We’re so excited that our one-of-a-kind carousel is now open at the Ark Encounter! Families love riding the unique animals (representing various kinds featured in the exhibits inside our life-size Noah’s Ark) and reading the accompanying teaching signage. It’s a wonderful addition to our family playground area.
As you can see from these photos, the custom Italian-made carousel is unique:
Our carousel is housed inside a special building, allowing it to run all year. It’s built flush with the floor to be more accessible (there is even a place for a wheelchair to attach).
Carousel rides are included with Ark Encounter admission and are open to all guests (there are minimum weight and age requirements—and you must be two years and older to conform to state and manufacturer regulations).
We’re so thankful that kids can now enjoy this carousel! Plan a visit to the Ark Encounter and experience the Ark with three decks of exhibits, Ararat Ridge Zoo, presentations and concerts in the Answers Center, a state-of-the-art playground, and so much more. And remember, kids 10 and under enjoy free admission for all of 2022.
