RIVERSIDE, CA – Complete Coach Works (CCW) is excited to announce it has delivered three buses to the Ark Encounter, a biblical theme park in Williamstown, Kentucky, featuring a 510-foot replica of Noah’s Ark.
The project will supply the Ark Encounter with a fleet of eleven refurbished low-floor buses. The 40-foot buses are undergoing a complete overhaul at CCW’s Riverside, California, facility and will be delivered to the theme park within the upcoming weeks. The buses will be used to shuttle guests from the Ark Encounter parking lot to the attraction, 1.5 miles away.
The new buses are heading to Kentucky showing off their themed graphic artwork. There are multiple artwork themes, some featuring pairs of animals (such as monkeys, zebras, lions, etc.), dinosaurs, starry night skies and more. Whenever they are on the road, the buses create a lively buzz among adults and kids alike.
There is a daily Facebook video blog of buses 4 and 5 showcasing their tour across the country. Updates can be found on the Ark Encounter’s website page at www.facebook.com/ArkEncounter.
Jay Raber, Sales Manager at CCW, said the buses are already being used for special events. Raber said, “Ark officials are very pleased and have expressed to me that these buses are a great value to the theme park.” Raber also stated, “They love how the graphics turned out on the bus.”
Dan Mangus, Operations Director for Ark Encounter, said “The buses are so gorgeous that we have one parked right in front of the Creation Museum at the moment.” He said that volunteers working on the Ark are “amazed by the way these buses look and run.”
Raber says he and his team at CCW are very excited to see how this project will help the Ark Encounter at their upcoming opening on July 7th, 2016.
