The developers of Kentucky's Creation Museum have another biblical entertainment venture in mind.
They plan to build a full-sized replica of Noah's Ark as a part of a $172 million theme park.
The museum opened three years ago south of Cincinnati, Ohio, and has already drawn more than one million visitors.
Museum officials believe the Noah's Ark Park could attract 1.6 million visitors a year. They are looking at a 800-acre site near Williamstown, Ky., just off Interstate 75.
They said the project also would include an ancient walled city, a petting zoo, live animal shows featuring giraffes and elephants and a replica of the biblical tower of Babel.
The Kentucky Tourism Development Finance Authority has granted preliminary approval for state tax incentives for the project. An economic analysis must be done before being considered for final approval.
