Scenes from Ark Encounter’s Opening Day (Inside the Ark)

I‘m in Kentucky for the opening day of Ark Encounter and, in addition to our live videos on Facebook, here are some of the scenes inside the park. (If you want to know what the outside looks like, click here!)

The crowds are waiting to get inside (at 1:00p local time):

Inside the Ark we go! This is the first floor.

I’ve never agreed with Ken Ham more than I do at this moment.

Whip it. Whip it good.

Actually, Ken, we don’t need “fairy tale” arks to mock a literal interpretation of the Book of Genesis:

Fun for the whole family!

Cages. Lots of cages.

Does this count at LGBT outreach?

It’s Ken!…

Hello, Noah!

Ken Ham clearly did not want to see me.

It’s the storage area of the Ark:

With a vegetarian diet. (Little known fact: Noah’s family was full of hipsters.)

It’s dizzying in here:
