The £3.5 Billion London Disneyland-Like Resort Has Had A Massive Change

We've all been very excited about the new 'Disneyland-like' resort that's set to open in Dartford.

'Paramount London' planned to boast 50 attractions including rides, rollercoasters, hotels, food shops, an indoor water park, nightclubs, bars and retail outlets.

It was even expected to have a 2,000-seat theatre to put on West End quality performances.

The plan was to have different sections themed on different genres that Paramount Pictures have released, which if you weren't sure, is a lot.

To name a few, Mission: Impossible, Star Trek,The Godfather, Titanic, The Transformers and Iron Man franchises all exist via Paramount.

The different parts of the park were supposed to include a cartoon circus, Starfleet Command, Action Square, Port Paramount and Entertainment City.

Sadly, the deal between the developers and Paramount has collapsed.

Luckily for us, the team behind the park are still planning to go ahead and to be fair it seems like it might be even better.

Humphrey Percy, chief executive of London Resort Company Holdings, said: "What it means is we won't have the name Paramount above the door. We are not looking for the equivalent of Paramount. We are not looking for a new studio.

"We are committed to going ahead - nothing has changed on that score.

"What it means in reality is that we will be able to talk to other brands, stories, films and television programmes. It just gives us the freedom to work with other partners."

The team behind the park believe as many as 50,000 people could stroll through the gates every day, and an entry ticket is expected to set you back £57.

Earlier this year, Humphrey said: "The stage we are going through now is absolutely focused on the development consent order process. We are working with the railways to make sure there's sufficient capacity.

"We're also considering having a boat from central London or Greenwich which will all be part of the attraction."

Fingers crossed this goes ahead.

In the meantime, there's always Disneyland...

God bless you, Mickey Mouse.
