The Aquapolis

By Deane Barker on October 3, 2003

The Aquapolis: I’d be so much more impressed if the passage quoted here (from their “Overview” page) didn’t contain five spelling and grammatical errors.

“The Aquapolis will be the worlds first underwater resort. Built at a cost of $1.3 billion, Aquapolis will be unlike anything on earth. Using state of the art underwater construction techniques and safety systems, The Aqupolis will include a submarine complex with a wide range of facilities, a luxery hotel, spa, restaurants…”

They even misspelled the name of the resort at one point. Pictures look cool, though. Bonus points if you can point out all five errors (one of them is debatable, so I’ll take four).



  1. Man, this is embarrassing…

    Two of those errors are mine. I mispelled “systems” and “restaurants,” not them. The site is in Flash, so I had to re-type.

    So you got three.

  2. Yes, I had the “Earth” thing too. I’ll let the “The” issue go because they’re counting it as part of the name of the resort, so “The Aquapolis” becomes the entire proper noun.

  3. Another case of poor web development and not-so-thorough platform testing; I can’t get the javascript to launch to take me past the first page. I guess Mac owners need not apply.
