Life-Size Noah's Ark To Dock In Kentucky

The same people behind the Bluegrass State's Creation Museum have recently announced another attraction that's sure to draw not only the faithful, but also those like myself who adore over-the-top roadside spectacles. This time, it's a full-size, fully stocked, $150-million Noah's Ark.

Called the Ark Encounter, the new Bible-themed park will also include a "Walled City" featuring shops and restaurants depicting "the lifestyle of the people of Noah’s day," a replica Tower of Babel, a movie theater sporting apparently physics-defying "5-D special effects" and, of course, a petting zoo.

Plus — and this might just be the best part — as confirmed during a press conference, the Ark will be carrying dinosaurs.

As long as planners can sell enough pegs, planks and beams in time, the park will open in 2014.
