Plans are underway in England to open a Disneyland-style theme park which would attract well around 50,000 tourists. Sitting on a 872-acre entertainment complex, the London Paramount Entertainment Resort (or just London Paramount) is England’s answer to Disneyland and located near the located near Ebbsfleet International station, on the Eurostar route between London and Paris.
Owned by the London Resort Company Holdings (LRCH) and financed by Kuwait’s Al-Humaidi family, the theme part and entertainment precinct which is estimated to cost multibillion pounds would be located on the Swanscombe Peninsula in Kent and have attractions modelled around Paramount Pictures, BBC Worldwide shows and Aardman animations. Attractions based on various films owned or distributed by these companies are expected to feature.
When completed, the London Paramount Entertainment Resort will be twice the size of the Olympic Park and home to a large indoor water park, theatres, live music venues, cinemas, rides and restaurants – along with about 5,000 hotel rooms. Themed lands in the park include Adventure Isle, Land of Legends, Cartoon Circus, Starfleet Command, Action Square, Port Paramount and Entertainment City.
Although still subject to some final approvals, the proposed theme park is due to open by Spring/Summer 2021 and estimated to bring around 27,000 jobs to the area.
