Today’s Daily Star “exclusively” reveals that Chilean tourist bosses are planning to turn the country’s San José Mine into a theme park. The tabloid reports:
The Chilean Tourist Board now aims to turn the mine site into a money-spinning theme park. They are also set to offer adventure holidays including a trip underground on the rescue capsule that brought the 33 to safety.
No decision has been made on when it could be opened but a spokesman for Turismo Chile said: “We think many people will be attracted. There is great tourist potential.
But, unusually for an exclusive, the story wasn’t followed up by the world’s media. In fact, as a quick Google reveals, the only other site to have carried the story was the suggestively named The Spoof.
One only wonders why the Star didn’t also cover the news that a Chilean Miner Diet book is in the works after the 30 miners “collectively lost 750kg” in two months.
