What to know before you visit
All across the country, students are gearing up for spring break. If you’re looking for a unique family vacation that will equip your family with a solid biblical foundation, consider visiting the life-size Noah’s ark at the Ark Encounter for your spring break.
The Ark Encounter is located in a prime Northern Kentucky area within a short drive from cities like Cincinnati, Lexington, and Indianapolis. From museums to a horse park, from nature-themed locales to faith-affirming attractions, the tri-state has plenty to offer to both kids and adults.
And we are thrilled to announce a brand-new pricing option with vacation bundles that will allow you to more easily plan your extended vacation in Northern Kentucky. See what you receive with these new plans below!
We are now offering an unlimited 7-day pass option for families called the “Family Voyage.” This multi-day pass allows a family, defined as immediate family members (parent/legal guardian) and their dependent children 18 and under, to enjoy unlimited admission to both the Ark Encounter and our sister attraction, the Creation Museum, for seven consecutive days.
Your pass also includes these additional perks: free, unlimited “in and out” parking at both attractions during the seven consecutive days, one child (age 12 or younger) eats free at either attraction with one adult meal purchase (up to two children free), 10% off retail at either attraction*, and a souvenir entrance card for each member of your family.
We also are offering a “Married Couples Getaway” and “Single Adventure” multi-day pass for married couples or individuals. These passes include everything described above, except for a free child’s meal. These multi-day passes are a wonderful way of exploring everything the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter have to offer at your leisure since you can return as many times as you would like over the seven consecutive days.
When you visit the Ark Encounter, you’ll get answers to questions about the global flood, Noah, the animals on the ark, and more! Be sure to visit the Ararat Ridge Zoo, located behind the life-size Noah’s ark, and grab a bite to eat at Emzara’s Buffet or the Village Market.
At the Creation Museum, located 45 minutes north of the Ark, take a walk through the Seven C’s of History and immerse yourself in Genesis chapters 1–11. Enjoy a stroll through the beautiful botanical gardens and get up close to the animals at the Eden Animal Experience. And don’t forget to take advantage of the opportunity to participate in our free workshops that will help you explore God’s creation in an exciting way while making great memories.
As we mentioned earlier, our new vacation bundles provide you with a 7-day pass for both attractions, which gives you more time to explore all that the Northern Kentucky area has to offer.
