A giant Noah’s Ark theme park exists in Kentucky with a ton of cool attractions inside

Even non-religious people should see all of the things that this 1:1 scale Noah’s Ark contains.
Noah’s Ark is one of the most widely known bible stories.
People across the world are familiar with the image of the animals walking two by two to be saved from the flood.
Many people say that a vessel such as Noah’s Ark could never have existed. But the truth is that today a version of it does exist.
A theme park in Kentucky is housed inside an ark that follows the exact dimensions that the Bible’s book of Genesis lays out for the ship.
Ark Encounter’s Ark is 510 feet long, 85 feet wide and 51 feet high. Overall that makes up 75,000 square feet of space. In fact, it’s “the largest timber-frame structure in the world.”
Its construction was incredibly complex. It began in 2014 and was completed in 2016. With a turnaround time like that, it’s lucky the builders weren’t up against a biblical flood!
This huge replica sits not in the water but on dry land in Williamstown, Northern Kentucky.
Inside this space may not be two of every animal, but there are some impressive things.
The interior is divided into three decks.
On these decks are many exhibits. One is dedicated to Noah and the seven family members traveled with him, according to the Bible, on the Ark.
It shows their living quarters, their belongings and their clothing.
Another exhibit shows people what the world was like before the flood happened.
Some space is filled with an exhibit that details all of the flood legends across the world and how they corroborate with the Ark story in the Bible.
And last but certainly not least, there’s a zoo with many exotic live animals from across the world.
There are also lifelike sculptures that represent animals that the exhibit can’t maintain.
The real and fake animals are kept in realistic wooden cages that would be perfectly suitable for keeping animals in for 40 days and 40 nights.
But there’s more to the theme park than just the Ark (although the word “just” really doesn’t seem to apply to this structure!)
Next to the Ark is a restaurant that is one of the biggest in America.
There’s also an outdoor zoo.
And for people that want to experience some thrills, then there’re also extreme ziplines that extend up to 2,000 feet across a valley.
These also go to heights of 17 stories! People can zip along at speeds of 50 miles per hour.
But it isn’t cheap to see all of this stuff. On top of the journey to Kentucky, a one day ticket costs $48 for an adult.
For many people, the journey and the high ticket prices are worth it, though. Everyone that visits the Ark is always astounded by just how big it is in person.
So Disneyland has rollercoasters, characters walking around and impressive parades, but it doesn’t have the stuff that Ark Encounter has!
Some people may complain that this Ark is giving an unrealistic impression of history.
But does it really matter? For people that want to reaffirm their faith, it’s there.
And for people that want to walk around in a gigantic wooden ark, it’s there.
