Australian Billionaire Wants to Create Jurassic Park Resort
Billionaire Hopes to Clone Dinosaur for Jurassic Park Resort
It's the stuff of movies -- cloning dinosaurs to create a themed resort. Yep, that's Jurassic Park, and one Australian billionaire is looking to make it a reality.
Perhaps he never saw how that movie ended?
But I digress ...
Back to the matter at hand, Australian businessman Clive Palmer wants to add a dino element to his Palmer Coolum Resort.
And I'm not just talking about fake animatronic dinosaurs roaming the resort -- no, Palmer wants the real deal.
Since dinosaurs are extinct, as you know, Palmer is hoping that cloning technology can bring a T-Rex to life in the resort, with Sunshine Coast Daily reporting, "The controversial billionaire is rumored to be planning to clone a dinosaur from DNA so he can set it free in a Jurassic Park-style area at his new Palmer Resort in Coolum."
The site adds that the billionare has "been in deep discussion with the people who successfully cloned Dolly the sheep to bring his dinosaur vision to life."
The resort already has a Titanic culinary experience, would you believe, where a chef "lovingly recreates" the meal served on the Titanic.
Totally weird, right?
