Testing the Options

Two members of our social media team and Tim Chaffey, the content manager for the Ark Encounter, recently sat down in Emzara’s restaurant to taste test some of the new food options at the Ark Encounter, including a bacon jam burger, chicken burrito bowl, stuffed breadsticks, maple bacon donuts, watermelon slushie, and more! Check out their thoughts below.

CEO Ken Ham also did some food tasting recently. He tried out the BBQ sundae, smoked brisket nachos, Monte Cristo sandwich, and other new treats as he walked around the Ark Encounter’s grounds. Hear what he had to say about the food he tried in this video.

How’s It Made?

One of the newest sweet treat options at the Ark Encounter is rolled ice cream! It is served in a cup or a freshly made waffle taco with toppings. Wonder what makes it different from regular ice cream? Ken Ham recently did a Facebook Live video at the Ark Encounter to show you how it’s made.
