The Ark Encounter, owned and operated by Answers in Genesis (AiG), welcomes you to our media page. This online resource for credentialed media and Ark Encounter supporters offers quick information about phase one ($100 million) of this historical theme park, with a 510-foot-long Ark as the centerpiece.
Opened July 7, 2016, the Ark Encounter is located right off exit 154 in Williamstown, Kentucky, half way between Cincinnati, Ohio and Lexington, Kentucky. The Ark is 40 miles from its popular sister attraction, the Creation Museum.
