Noah’s ark attraction ready to open in Kentucky

A Noah’s Ark attraction built by Christians who say the biblical story really happened is ready to open in Kentucky.
    
The long-awaited theme park based on the story of a man who got a warning from God about a worldwide flood will debut in central Kentucky this week. The Christian group behind the 510 foot-long wooden ark says it will demonstrate that the stories of the Bible are true.
    
Its construction has rankled opponents who say the attraction will be detrimental to science education.
    
Ken Ham, president of the group Answers in Genesis, is welcoming media and some VIP guests to the big boat on Tuesday. The ark will open to the public on Thursday.  Ham says up to two million could visit the ark in its first year.
