It sounds like it is shaping up to be a cheap Disney park clone. Every ride sounds familiar, Star Tours, Space Mountain, 4d shows, etc.
It doesn't sound like a park I would go to, but it might be a successful local park, and draw in a few tourists to Spain. Who know's though, maybe it'll surprise me.

Well to be fair, any new theme park with Disney attraction standards and theming in mind, only improves and raises the standards of the theme park industry as a whole. So maybe it's for the best and the park would evolve over time...

Ok, I mention a Star Trek ride on "What next for Universal" article and everybody get's on Star Trek ain't what it used to be. Excuses like Star Trek is dead, too old, not enough people are seeing the new movies, but a Star Trek ride in this Spain park. Nobody gets on this Star Trek ride won't work bandwagon all the sudden. Well I making a stand. I believe Star Trek ride WILL work at a theme park. Let's remember Star Trek hasn't done well in the foreign market, until with this new movie. Also, it's a reset. A younger generation is getting to know this property for potential growth. And let's know forget, all these fanboys and Disney purist called Star Tour 2.0 a waste of time back in the day due to those lousy prequels. So, don't give me this Star Trek won't cut it guff. Yeah, the Vegas Trek stuff was cool, but I believe it open in the wrong market. Vegas is a party adult environment. And Trek Experience wasn't the only thing that close. Let's not forget MGM theme park and all those roller coasters like Speed and Stratosphere that now close too.
Here's a bit of inside info most people overlook about Star Trek problem not about the movie, but on ownership. Trek is park of a divorce between Paramount Pictures and CBS. Where Paramount has the right to the movies and CBS has all the TV stuff. This is the reason why this Spain park has the new reboot Star Trek ride cause it's from the new movies. They can't build all of the Star Trek ip. So, if we get a Star Trek ride here in the U.S. It's not where, but with whom? So, I won't go with this Trek can't bring it bull. Plus, I think most of the hate comes from people who don't like the reboot, even if they say they do. Mainly like the new Man of Steel movie. It's not the same thing they grew up with, so they must not like it or care about.

Who are they kidding? They can't build a theme park worth anything for that price.

They think 70 million is going to buy them a whole theme park loaded with high tech attractions? On which planet?

They're trying to pretend that $70 million will buy a whole theme park full of high tech attractions? On what planet is that even remotely possible?
