What to know before you visit
Since the Ark Encounter opened in 2016, we’ve added a host of new features. And these upgrades continue, including our latest addition—a brand-new, state-of-the-art children’s area! Learn more about this family-friendly area and watch the official opening below.
This cutting-edge recreational area, which is located near the Village Market, has been specially designed for children of all abilities. This means it’s inclusive of children with various disabilities. We’re excited that all children will now have yet another activity to enjoy during their visit—and their parents and grandparents can join the fun too!
Check out these photos to see what your children can now enjoy in this exciting family-friendly area.
On Saturday, June 1, 2019, we officially opened the playground at the Ark Encounter for our guests to enjoy. You can watch the livestream with Ken Ham, our CEO, in the video below.
Start planning your trip to the Ark Encounter today and be sure to head to the playground so your children—and you—can experience our latest addition. Share your favorite photos of your visit with us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter using #arkencounter!
