This would be massive for Dundee. Again showing the ambition and the high quality of not only the City of Discovery but its top notch inhabitants to attract something of such high calibre.

I, for one, would be extremely excited if this was to be given the green light.

I would also state that my guess for the location would be Camperdown Park due to the transport links, infrastructure and sheer size.

Sounds interesting, certainly the east coast's sunshine would make it the sensible place to put it. Would certainly take the bairn if it was built here.

Hope it goes ahead so I can tell folk I live East of Eden.

It has also been suggested that it may be on the riverside between the airport and Invergowrie. 

Where ever it goes it would be a welcome addition to Dundee. I'd love to see it happen.

Yeah, would make sense. That's pretty close to the Botanics so I'd assume there would be a tie with them and probably D&A College too.

Been to the one in Cornwall and it’s fucking shite. Imagine a zoo but it instead of animals, it’s just plants. 2/10.

It would be class if this goes ahead. Dundee already the up and coming city of Scotland, this really would be the cherry on the Dundee cake

The Dundee one will be f**k all like the Cornwall one apparently. None of this rainforest shite.

Probably a big greenhouse full of ganja.

Did you know places out Applecross way are a kind of temperate rainforest?

They won't be short of Botanists, going by the stench of it round Dryburgh.

Hope it happens. Would be another massive boost for Dundee.  Lots of space in Campy now that the golf course is no more.

Combine it with the new Dundee stadia, how many other teams are playing in a bi-orb?

Dundee FC leading the way, yet again.

Thank you.

I suppose it would be called Edens Park

Dundee is a zoo of neds so it might be a good fit.

I read that the one in Cornwall was planning to open another dome with a desert landscape inside but the funding fell through. That could be the plan for Dundee. TBH a dome full of sand sounds pretty boring.

I'd go for a nuclear winter theme myself. Recreate the second half of Threads in a huge polythene tent. The staff could dress up as traffic wardens with assault rifles and the cafeteria could serve up grilled rat.
