But maybe not *exactly* in the way you’d expect. As a result, Insurance might leave them high and dry.
By now, chances are you’ve heard about the Noah’s Ark tourist attraction, “Ark Encounter” where they built a replica of the biblical ark to life-sized specifications.
If you haven’t, they have a video showing what they’re about.
In a weird twist of irony, heavy rains in Kentucky in 2017/2018 led to significant damage to the park. Significant, as in $1M of damage.
But as we said, the damage from heavy rains did not quite in the way you might think. Unless of course, you were thinking about landslides.
(And no, the ark itself was not what had been damaged.)
The landslide took out an access road.
The Ark Encounter says in a federal lawsuit that heavy rains in 2017 and 2018 caused a landslide on its access road. The Courier Journal reports the attraction’s insurance carriers refused to cover the damage.
The 510-foot-long wooden ark has been a popular northern Kentucky attraction since its 2016 opening. The lawsuit says the road has been rebuilt. The ark was not damaged.
The suit names Allied World Assurance Co. Holdings of Switzerland, its use company and three other insurance carriers.
Why is the insurance company saying they shouldn’t pay up?
The insurance carriers refused to cover any of the damage costs, arguing that ‘faulty design or workmanship’ on the road is not covered by the owners’ policy, according to the suit.
Ark Encounter’s complaint says the insurer later agreed to pay a fraction of the cost that it said was covered by the policy.

Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
