I'm currently working on a website for this offline called Mesozoic World: Dinosaur Park and will get it online asap. I'm also working on sculpts that are to be made into animatronics at a later date including 1/1 scale models. No land is at hand yet, that will be looked into at a later time when the website is going. Right now, I want to experiment with animatronics.
couple of things about the name i feel that park is way over used every dino place iv seen and gone to has park or dinosaur or world in it. And no one other then people in the know, know what Mesozoic is. i think if u really wanna do something that will blow all the other roadside dino parks out of the water u got to think beyond what everyone else is. lets face it JP is the top dog and the only way to out do that is to not think like them and everyone else or ul just be a roadside stop. i think Prehistoric Reserve would be a good one. Everyone thinks of Dinos with Prehistoric and it would be more of a Reserve then just a park or zoo.

Interesting posts there guys...loving the new names! I actually have no idea yet where the best location for this place would be. I'm going to use a small piece of land (hired probably) to set up some mock up paddocks for my test animatronics and create some videos for the website. From this I expect to gain attention from people in this line of work who may be able to advise or maybe invest in the project and take it further.
Yes, I too think Mesozoic World: Dinosaur Reserve sounds way better.
maybe you didnt understand what i was trying to say i was saying Prehistoric Reserve sounded better. 1. Nobody really knows what Mesozoic is (at least kids who is the main person you want to think of since its a park for kids) 2. World and dinosaur is way overused every other place uses it in there name and if you wanna get past being a roadside park you got to think beyond everybody else. 3. Prehistoric is a time period which everyone thinks of when it comes to dino's and isnt as overused as the others 4. When people think of reserve's they think of animals but not like a zoo of them being locked up. Reserve's are more open and free roaming
Although you're correct about "dinosaur" being used by plentyful it still is something that people recognize. While "prehistoric" is also a good name use it might confuse some. With the name "dinosaur" people instantly know what they can expect. Although I do agree with your idea of using "Prehistoric Reserve" with "Mesozoic World"(yes, I get that you don't like the latter, thank you very much).
If one wishes to exceed other parks that goes way beyond just the name, just to add. Supersaur will basically have to do something with his animatronics that approach the Walking With Dinosaurs stage adaptation in functionality.

and how soon are we looking at till we get to see anything in the form of a site
I'm aiming to get the site up and running before Xmas. It may include a forum too.
I intend to go way beyond what anyone else has done with animatronics for their dinosaur parks and exhibitions. I expect it to be expensive, but realism is everything to me and I'd put into the models everything I can. I also want very long run cycles so they don't appear to be repeating their moves. Once I start on the dino animatronics, I will look into the programming side of things and see what can be achieved with todays tech!
???ive didnt know that that was an restaurant. oh well i guess you find out something new every day . the only downside to asking them is that theyre eletronic dinos probaly repeat the same cycle every 2 minets just like the elephants at the rain forest cafe do .

We arent willing to murder the guilty but yet we slay the innocent - unknown
1.) I stand by the Dinosaur being to used and overdone. Plus its limited, if it still being planned to be having modern animals (Alligator, turtle, some birds). As where with prehistoric that blankets all of them. 2.) If people are going to get confused with prehistoric then kiss mesozoic good bye. Most kids know what prehistoric is and think of dinos. kids and most people dont learn or know mesozoic. 3.) if one is looking to exceed other parks u got to start with a good name cause to start thats all u got. if investors see blah blah dino park in the inbox or looking for a meeting they will turn it away.

Some great points there. Here're a few questions I have:
1). If I'm to come up with a 'concrete' name for the park (even just for the website), I wondered if it would be neccessary to discuss it with a professional who'd let me in on some points about a useable name that I would never had thought of by myself. By that I mean is there more to a business name than just having a good fitting name (if that makes any sense)?
2). I'm not sure yet what type of park it would be. I had always wanted it to be a realistic dinosaur reserve featuring incredible never-seen-before animatronics, but have been told by friends that no matter how realistic they are... people would get bored looking at grazing Trikes or herding Parasaurs unless they were actually real. As much fun as JP: The Ride attraction is, I didn't want that kind of thing myself, but something more real to the visitor. If wandering around paddocks of animatronic animals going about their business would seem a bore to some, maybe it could be made more exciting (but still keeping 'real') if say, there was a Supercroc swimming around a visitor barge, or a close T-rex encounter where people actually feel exposed/scared by the experience of being near one (unseen at first). I'm sure certain enclosures or rides could be put together that would create a lot of thrills, scares and memorable experiences but still allowing the park to keep its reserve theme.
