Crews putting finishing touches on Kentucky Kingdom

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Crews have been busy putting the finishing touches on a Louisville theme park.

At Kentucky Kingdom and Hurricane Bay Tuesday water was filling the wave pool while an aquatic team was making sure Mile High Falls was good to go.

The revamped water park will feature a 12-story tall slide, so tall the Louisville International Airport had to suspend air traffic to allow the park to put the final pieces in place.

The park is scheduled to open May 24.
