This morning we will enjoy breakfast at the hotel before heading to the Creation Museum. The history of the Bible vividly comes to life at the world-class Creation Museum. As you enter the Time Tunnel, you’ll be transported back 6,000 years to the dawn of time as you begin your walk-through biblical history. You’ll encounter a realistic Garden of Eden, animatronic Noah, Flood dioramas, and stunning video displays throughout your journey. Other exhibits include a fascinating insectarium, sculpted dinosaurs of all kinds in the Dino Den, a full-size Allosaurus skeleton, and much more. Lunch on own. Plenty of time to see everything this museum has to offer. Then we depart for our hotel to check in, relax and then have a TON of fun at a 1930’s Theme Dinner (Pre-Paid). Hmmmm…wonder what it is? LOL

Enjoy breakfast at our hotel heading to the Newport Aquarium. This underwater world showcases thousands of animals from around the world in a million gallons of water. Be among the first to explore the new exhibit Shipwreck: Realm of the Eels, visit with all your favorite animals like sharks, penguins and stingrays and Dare to Cross Shark Bridge! Then we’re off to spend some time at The Ark Encounter. With Lunch Voucher (Pre-Paid) for Emzara’s Kitchen. Ark Encounter is three exhibits in one—the massive Ark structure itself, the incredible craftsmanship, and the beautifully fabricated teaching exhibits. The combination of all three will amaze and inspire you to think differently about the biblical account of Noah’s Ark. Featuring a full-size Noah’s Ark, built according to the dimensions given in the Bible. Nasa could lay three shuttles, nose-to-tail on the Ark’s roof! Spanning 510 feet long, 85 feet wide, and 51 feet high, this modern engineering marvel. We’ll tour three decks filled with scores of world-class exhibit bays. These stunning exhibits allow you to experience what Noah’s life may have been like. After, we’ll depart for our hotel to relax and freshen up prior to dinner. Depart for BB’s Riverboats for their Signature Captain’s Dinner Cruise. Take in the skyline, watch the river go by, and enjoy a fantastic meal aboard.
