Detailed plans for a luxury underground doomsday village complete with golf courses and spas have been revealed in Texas.
Trident Lakes is a $300million development in the small city of Ector, Texas, where investors are plotting to create the subterranean world over 700 acres of land.
They plan to build enough bunkers for 1,000 people and accompany them with luxury amenities including an equestrian center, gun range, and several white sand lagoons.
The complex will be signposted above ground by a massive fountain with a statue of Poseidon towering 50ft in the air, making it visible from Highway 65.

Developers believe they have tapped into a gap in the market for wealthy Texans who are eager to prepare for the worst.
‘The initial perception is that it’s defined as a doomsday scenario.
‘I’m trying to change the perception to a long-term sustainable community, with the concept of a 200-year community.
‘We’re not looking at just putting all our residents underground; we’re looking to put together a beautiful place to live that’s also secure,’ said James O’Connor, CEO of Dallas-based Vintuary Holdings, which represents the collection of investors backing the project.
