All information gathered here came from The East Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce (link below) and is in the public domain. (But still written in my own words.)
Earth Quest Adventures:
Will be a dinosaur themed Disney quality resort 30 miles north of Houston in New Caney, Texas.
The resort seems to be a reality after Texas Gov. Rick Perry signed in to law legislation for tax incentives to secure the project to East Montgomery County.
The $1.5 billion earth friendly (Green) resort is being developed by Marlin Atlantis and “Dino” Don Lessum (Paleontologist and film adviser for the Jurassic Park films) and will sit on 500 acres of densely wooded pine forest and consist of the following: (also see map links below)
Themed Thrill Park (Opening Summer 2012)
Dinosaur Museum This 250,000 square foot complex will sit on 50 acres, and house the worlds largest collection of complete dinosaurs and dinosaur bones. In addition it will also house a working research lab for science and education.
Water Parks (Opening 2012)
On site themed 300 room hotel and Spa
15 other hotels will surround the Park
Themed Camping resort
And much more…

Let me tell you, That pine forest is thick and if they do this right it will be one beautiful
park. I could only get back about 3/10s of a mile before the trail ended, but what i saw is one really choice spot for a theme park.
I will try to stop by the EMC Chamber of Commerce tomorrow and take some better pics of the maps that are posted there. The ones on-line are blurry an very hard to read.
Any question or requests you guys want me to ask while i'm there post em' and ill ask.
What is Dueling Dragons?
