Hey Mom... maybe Earthquest will be built, and maybe it won't, but does it ever cross your mind, how stupid you will look being served up a big plate of crow, if indeed it does? If all you can do is make accusations and spread negativity, please do us a favor and SHUT UP! You seem to think you have some special insight and that you're doing us a service, but I for one, have been sick of your crap for a long time now.

Don Allen Holbrook's bosom buddy Frank McCrady is up to his dirty tricks again. The East Montgomery County Improvement District meeting was scheduled for Thursday October 10th at 6:30. The meeting is being held tonight at 5:30. Why is McCrady trying to keep the meeting dates and times secret from the taxpayers? Will there be honest disclosure as to the status of the EarthQuest international destination, mega theme park? The option to repurchase the land after the long secret bankruptcy expires in 2 months.

"What about EarthQuest?

The developers of EarthQuest, Contour Entertainment, made a presentation to the EMCID board at their December meeting showing that they are progressing along.

EMCID required for Contour Entertainment to meet three requirements including hiring a qualified investment firm, purchase the land where EarthQuest is set to be situated and present an investment package proposal detailing fundraising and efforts leading them to meet their financial goal.

“We are hopeful with all of the progress that has been made with Contour Entertainment. They have hired the investment firm, Stern Brothers & Co., which is a great sign because of a firm would not put their name to a project is it could not be successful,” McCrady added.

The land where EarthQuest will be and the surrounding properties were purchased for $11.85 million by Friendswood Development in April of 2012.

According to McCrady, Contour Entertainment has signed an exclusive agreement with Friendswood which allows Contour to have control of the land through December 2013."

I wonder if Contour got dumped by Stern Bros. & Co. or can no longer pay them??? The Houston office rep of Stern Bros. had no idea about the status of the project at all. I will keep asking the tough questions and hounding this bunch!

The repurchase option on the property designated for EarthQuest expires in 10 weeks. When are we going to get an official statement from Frank McCrady or his favorite spokesperson, Don Allen Holbrook? The taxpayers have every right to know the status of this project that could leave them with $21,000,000.00 in bonds to satisfy.

Judge Sadler's crystal ball works perfectly. The "taxpayer tragedy" is in exactly the same place it was almost a year ago. Don Allen Holbrook is again melting down online and likely destroying any chance EarthQuest could have of securing financing. Who would touch this with a ten foot pole?

The Earthquest project's most vocal spokesperson is at it again!


That is certainly one way to get investors' attention!

"East Montgomery County Improvement District President Frank McCrady said there was nothing new to report on the status of the EarthQuest project at a board meeting Aug. 20."

Don Allen Holbrook says:
Just as a footnote... the project that this woman is so spun up about is back on track again and moving towards a close of first phase financing... so just because she doesn't agree or like the timing the financial markets really don't pay much attention to armchair financiers. In the end, EMCID made the correct adjustments to get the EarthQuest project back on track and bTW they utilized the advice and team I researched and recommended to get the project back on track and acknowledged me in written letter of appreciation for my efforts on their massive project. That is the official record from the client themselves.


According to public land records, Contour has not purchased the property, though Don Allen Holbrook claimed in May 2011 that Contour was "now" buying that property. There are just 14 weeks left on the 18 month option to repurchase with the price having gone up every 6 months on said property. It's down to the wire. Where is that letter Holbrook bragged about and just where is that deed for the property????

On a separate note but related to groth in Montgomery County, does anyone know what they are building next to the ballfields behind the Tax and DPS offices? They are piling up a lot of dirt on two side and already have the sewage lines installed under what looks like a very large soon to be parking lot.

I hope grand Texas makes good use of all that land. Hopefully we will have good thrill rides. Fingers crossed.

Chris Brown, Don Holbrook, and Frank McCrady's next quest for earth needs to be a proper burial ground for that 7 yr. long dino-disaster called EarthQuest. Seems as though Joe and his construction crew, The Lunchpails, are currently packing their lunchpails in anticipation of the biggest construction job to ever hit New Caney......Grand Texas.

So, we are going to have two parks? Grand Texas & Earthquest?

Comment by: on Jul. 26th, 2013 - 7:50pm
Now that the land is being cleared, what is the projected open date?

Comment by: Its going to be built on Jul. 11th, 2013 - 10:10am
This is going to put New Caney on the map! Add jobs, increase tax revenue, create an entire new tourism industry for the area. Sorry you don't like it but with the Grand Parkway coming in, its just a matter of time before everything starts growing in the area.

People complain about Eathquest NOT being built and now people are complaining about Grand Texas being built. (With no public Money) I am really sorry you feel this way but give it a chance! I think it will really help the area.

If you do move I hope you find what you are looking for, but I bet property values are about to sky rocket once the park is built.

This theme park in New Caney will bring nothing but more trash to are community.
I am selling my home and moving, East Montgomery does not need my tax revenue any more, 1.8 million visitors a year at the park!!!!!!

Grand Texas just closed on the land at 242 and 59 - see article in Houston Chronicle. They plan to build a Texas themed park. This is not the same as Earthquest which is about 3 miles south of this location.

That's a pretty broad spectrum. I talked to one this morning standing on the street corner holding a bucket of change and a cardboard sign that said "Will work for food"......yeah, right

Comment by: update on Jun. 29th, 2013 - 1:20am
Contour still has no funding...but still "talking with potential investors."
