New Owners as of August 2015. ESTES ARK is an amazing must see experience: Noah's Attic which has many ark novelty items and books and activities. Our Rainbow Curve Raceway nostalgic slot car race track a flashback in time (There are rental fees that include the car and control racing 1/24 scale cars). Business was established in Estes Park, CO in 1984 offering an adventure in shopping and fun on 3 levels. Over 10,000 stuffed animals featuring collectible Teddy Bears, antiques and many stuffed animals of all species, nostalgic games, candy and just plain fun items. Animals range from miniature to life size and exotic to National Park species. Newly added Sluice Mining on the deck. You get to sluice for Gems, fossils and arrowheads to bring home in a bag. Opening only in spring, summer and fall when weather permits. We are a National award winning store. Stop in for a visit, we would love to meet you!

There are new owners, and they plan to have more variety in the future. For now, there are still a lot of stuffed animals. The basement has a neat slot car track. And, of course, it's neat to see the building from the outside, as it is a nice looking ark.

I thought this place was an attraction. It is a stuffed animal store in a building that looks like Noah's Ark. If you like stuffed animals and have 30 minutes to spare, take a look.

We came here with our son to gem mine we had a good time and met both the owners who were exceptional people. I always like to learn from locals who tell you the best places to go in town. If you are into geocaching they have a fun one, good luck. If you came here before and saw only... More

Return visit. Hadn't been here in several years. Mostly stuffed animals for sale but some games for kids too. The wooden ark building itself is amazing and worth a visit. (The store has been for sale for a couple of years.)

We stayed in a resort close to this store. I would probably not go back to this store simply because there were way too many stuffed animals for my liking! My husband did enjoy visiting the slot car raceway. I went to shop for my granddaughter but left empty-handed.

If you are tired of the craziness of downtown Estes Park but want to check out some local shopping, stop at the Ark. Not only will you find the building to be very interesting, you'll enjoy the shopping experience. We know the new owners from their prior business and you'll find them to be very nice people. Stop in and... More

There is fun for the adults and kids from shopping, slot car racing, to panning for real gems. We would defiantly go back, the whole family loved it!
