From the moment you turn the corner and the towering Ark comes into view, to the friendly animals in the petting zoo, to the jaw-dropping exhibits inside the Ark, you’ll experience the pages of the Bible like never before. This marvel of engineering is seven stories tall and is a football field and a half long. It is the largest timber frame structure in the world. Get ready to experience close-up encounters with stunning animals; some life-like recreations from Noah’s day and many living and breathing animals from today. There is so much to see and do. Explore the Ark Encounter with its state of the art exhibits, visit Ararat Ridge Zoo’s exotic animals, ride zip lines reaching up to 50 mph, ride a camel, plus much more!

Then visit the Tower of Babel and finish your tour by watching the theater production, The Last Adam.
Then discover the wonder of an underwater world at the Newport Aquarium. See thousands of the world’s most exotic aquatic creatures as you waddle with playful penguins, meet rare white alligators, be surrounded by sharks and surprised by smiling stingrays. Encounter thrilling adventures like the first-in-the-world Shark Bridge, where you can cross inches above a tank full of sharks on a rope bridge. Plus, experience the NEW exhibit Shipwreck: Realm of the Eels and explore a long ago-sunken ship and the creatures that call this accidental reef home.
This evening enjoy a two and half hour dinner cruise aboard one of the B. B. Riverboats – the Belle of Cincinnati or River Queen. Take in the skyline, watch the river go by listen to the soft sounds of the DJ and enjoy a fantastic meal. (B,D)
