Chinese businessman Sun Wenqing hopes to build a biblical theme park in Moose Jaw, Sakatchewan. A cemetery has just been approved as the site of his future theme park which will feature full-sized replicas of Biblical structures such as the Tabernacle and Noah's ark.

"This will be a one-of-a-kind tourist attraction and I think there will be people coming from all over the world to visit," says Marc L'Hoir, the manager of Sunset Cemetery, toCBC News.

Sun, a former Buddhist who converted to Christianity, already built a similar park in Shenyang, China. L'Hoir says that the theme park is just one of Sun's ways of spreading Christianity to the world.

L'Hoir expectsthe park to be a popular tourist destination and hopes that it will add value to the cemetery.

"You know how many people go to Vatican City? How many people go to Jerusalem to the Wailing Wall? So once the word gets out and we start marketing it, I think it'll be a real tourist attraction for Moose Jaw," L'Hoir says. "Plus it's going to enhance the cemetery. Hopefully people want to be buried there," he adds.

The park will be built on two hectares of land next to the cemetery. L'Hoir says that the cost of the park's construction is estimated at $1.2 million. He shares that the park will be built in phases and it will be opened before the entire park is completely finished.

Mike Wirges, the administrator of the Rural Municipality of Moose Jaw, says that the development plans for the park were approved last week. He believes that the proposed park will be more passive and entirely different from theme parks with rides.

The size of the ark is expected to be 136 meters long, 23 meters wide and 13 meters high. Other parts of the world also host such big attractions. Ken Ham's "Ark Encounter" in Kentuckyspans155.4 meters long, 25.9 meters wide and 15.54 meters high. Another full-size replica of Noah's ark was alsobuiltin Hong Kong in 2009.
