Star Trek is about to get the theme park treatment – in Spain. StarTrek.com today shared the first concept art of what the Futura Plaza at Spain's Paramount Park Murcia will look like.
The forthcoming park is currently scheduled to be ready by the end of 2015. The whole thing will include:
The wide-ranging project will incorporate condos and office buildings, hotels, malls, a casino, a convention center, gardens, nightlife and dining areas, an exhibition hall/auditorium and… a theme park divided into several sections.
But Star Trek fans will be mostly interested in Futura Plaza, designed to appeal to fans of the franchise, which includes:
a Starfleet Spain recruiting center, a 3D simulator ride (which allows guests/recruits to experience adventures in outer space), and a Warp Speed Coaster that will reach exciting heights and speeds and include an underground portion (a wormhole, naturally) and several loops.
Gotta admit the concept art looks pretty cool, and this will probably be the closest we can get to actually being inside Star Trek.
