Sleep in the Ark, Enjoy Breakfast, and Interact with Zoo Animals
After your group checks in at 7:30 p.m., they will experience a special program and a walk-through tour of the Ark before the lights go out at midnight. The next morning the group will enjoy a continental breakfast at Emzara’s Kitchen, our 1,500-seat restaurant located next to the Ark. Your group will then have the unique opportunity to interact with the animals in Ararat Ridge Zoo before the park opens. Afterwards, your group will tour the Ark, zoo, and gift shop during regular operating hours.
Groups can vary in size from 30 to 100, and we require 1 chaperone per 10 students, with a minimum of 4 chaperones (2 male, 2 female; chaperones must be 18 years of age or older). This fun, new program runs Sunday to Friday from January to May and then again from September to November. For overnight participants (ages 9–17), the cost is only $59, and up to 8 chaperones get a special rate of $42 (that’s only $2 more than one regular adult admission!). Additional chaperones must pay the participant price.
Bring Your Youth or School Group
This is a great opportunity for junior high or high school youth groups or Christian schools (even public schools) to have a great—and very memorable—time while learning truth. They will get answers to their questions, be exposed to the gospel, and be challenged concerning the truth of God’s Word from the very beginning. This is an ideal event for students to invite their unbelieving or unchurched friends.
