A devout Christian is spending more than $90million constructing a 500-foot long Noah's Ark which will become the largest timber-framed building in the world. The full-sized wooden replica of the ship from the biblical story of Noah and the Great Flood is to become the main attraction at a US amusement park set to open in July. Inside the ark will be several exhibits featuring Noah and his family, along with information to help the public understand the Bible.
Ken Ham is president and chief executive of Answers in Genesis, the Christian organisation behind the Noah's Ark-themed amusement park in Kentucky, Daily Mail reports.
The ark, which is nearing completion, will be 510 foot long and stand 80 feet high. It will be able to encounter 16,000 guests per day. To build the full replica, 3.3 million feet of wooden boards will be used, not counting exhibits inside.Source: Daily Mail
