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. Other experiences such as the Truth Traveler: (Additional cost not included in tour) Get seated in the Truth Traveler time machine and journey back to the time of Noah in our immersive virtual reality experience, A Flood of Reality! Pod, the lovable robot, will be your guide as you witness the building of Noah’s ark, experience the flood, venture inside the ark with the animals, and more—including some exciting surprises along the way! Then the Ziplines, Ararat Ridge Zoo, Gift Shop, and Fossil Find. After, we’ll depart for our hotel to relax and freshen up prior to dinner.
