Massive Group of 525 People from California Visits the Ark Encounter

We enjoy receiving many, many groups of various sizes at the Ark Encounter and Creation Museum. Every day, tour buses pour in—it’s wonderful to see! Well, we recently had a group come all the way from Calvary Chapel Chino Hills, California (a church I’ve spoken at several times in the past). And this group might just break an Ark Encounter record for being our largest group yet!

The Chino Hills group was a group of 525 people—10 tour buses from the same church! And they traveled from the West Coast to Kentucky by flying or driving. This church hosted a “Science Experience” trip geared towards 4–6th graders, along with their families, to visit both the Ark and Creation Museum. They purchased our 3-Day Bouncer Passes (three days of unlimited “bouncing” between the attractions) and split their large groups into three separate “tracks” with their own itineraries, including private programs each day that we offer for groups.

As you can see—this was a huge group!

What an amazing experience for the families!

Many church groups visit our world-class attractions for learning, fun, and equipping to stand for truth in this very secular, anti-Christian culture. Wow! What an amazing experience for the families! You can contact our reservations team if you’re interested in bringing a group. Planning a “Science Experience” for your church is a great idea to equip families with answers and help them connect together and build relationships within the church as well.

What a Backdrop!

I also thought I would share this stunning photo with you that one of our staff members took recently. In this night shot, you can see the cross lit up on the door, reminding people they must go through one door to be saved. And the colors red, white, and blue remind us to pray for our nation and our political leaders.
