Land Purchased

by Ark Encounter on April 13, 2012

Passing another significant milestone, the Ark Encounter, LLC, closed recently on the last and largest piece of land for its planned development on an 800-acre site in Williamstown, KY, off Interstate 75 (south of Cincinnati). Under the direction of Answers in Genesis (AiG), a full-scale Noah’s Ark will be constructed as the featured attraction at the Ark Encounter. Research indicates the Ark Encounter will draw well over a million people in its first year.

In addition, the completion of complex engineering and architectural work on the Ark structure has allowed for significantly greater guest capacity inside the Ark than originally anticipated. This finding has eliminated the need to build additional biblical attractions simultaneously to accommodate the projected crowds.
