Sneak peek at £3.5billion Kent theme park – rollercoasters, waterpark and hotel plans
The entrance to The London Resort will be via a grand plaza that leads visitors and hotel guests through ‘The High Street’, packed full of shops, restaurants, hotels, a Convention Centre and the waterpark.
Visitors will start their journey in The Studios, a gritty, modern-day warehouse district that practically roars with the exhilarating thrills of big, blockbuster features. The park’s creators cite “explosive action, high-octane car chases and high-stakes espionage” as part of the experience.
To the north lies The Woods, which makes the most of fairytale imagery and “bedtime stories”.
From the Woods, the journey continues through the ages into The Kingdom, an immersive realm of swords, sorcery, dragons & legend based on Englands myths and legends.
The land of The Isles will be made up of giant creatures, beasts and adventures. Developers promise “fantastic jaw-dropping architecture will combine with magnificent rides and 21st-century technology.”
Moving onwards, guests can find themselves entering The Jungle, an array of mystery and treetops.
Finally, Starport promises to be a “23rd-century landing zone”, boasting sci-fi adventures and “out of this world” possibilities.
The resort is being built in partnership with the BBC, ITV Studios and Paramount Pictures.
It will also have its own dedicated access road from the A2, as well as easy transport links to Ebbsfleet International station.
The enquiry and validation process for the park’s approval is expected to take between 12 and 18 months.
“We have always said our ambition is to build much more than just a theme park,” commented CEO of London Resort Company Holdings PY Gerbeau.
“It will be a beacon of world-class entertainment and experiences within a world-leading sustainable environment.
“We are not there yet by a long way and we, of course, are very much looking forward to working with the Planning Inspectorate over the coming months.
“But from where we were not even eighteen months ago, today is a game-changer and a very special day to celebrate.”
