However, some of the God-fearing people in the Bluegrass State decided it was time for a new kind of theme park to garner attention. Visitors will not find the average amusement park rides, propaganda and entertainment at this new venue.

News of this unusual theme park and the controversy it inspires has spread. The Ark Encounter is making headlines across the US, including the NYDaily and Newsweek. The new park is set to open on July 7th in Williamstown. Adult tickets will cost $40 per day, or $99 if you want to come 7 days in a row. Tickets get you into the museum, the zoo and the ark itself. Regardless of your opinion in the ark controversy, you have to admit, it is unusual to have a massive replica of Noah’s Ark in Kentucky. This one of a kind attraction will likely pull in tourism for the commonwealth, and put Williamstown in the public eye.
