The American Research Group predicts as many as 1.2 million people will visit the attraction in its first year alone!! From a structural standpoint alone, the ark is amazing. The ark is 510 feet long and 80 feet high. Imagine the statue of Liberty lying horizontally. Now add 200 feet to it and you’re still five feet short of the ark’s length. There are 3 floors and there are elevators. There are 132 exhibit areas! This is the largest timber frame structure in the world! We are giving you 3 and 1/2 hours to tour the ark – with 45 minutes for the restaurant and gift shop.
