I want to go to Poseidon Mystery Island! [Nov. 20th, 2007|12:15 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Let me nerd out on something here real quick -

I have been following this place online for the past year or so - it opens next year - I want to go there SO BAD!

Poseidon Mystery Island

The website is a little flashy and hard to navigate, but I've waded through it (no pun intended) and it looks so neat. A beautiful, amazing undersea resort. It looks so awesome, oh man! Ahhh!

But at $30,000 a WEEK that just ain't happening any time soon =P

Here are some more articles about it:

oh!! i 've been to that site! i was seriously geeking out over it too. when i read about it before, it was still a couple years from being done. is it actually open now? (i guess i could have actually READ the links, but i got all excited when i saw what it was :P)
i wonder if you could just go have dinner there instead of actually staying. it would probly still be a couple grand. i'd do it tho!

hey, i have a question about your last post. the wallpaper in the background, is that just a background you use for photographing your paintings or is that actually wallpaper? because if so, it's SUPER cool :)

Isn't it awesome? It opens next year, and they're starting to take reservaions in March!

It's just a printed background, so you don't see the blank white of my scanner, hehe - although I'm thinking about getting a similar wallpaper.

speaking of cool things at the bottom of the sea, i saw this on 'blue planet' last week and thought it was pretty much the coolest thing ever.

Aaaah! I loved that, I saw it too and have been babbling about it all week! It was so creepy to see.

I'm obsessed with deep-sea exploration. One of my other "When I win the super uber billion dollar lottery" wishes is to have a custom Phoenix 1000 luxury sub built by US Submarines - here:

$78 Million though, lol - ouch! And I'd need a crew to navigate it. But still....

US Subs is actually some of the brainpower & design behind Poseidon Mystery Island, too!

Matt would be in your crew! He's obsessed with deep sea exploration (and outer space exploration).

Yeah, that's a bit nutty. Maybe the concept will catch on and there will be some budget versions in the future, lol.

Paint more and faster? I'll try!! ;P

HOLY SCHMOLY! THAT IS COOL! A dream at $30,000 though. I could only imagine what it would be like to fall asleep with such a view. Amazing!

Oh yes, I have Hydropolis bookmarked as well! I'm hoping that the concept catches on and becomes a reality (with a reality based price, lol).

I really would love to go to Dubai - they are really coming up with some bizarrely wonderful high-end tourism & luxury living ideas lately.....

I have seen something like that before....The Lost city or something... or Atlantis. Not sure what it was called.
The underwater theme is amazing, I am such a water baby!
