The £3.5 billion Paramount theme park dubbed 'UK's Disneyland' will open in Kent in 2022
It will have around 50 rides based on Paramount films and BBC shows and could attract up to 40,000 visitors a day
A huge £3.5 billion theme park that is being likened to 'the UK's Disneyland' will be open to visitors by 2022.The Paramount theme park will be built in Dartford, Kent, by Paramount film studios who make Hollywood movies like Zoolander, Anchorman and Mission Impossible.
The news site Essex Live has reported that the plans for the project will be sent to the government for approval in November and the company is confident that they will be approved.It's thought that the huge theme park could attract up to 40,000 visitors a day.They will be able to ride on an estimated 50 attractions inspired by Paramount films, as well as shows from the BBC and Aardman Animations, who made Wallace and Gromit and Shaun the Sheep.Humphrey Percy, group CEO of the project's parent company Kuwaiti European Holdings, told the Essex Live: "We have the financial backing to take us all the way through that process."
There had been doubts about whether the project would go ahead earlier in the year, when a -high-profile member of the team quit shortly after Chinese investors raised doubts over £100 million that they had pledged towards the build.But Humphrey says that they are committed and determined to make the project a reality.
Developers say the 872-acre tourist destination will create around 33,000 jobs.
There are no concrete plans for what rides will be built yet, but
zones mooted for the site include Adventure Isle, Land of
Legends, Cartoon Circus, Starfleet
Command, Action Square, Port Paramount and Entertainment City.
As well as the 50 rides, there are also plans for a 2,000-seat theatre, hotels, an exhibition space, several restaurants and a nightclub.It is thought that the cost of a day ticket will be £57 and there are plans to include the cost of public transport from central London in this, to encourage people to leave their cars at home.
