The Red Sea Astrarium (RSA) is a themed entertainment resort planned for Aqaba, Jordan. The 184-acre facility will be designed and produced by Rubicon Group Holding (RGH) and feature a Star Trek attraction courtesy of Paramount Recreation.
Looking to the future while celebrating the heritage of the region’s past civilisations, the themed entertainment destination will feature an array of technologically advanced attractions, upscale accommodation, theatrical productions, after dark spectaculars and unique dining and shopping experiences.
The project, which is billed as a milestone in the development of tourism in Jordan, will also serve as a model for “green energy,” incorporating state-of-the-art renewable technologies and hosting a “future” pavilion where businesses, students and visitors can learn about alternative energy sources.
The Star Trek attraction is described as a “multi-sensory 23rd Century experience culminating with a state-of-the art space-flight adventure.” It will be the first Star Trek themed entertainment venue outside the United States. The complete RSA development is expected to generate employment for more than 500.
