This is just stupid. When half of the world's population lives in poverty and is starving, such a waste of money is absolutely ridiculous, and whoever came up with this thing, should be ashamed of himself.

I dont know if they should be ashamed because some people in the world live in poverty. i just think the whole concept is to put it bluntly "retarded".

Holy crap! How the hell can they do all of this? Where will all the people come from to fill this massive park?

And real dinosaurs, wtf?
They would need some superfast transport to get around this park.
But when its done, I will go there in a heartbeat.

I don't have much to say about the project, but the video was really strange. The cheesy voiceover basically reminded me of all the movies pretending to be from the future.

surely the dinusaurios will be mechanics, will be robots. And Proud_Melburnian you are right. But it is not because of this the problem. it is so that the rich countries have to be less egoistic and to destine good amount of money to eradicate the hunger and to avoid the wars. it is not possible to be let construct so that there is hunger. They are different things. this is an amusement park that will serve to guarantee the stability of the Emirates when it is not left petroleum, and that not this badly
