Plans for a spectacular $1.5 billion leisure destination to be built in Jordan's Aqaba have been revealed. The Red Sea Astrarium will have state-of-the-art entertainment attractions.

The project is expected to create more than 4,000 jobs for the local community.

The project will include four-world-class hotels, an expansive retail and dining district, a theatre that will bring globally renowned shows to Aqaba, a 4D cinema, an exhilarating water park and an entertainment district that includes 16 attractions - 15 designed by Rubicon Group Holding, an international group founded and headquartered in Jordan, and the 16th attraction based on Star Trek, the CBS-owned property designed by Paramount Pictures.

The Red Sea Astrarium (TRSA) will become a diverse leisure destination that is themed around the entertainment attractions drawing from the past, the present and the future of the region. The resort will also host the American Museum of Natural History's Silk Road Exhibition throughout its Hijazi Gardens.

The technology behind these attractions will catapult Jordan to the forefront for interactive experiences, including a global first for 4D inverted simulation.

The chief commissioner of Aqaba Special Economic Zone, Dr Kamel Mahadin, highlighted details of the resort that will make it the first of its kind in the world.

Dr Mahadin said: "A major goal in the design of The Red Sea Astrarium is to actively engage the local communities through training with on-site hospitality academies, job creation, promoting the length of a tourist's stay andencouraging repeat visitation. The entertainment resort will undeniably transform the Aqaba region and make it a high-end tourism hub for Jordan. It will do so whilst telling stories from our regional culture, integrating alternative energy sources and promoting the development of the entertainment industry in Jordan."
