Day Two, August 26, 2021
The Ark Encounter has become world renowned for creatively ushering guests 4,400 years back in history on a virtual voyage of epic proportions. Starting in August a new theater near the massive replica of Noah’s ark will continue that time travel theme in a very special way. Have you ever wondered what it may have actually been like in Noah’s day? Well, that’s what guests will explore in the new state-of-the-art “Truth Traveler” virtual reality theater. Guests will don special virtual reality headsets and enjoy a uniquely immersive, realistic-looking experience. This world-class theater program, is a time machine of sorts. Guests will encounter Noah directing his construction crew as they build the 510-foot-long ship, and watch the animals enter, and experience the rain starting and the group rumbling as the voyage is about to start!!
Along with the new Ark experience we will enjoy concerts by Emma Bunch at 10:00 am and the “Hoppers” at 5:00 pm. Emma is an upcoming STAR, singing Southern Gospel Music. When Emma sings she pours her heart into it….Everyone can feel it with her…Her voice is beautiful….Gives me chills. Most importantly she is anointed and you can feel God’s presence when she sings. In 2020 America’s favorite Gospel music family, The Hoppers, celebrates 63 years of delighting audiences with soul-stirring, uplifting music. Multi-award winning family group The Hoppers have been singing to global audiences for over 60 years with appearances ranging from presidential religious inaugural ceremonies and New York’s Carnegie Hall to singing conventions and church platforms. They have performed throughout the United States as well as in Israel, Europe and Africa. Their unique blend of harmonies and song choices have created a legacy of musical excellence embraced by leading pastors and event organizers. Known as America’s Favorite Family of Gospel Music, they are favorites on the Gaither Homecoming videos and tours, and their recordings frequently land at the top of the billboard sales charts and The Singing News radio charts. (Breakfast, Box Lunch & Dinner)
Day Three, August 27, 2021
This morning we start with a guided tour of the Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption, a scaled down replica of the Cathedral Notre Dame, in Paris. This recently refurbished architectural beauty features a gothic design with gargoyles and flying buttresses. Among its 82 stained glass windows, are a Rose window, larger than the one at Notre Dame, and the largest stained-glass window in the world. This Basilica is one of only thirty- one Basilica’s in the country, and is considered the most beautiful in the WORLD. Last we visit Beau Verre Riordan Studios, the oldest continually operating stained glass studio in the country – established in 1838. We take a tour back in time as owners explain the history of the building and studio. As we view stained glass windows with the sun cascading through and casting different hues of colors on the floor we learn how they are created and see the artisans at work. (Breakfast)
