JURASSIC Park could be roaring its way to the Mijas Hippodrome.
The horse race track, looks set to receive a prehistoric make-over after Mijas mayor Antonio Sanchez revealed the plans at a tourism fair in Madrid.
Sanchez explained that the project – spearheaded by company Jurapark – would be officially unveiled on February 19.
He added that three possible locations make up the shortlist.
However, project sources have hinted that the Hippodrome is the most likely site for the venture – earmarked for completion in mid 2011.
Jurapark – which has a similar dinosaur attraction in Poland – predicts the park would receive at least 500,000 visitors in its first year alone.
