The Ark Encounter is a one-of-a-kind historically themed attraction.  In an entertaining, educational and immersive way, it presents a number of historical events centered on a full-size, all-wood Ark, which should become the largest timber-frame structure in USA.  The Ark Encouter began construction in 2014 and opened to the public on July 7, 2016.

Additional future phases for the attraction include a Walled City, the Tower of Babel, a first-century Middle Eastern village, a journey in history form Abraham to the parting of the Red Sea, a walk-through aviary, an expanded large petting zoo and so on.

It is designed to be family oriented, historically authentic and environmentally friendly.

It is also planned for the Ark Encounter to eventually include daily live mammal and bird shows, an extensive interactive children's area, live entertainment, many themed restaurants, creative food outposts and shopping.  The Ark Encounter will be one of the largest "green" construction projects in the country, taking advantage of the latest environmental technologies to be good stewards of creation.
