Jurassica comes to Dorset

Well the world of dinosaurs will be getting a new attraction by 2020.  Detailed plans have been given and shown on the BBC news, which is where I heard about it (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-dorset-30910933).  Apparently the plan is to build a dome over an old quarry near Portland and turn it into a Jurassic Period themed attraction with animatronic dinosaurs and a museum and all sorts.  Apparently the plans were first revealed in the summer last year…but I missed that lol. _80435908_theproject1 I’m rather excited about it.  If you’ve been a regular reader of my ramblings then it will come as no secret that I love dinosaurs.  Seriously you mention dinosaurs and I turn into a 10 year old kid, so the child inside me is thinking “Yay!! Dinosaur Dome!!”  Local councils, universities and chambers of commerce are currently running the necessary traffic, economic and environmental impact studies.  I hope it goes ahead and if it does I guarantee I’ll be at the doors when it opens.  Now I’m aware of it, I’ll keep an eye on it’s progress and update accordingly.  The UK tends to be very good at when it comes to museums and the Jurassic Coast is fantastic place to visit and a very good location for a dinosaur museum.  I’m excited that Sir David Attenborough is it patron.  It’s looking like it’s going to be a good project.  Can’t wait for 2020 now 🙂
