Plans for a biblical theme park in Northern Kentucky are moving forward.

Founders of the controversial Creation Museum say they've raised enough money to move forward with the project.

The theme park will be centered around a 510-foot replica of Noah's Ark.

They've raised $14.4 million dollars in private donations that will go towards the $24.5 million needed only to build the ark.

The park will include a pre-flood themed area, live animal shows and a Tower of Babel featuring a special-effects theater and 1st century village.

Crews plan to break ground in May. The park is slated to open in Summer 2016.
