Modern replica of Noah’s Ark is currently under construction. The modern day replica of Noah’s Ark will be placed in a US amusement park.
Inside the ark will be several exhibits featuring Noah and his family, along with information to help the public understand the Bible.
The full-sized wooden replica of the ship from the biblical story of Noah and the Great Flood is to become the main attraction at a unique US amusement park set to open in July.
Ken Ham, president and chief executive of Answers in Genesis, the Christian organisation behind the Noah’s Ark-themed amusement park, The Ark Encounter, in Kentucky, said: “We want to challenge people that Noah wasn’t some primitive brute. He was very intelligent.
The ark, which is nearing completion, will be 510 foot long and stand 80 feet high, and will be able to encounter 16,000 guests per day.
To build the full replica of Noah’s Ark, 3.3 million feet of wooden boards will be used, not counting exhibits inside.
Other plans to be completed include to build a Walled City from the Tower of Babel, a first-century Middle Eastern village, as well as a walk-through aviary and a large petting zoo.
The attraction is designed to be family friendly, historically authentic, and environmentally friendly, and will be one of the largest green construction projects in the US.
