Firm takes bite of T-Rex
Deal means dinosaur eatery can open at Disney World
BY SCOTT CARLSON Pioneer Press
Dinosaurs are extinct. But Golden Valley businessman Steven Schussler
is finding there's still plenty of life in the name Tyrannosaurus Rex.
Houston-based Landry's Restaurants Inc. said Monday it has bought an 80
percent stake in two restaurant concepts developed by Schussler's firm,
including "T-Rex: A Prehistoric Family Adventure.''
< The deal enables Schussler Creative Inc. to build a T-Rex restaurant
at Disney World in Orlando, Fla., with an expected opening in 2008.
T-Rex will feature food and fossils against the backdrop of simulated
prehistoric dinosaurs, steam, fire and ice. Customers visiting T-Rex
will be greeted by life-size animatronic dinosaurs placed among
cascading waterfalls, bubbling geysers and a fossil dig site.>
Features a raw bar, and you can butcher your own entrees, drive other
diners away from their meals, or rummage through the dumpsters.
