Plans move forward on dinosaur park
By ROYCELYN BASTIAN, News Editor06/21/2007

An artist’s rendering shows the entrance to the dinosaur park that will be built in East Montgomery County. These drawings and other design plans have not received final approval and are subject to change before construction begins in 2008.
......................
Imagine riding roller coasters and water slides while learning about prehistoric animals.
That is the basic theme of the new dinosaur park that is slated to be built in East Montgomery County. At this time, the latest name given to the park is Earth Quest Adventures.
When Astroworld shut down a few years ago, it left the children in Houston and surrounding areas such as EMC, Kingwood, Humble, Atascocita and Spring without an amusement park to visit during spring breaks and summer vacations.
With the new dinosaur park, parents will not have to travel to Dallas and San Antonio for a fun vacation, which will keep all economic revenue in the area.
"The dinosaur park, a $500 million project, will be built in East Montgomery County with the intention of having a dinosaur museum for children and adults to learn about the animals, a theme park consisting of roller coasters and water rides and a thematic hotel and spa that will be built within the park.

That is very cool. I hope it gets built. Something educational and fun for the family for weekends, summer vacations, and spring breaks.

This is great news and should be nice, I mean $500 million isn't exactly a drop in the pan. After the shady acts of Six Flags and the whole AstroWorld situation, Houston deserves this new park, not to mention a owner who actually cares for his property.

This park should also be very beautiful. With the natural untouched thicket of that area, the park is basically going to be built in the middle of the forest, and it sounds like the developer is going to be sensitive to that.:banana:

When does Tilman Fertitta come in and build a super-amusement park here in the Houston area?
Oh bite your tongue! Besides, he has plans for the Flagship Hotel down in Galveston that includes amusement rides, boardwalk, etc., all over the Gulf, and that should be enough of his projects for Houston for now.

I heard this thing will have roller coasters as well. At 150 acres, it is almost twice the size of Astroworld. Will this be like Busch Gardens?
