Say hello to Ark Encounter.
Kentucky Governor Unveils Plans For Creationist Theme Park Complete With Full-Sized Ark
. . .
A joint project between Beshear and Answers in Genesis -- a Christian organization that also built a similar attraction, the Creation Museum -- the park will reportedly cost at least $150 million and create 900 jobs, according to the news release.
Beshear's spokesperson Kerri Richardson declined to comment beyond what was in her office's news release on the project.
The amusement park, named Ark Encounter, will include all the modern recreation amenities, including: a full-sized wooden ark, a "walled city much like was found in ancient times, a replica of the Tower of Babel with exhibits, a first-century Middle Eastern village" and even outdoor parking. The park is scheduled to open in the spring of 2014.
