    Fantastic. You just wait until one of the mechanical monsters gets out... Tokyo won't stand a chance.

    They're spending that much and Jeff Goldblum isn't going to be involved?

    Dubai just isn't putting the effort in any more!:rolleyes:

    And Jaffa MechaGodzilla was rubbish! :p

    Indeed – one tug of his titanium bonce and it came off. Shoddy workmanship if ever I saw it.

    Hopefully when the themepark dinos go o teh rampage they'll be as easily defeated.

    Dubai definitely seems to be a happenin' place. Wonder how long it will last though :eek: Interesting how foreigners outnumber locals :D

    Tactile experience? Does that mean visitors get eaten?

    I am sure the park will be amazing, but a little creepy with Robot Dinos tracking your every move... ;) :D

    I visited Dubai this past summer. It's like Disneyland, except, you know, more magical, or, uh, something. I guess they've gotta do something to offset their impending emptying of oil reserves, so they're making the world's largest, most expensive, most gratuitous everything.

    Hopefully there won't be a fat Dennis Nedry running the show? ;)

    That would have put them over budget. He's skinny there.

    Watch now, Bush and the creationists will want to bomb the place.

    Also, if you haven't seen them, check out the man-made islands. Google maps shows them well. I want a boat dealership there.

    Actually, no. They not only believe in dinosaurs, but believe they co-existed with people. So they'll love this place! :p But OK, let's be careful, before we get this thread moved.
