Jordan's new Star Trek theme park

Jordan will soon have its huge new Star Trek-themed attraction, after funding worth $1.5bn was secured for the whole project. The ambitious 184 acre site will be called the Red Sea Astrarium and will be located in the coastal town of Aqaba. It will feature four hotels and Star Trek-themed attractions, including a state of the art space flight adventure simulator ride.


In the park the visitor will be able to see attractions which will feature Jordan's Nabatean, Babylonia, Roman and British influences, along with theatrical productions, night time shows, restaurants and shops. The park is a project introduced by King Abdullah of Jordan, who is a massive Star Trek fan, having featured as an extra in an episode of the television show Star Trek: Voyager. 
Construction on the park is expected to begin in March 2012 and the opening is scheduled for 2014. So if anyone wishes to visit the Middle-Eastern country, probably wait 3 years in order to visit this unique park.
