A NEW image of the London Resort theme park shows the expansive attraction’s rollercoasters and rides.
The theme park, billed as one of the most ambitious theme park projects ever in Europe, hopes to open in 2024.
The new image is part of the planning application being submitted to the government today for the new attraction, which hopes to generate £50bn over the next 25 years, as well as create more than 50,000 jobs.
It will eventually be a two park resort, with the first gate opening in 2024 and the second expected in 2029, a decade from now.
When complete, it will be three times larger than any other park in the UK – spanned across 535 acres, the equivalent of 136 Wembley Stadiums.
Around 70 per cent of the attractions undercover to cope with the unpredictable English weather.
The resort will comprise of six different lands, influenced by its partnerships with the BBC, ITV Studios and Paramount Pictures.
The entrance to The London Resort will be via a grand plaza that leads visitors and hotel guests through ‘The High Street,’ featuring shops, restaurants, hotels and a waterpark.
Visitors can start their journey in The Studios, a gritty, modern-day warehouse district with blockbuster action movie features, including high-octane car chases and high-stakes espionage.
Just to the north lies The Woods, an enchanted realm that puts a fresh spin on well-known bedtime stories, fables and fairy tales.
Next to the Woods is The Kingdom, an immersive realm of swords, sorcery, dragons & legend based on legends from King Arthur’s England.
Then there is The Isles, a land of giant creatures, mythical beasts and adventures on high-tech rides, and The Jungle, which features ancient ruins of a mysterious long-lost Mesoamerican civilisation to keep young explorers occupied.
The final land called The Starport is a 23rd century landing zone dedicated to futuristic experiences, alien encounters and science-fiction rides.
There will also be more than 3,500 hotel rooms with two ferry terminals – one each side of the River Thames.
It isn’t the only exciting attraction opening in the UK in the next few years.
A new £100m Peak District resort hopes to open next year with an indoor activity park and hotels.
In Manchester, a £250m water park and spa will open by 2024.
