LINK Ark Encounter Ticket Sales Continued to Plummet in December Due to COVID-19 | Hemant Mehta | Friendly Atheist | Patheos

Attendance at Ark Encounter remains at rock bottom during the pandemic. It’s not their fault, obviously, but the recovery has been slow for them just like everyone else.

The bottom line? Ark Encounter had 34,273 paying visitors in December. But that’s still lower than the 37,880 they had last December. It means that their attempts to draw people in during Christmas were still impacted the pandemic. While this is the smallest drop-from-previous-year they’ve had since the pandemic began, it continues a 10-month trend of failure.

Ark Encounter cracks me up. They even have a bilge pump to show you how feces and other debris were removed from the big boat. LOL

LOL. you a boat owner?

Bullshit! These same people who won't go there will flock to church. It's not the pandemic, this place sucks and attendance is waining badly.

To be honest, i'm surprised that it's still open.

I have to wonder if this is sort of a Nickelback effect. The more that people hate, the more screen time the brand gets.

To be honest, the exact reason why I used to get annoyed with Youtube Atheists (years ago now) for always reacting to the idiotic antics of Josh Feuerstein, Ken Ham, Kevin Sorbo and a growing list of other theistic idiots. Don't get me wrong, in terms of turning a profit out of clicks, it's like taking candy from a baby. But it also gives these people WAY more widespread coverage than they would otherwise have had.

But, that was years ago at this point. I was thinking THEN that this would now likely be the biggest abandoned arc in the world. Not quite yet, it seems.

Sadly they have benefited from state and local government support.

@Barnie2years Sad.

Ken should have just gotten an IPO. I'd short the hell outta that sucker.

@Mb_Man he sucked up a lot of government funding, plus crazy church support. All those tax fee dollars. He didn’t need normal funding.

Aw, that's sad, can I have the mailing address so I can send them some rusty old steel nuts?

They would not get anybody, if stupid agnostics/atheists did not go along to laugh.
