Earth Quest Adventures?
Written by Mike Anderson
I recently saw an article in a local Houston community newspaper about a new theme park being planned near New Caney, TX (about 30 miles north of Houston). The park was originally to be called Dinosaur City and was to be a 50 acre "edutainment" center. No rides were mentioned when the first announcement was first made about 6 months ago.Tweet
The latest news as of 6/21/07 regarding this project is that the park will now be 150 acres, will provide 2700 new jobs, and cost $500 million to construct. The article also said that now the project will include roller coasters and water rides.
I can provide a link, but this is only my first post at this website and I don't want to violate any policies. So, I will hold off until the webmaster says it's o.k. to post the link. [Linking's fine. We just ask folks not to cut-'n-paste whole copyrighted articles. Feel free to add the link in the comments.-Ed.]
As a local who is still not over the loss of AstroWorld, this is really exciting news to me. I was hoping to get hear opinions about the article from theme park enthusiast like myself.
They are talking about it in some Houston based forums but I haven't heard any mention of the story in any theme park based forums.
