Disney Life-size Noah's Ark to Open in Kentucky on July 7

Life-size replica of the Biblical Noah's Ark has been built in Williamstown, Kentucky. The Ark sits 30 miles south of Cincinnati in Northern Kentucky's scenic river region.

The new Ark is a centerpiece called Ark Encounter, a theme park set to open to the public on July 7 is a faithful reconstruction of the world's most famous Biblical lifeboat.

Measuring 510 feet in length - or 300 cubits, as specified in the Bible - the vessel rising in Williamstown will be nearly as long as three Space Shuttles laid end to end and cover some 120,000 square feet. By comparison, the White House is 55,000 square feet.

The ark, described by its builders at the biggest timber-frame structure in the U.S., will also come stocked with hundreds of sculpted creatures in reference to the belief that God instructed Noah to bring along "two of every kind" of animal. A petting zoo with live animals is also in the works, while future phases of the project call for building the kind of antediluvian city Noah's family might have lived in, as well as the Tower of Babel.
