London Resort Theme Park Shares New Images And Partners With Paramount Pictures
The London Resort, which has been dubbed 'UK Disneyland', will stretch across a 535-acre site - the equivalent to 136 Wembley stadiums - and will include hotel accommodation, a water park, two theme parks and places to eat. The images show an artist's impression of how it's all going to look when it's finally open to the public.
According to the park's website, the rides and experiences 'will take The London Resort to another level', with promises of 'brands from across literature, television, music, film and entertainment' which will be 'hand-picked to create unique experiences never previously imagined'.
Sounds good, eh?
The multi-billion pound park will be situated just 17 minutes from central London and will be three times the size of any other theme park in the UK.
Construction of the park is set to kick off in 2021 and it plans to be open to the public by 2024.
