Trekkie Dream Come True: A ‘Star Trek’ Theme Park Is Officially On The Way

For decades, Trekkies everywhere have surely fantasized about a special place dedicated to the world of Gene Roddenberry‘s legendary creation, Star Trek. A place where they could escape their own boring lives, and become their favorite Trek characters for a day or two.

Well, ladies and gentlemen, just such a place is on its way…though there’s a bit of a catch that comes with it.

As it turns out, Jordan’s King Abdullah II once appeared in a non–speaking role on Star Trek: Voyager while he was still a prince (you can see it here), and he remains to this day a massive, massive Trekkie. So much so that he’s willing and ready to drop a chunk of the jaw–dropping $1.5 billion cost to make the theme park a reality.

As a whole, the attraction will be part of The Red Sea Astrarium, which is being developed and produced by Rubicon Group Holding. The 184–acre tourist destination will be located in the coastal town of Aqaba, Jordan, and will also feature 5–star hotels, dining and shopping, theatrical productions, celebrations of the area’s rich history, and much more.

The Star Trek section of the Astrarium will be a center inspired by the 2009 J.J. Abrams film. It will feature many different “23rd–century multi–sensory experiences, culminating with a state-of-the art space-flight adventure that takes real-time immersive entertainment experiences to bold new heights.”

Now all you have to do is figure out how to get to Jordan by 2014 when the resort is hoping to open its gates by.

You can read more about the announcement and get more details by checking out and liking Rubicon’s Facebook page.
