Developers say the funding is in place to build phase one of a replica of Noah's Ark in Williamstown, Kentucky off I-75.
President and CEO of Answers in Genesis (AIG) Ken Hamm, made the announcement last night during a webcast. Hamm says his recent debate with Bill Nye the Science Guy along with the media coverage of the soon to be released film "Noah" starring Russell Crowe have helped bring the Ark Encounter project attention.
2014 was supposed to bring the opening of a huge replica of Noah’s Ark in a theme park just off I-75 at Williamstown, Kentucky. But the developers are having trouble raising funds.
The hundred acre site for the multi-million dollar version of Noah’s Ark is about a 40 miles south of Cincinnati. But all you can see on the hill-top site today are posts marking the perimeter of what promoters hope will be a wooden replica of the ark, three stories high and 500 feet long. That’s almost one and a half football fields.
