London Resort reveals first look at upcoming theme park
POSTED 09 Dec 2019 . BY Lauren Heath-Jones
The London Resort will feature IP from Paramount Pictures, the BBC and ITV
London Resort Holdings Company (LRCH), operator of the upcoming London Resort theme park and entertainment destination in Swanscombe, Kent, has released new concept artwork showcasing the first phase of the 535-acre resort.

The park, which has been described as one of the most 'ambitious theme park projects in Europe', will be the first development of its kind to open in the region since Disneyland Paris in 1992. It is expected to open in 2024 and will consist of six lands: The High Street, The Studios, The Woods, The Kingdom, The Isles, The Jungle and The Starport.

Guests will enter the resort via The High Street – a plaza with a range of shops, restaurants and hotels, as well as a convention centre and a waterpark – before making their way to The Studios, a warehouse district offering thrills and high-speed car chases.

Aimed at a younger audience, The Woods will be an enchanted fairytale land that "takes visitors on an adventure through the pages of a storybook", while The Kingdom, inspired by Arthurian legend, is an immersive realm of swords, sorcery, castles and dragons.

A fantastical land with giant creatures and mythical beasts, The Isles will combine 'jaw-dropping' architecture with technology to create memorable rides and experiences. The Jungle will take guests back in time to discover the ancient ruins of a long-lost Mesoamerican civilisation.

The final land, The Starport, will be dedicated to big thrill rides, and will give guests a glimpse into the future and bring them face to face with aliens.

The park will feature IPs from Paramount Pictures, after reaching a new deal with the film studio back in July, as well as the BBC and ITV.

"We're creating a destination that maximises all the new immersive and interactive technologies and experiences in the world," said PY Gerbeau, CEO of LRCH.

"We won't just be creating a world-class leisure destination, it will also be one of the most sustainable theme parks on the planet."

The park has also recently announced a partnership with EDF Energy that aims to make the London Resort the most sustainable major theme park destination in the world. The partnership will see the resort pursue a Net Zero emissions goal, in what is believed to be a first for the global tourism industry.
