Ken Ham: Outside of the Disneys ,the Universals the big guys I believe this will be certainly one of the biggest attractions in the world. I think it’ll be the biggest attraction in America ,outside of the big guys.

Ken Ham, of the Christian Ministry Answers in Genesis, is referring to the Ark Encounter a Bible-based theme park and its centerpiece, a  replica of Noah’s Ark.  Construction of the 510 foot-long wooden boat is underway in Northern Kentucky.  Ham says, despite a question of whether the tourist attraction is eligible for tax incentives, it’s being built.
