I had read about this awhile back. This thread reminded me of it. These articles are from December, 2010. As far as I can tell, the project is still
Disneyland has its castle and Epcot has its ball, but the centerpiece of a planned theme park in Kentucky will be something altogether different
-- [color=CFECEC]a full-scale replica of Noah's Ark.
Developers in Kentucky are drawing up plans for a $150 million theme park called the Ark Encounter, to be built on a biblical scale. The ark alone

attraction in Northern Kentucky.
Encounter FAQ . [color=CFECEC]Are you building an actual Ark?
Yes, we are constructing a full-scale, all-wood ark based on the dimensions provided in the Bible (Genesis 6), using the long cubit, and in accordance
with sound established nautical engineering practices of the era. It should become the largest timber-frame structure in the USA.

For only $100, you can be the proud sponsor of a peg. (Personally, I would call it a splinter)
For only $5,000, you can sponsor a whole beam.
