The Carousel Is Almost Ready at the Ark Encounter

The stunning unique carousel at the Ark Encounter is almost completed! This will be an amazing teaching carousel with lots of artwork and signage about the flood account in Genesis and the animal kinds on the ark. Families will love it! I believe it’s going to be extremely popular and another great addition to our family playground area at this world-class Christian themed attraction.

Construction is almost finished, and lots of testing and staff training are taking place before it can open to our Ark Encounter guests. It will hopefully be opened by the end of the month or early August.

As I mentioned, this will be a teaching carousel. Not only are there scenes depicting various events associated with the ark and flood around the top of the carousel, but there will be many teaching signs about each of the animals people will be riding. The animals (representing animal kinds) sculptured for this ride are featured in various Ark exhibits.

Carousel rides are included with Ark Encounter admission and are open to everyone.

Carousel rides are included with Ark Encounter admission and are open to everyone (there are minimum weight and age requirements—must be two years and older to conform to state and manufacturer regulations). The platform was built flush with the floor to accommodate all levels of ability.

We can’t wait for families to be able to enjoy this new attraction at the Ark!
