THE ARK-Tour the most authentic life-sized replica of Noah's Ark in the world where millions are coming from every corner of the globe to see the biblical account of the Ark come to life. The Ark is an architectural and engineering wonder containing three decks of world-class exhibits. At 510 feet long, 85 feet wide, and 51 feet high, the Ark is massive. Prepare to be amazed! Join us during this special 40 days/40 nights world’s largest Christian Musical Festival.  Enjoy two shows at the Ark.

The Creation Museum
At the 75,000-square-foot Creation Museum, the pages of the Bible dramatically come to life. Journey through biblical history as you marvel at the Garden of Eden alongside Adam and Eve. The themes of the exhibits resound in the various theater presentations: The Last Adam, Six Days of Creation, Men in White (special effects), and Star Gazers Planetarium. There's always something exciting going on! In addition, you can visit the beautiful seasonal Botanical Gardens, the Petting Zoo which includes a Zorse and a Zonkey, and an extensive Gift Shop.

Wasn't That A Mighty Storm! Rain, Floods and Fun
Yes! A flood song can be fun. A song about rain can be riveting. And storm songs can swing! Join us for this engaging show featuring songs from different genres about rain, floods and related natural disasters such as "Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head" (BJ Thomas), "Early Morning Rain" (Gordon Lightfoot & Peter, Paul and Mary), and tunes from the American Songbook like "Singing in the Rain" and "Stormy Weather" and, of course, 'Wasn't That a Mighty Storm."

Remember the glory days of rock and roll when you'd go out on a date with your car radio blasting the latest doo-wop sounds from New Jersey, surf music from California, or the cool tunes from New York City's Brill Building? Remember when AM Top Forty was king? Enjoy the sounds that were on your old 45’s, the king of rock and roll, the doo- wop beat, do the twist with Chubby Checker and the Stroll…. jump and jive, jitterbug or sit back and remember!!   Mr. Chris is formerly with Dick Clarks Ole’ Rock and Roll Show.  Songs such as Walking on Sunshine, Good Vibrations, “When the Shark Bites” and so many others to keep your feet a movin’ and hands clapping!!

The Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption
A scaled down replica of the Cathedral Notre Dame, in Paris. This recently refurbished architectural beauty features a gothic design with gargoyles and flying buttresses. Among its 82 stained glass windows, are a Rose window, larger than the one at Notre Dame, and the largest stained-glass window in the world. The Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption is one of only 35 minor basilicas in the United States and is considered the most beautiful.
