Ark Encounter is the brainchild of Australian-born creationist Ken Ham. It was built with the help of state tax incentives and the sale of $62 million in junk bonds.
A visitor passes a diorama of Noah and his family praying inside the Ark Encounter theme park during a media preview day in Williamstown, Ky. The long-awaited theme park based on the story of a man who got a warning from God about a worldwide flood will debut in central Kentucky this Thursday. The Christian group behind the wooden ark says it will demonstrate that the stories of the Bible are true.
