$1Billion Star Trek Resort Park Being Built...

May 23, 2011


...in Aqaba, Jordan, so a road-trip is probably out of the question. Still, maybe you could take a spaceship. Get it? Like they do in Star Trek! "Great tie-in, GW." Thanks, I've been cooking that one up all weekend. Jk jk, but I did come up with it when I hit my head on the towel bar getting off the john a couple minutes ago. Plus the flux capacitor!

Rubicon Group Holding's $1 billion, 184-acre "Red Sea Astrarium" is a resort with a Star Trek twist. According to Hotelier MiddleEast, RGH and Paramount Recreation are working closely to create a Star Trek attraction that will "deliver a variety of multi-sensory 23rd-century experiences, culminating with a state-of-the art space-flight adventure that takes real-time immersive entertainment experiences to bold new heights."

Honestly, I don't know anything about Aqaba, Jordan. Or Star Trax. Or "multi-sensory 23rd-century experiences". Or writing or comedy, making me quite possibly the least qualified person in the world to write Geekologie. But you know what? I'mma do it anyways. Plus eat this bug off the floor. Give me a quarter if I do it? A dollar, a dollar -- it's still moving.

Thanks to Alan, who's just going to go to Sandals instead.
