Star Trek Theme Park coming to the Middle East

Jordan’s King Abdullah is a big Star Trek fan (and actually played an extra on the show).
He likes the series so much that he’s backing the construction of a $1.5 billion Star-Trek themed park in Aqaba on the Red Sea coast.

Construction work on the 74-hectare Red Sea Astrarium project in Aqaba, which will include four hotels and 17 entertainment developments, is expected to start early next year, The National reported.
The project is being funded by investors from the US and the Gulf, according to a partner in the project.
The Amman company Rubicon Group Holding, which makes animated films, said in May that it would design and produce the entertainment elements of the resort.
The “Star Trek” attraction is being creatively developed by Paramount Recreation.
