Shuttle Bus Rides at the Ark Encounter

by Ark Encounter on July 19, 2016

The Ark Encounter shuttle buses have not slowed down since finishing a cross-country voyage to the site. Since our July 7 opening, each bus has stayed busy taking thousands of visitors between the parking lot and the Ark.

Buses Ready for Guests

The shuttle buses are one of the first things you will encounter during your visit. The buses pick you up at our ticket booths, which are located in our 4,000-space parking lot, and take you to the drop-off circle in front of the guest services building and the lake upon arrival at the Ark site.

You may be wondering why we need the shuttle buses. The parking lot sits one mile from the Ark Encounter site. So we built a road specifically for our shuttle buses since personal cars are not allowed to access this route.

Guests Depart Buses

We can’t wait to watch you get your first up-close look at the Ark as you round the final curve along the shuttle route. Even though you are a few hundred yards from the Ark at this point, the structure still appears extraordinarily massive.

Don’t forget to buy your tickets now and visit before August 15 to take advantage of our 40 Days and 40 Nights promotion. During this time, our hours will be 9 a.m. until midnight.
