Mission Impossible and Star Trek to feature in Paramount's £2bn theme park development
POSTED 05 Nov 2014 . BY Tom Anstey
The Paramount theme park is now set to open in Q2 of 2020
New images for Paramount’s upcoming £2bn (US$3.2bn, €2.5bn) resort and theme park development have been unveiled as part of the second phase of consultation, showcasing a number of Paramount IPs set to feature.


Mission Impossible will feature in the park’s ‘Action Square’

In May, the development was classified as a project of national significance by the British government and has since been fast tracked to the second consultation phase. The new images reveal plans for Paramount-themed attractions including The Italian Job, Star Trek and Mission Impossible.


A Star Trek area will be prominently featured

Developers London Resort Company Holdings (LRCH) also revealed that Paramount London will not solely feature films made by Paramount and will emphasise both British films and Hollywood blockbusters.

“One of the key things with Paramount was their willingness to allow British intellectual property into the site as well,” said LRCH director, Fenlon Dunphy. “We are very adamant it will have an eclectic mix of stuff. We are very clear it has to have a British identity as well.

“We want to show [people at the consultation] how the plans are emerging. It won’t be the end game but will show how the process is developing.”


The resort’s ‘Entertainment City’

The public exhibition will take place over the next fortnight, looking for observations and feedback on the development, with five events to be held across Gravesham, Dartford, Thurrock and Maidstone. A revised timetable of plans for the project, set to open during Q2 of 2020, are on display, alongside a new transport system surrounding the resort.

The Paramount London Entertainment Resort will feature a theme park, waterpark, sports facilities, an entertainment street, staff training academy and 5,000 hotel rooms.
