A few years ago Inside the Magic reported on a 535-acre theme park resort planned for the UK. And just last month, we reported that more information, including a map of the theme park, was revealed.

However, it looks as though even more information has just been unveiled!

According to the new plans, The London Resort, located in Swanscombe, Kent, will include four hotels with a total of 3,500 rooms, as well as “dozens of rides, attractions, entertainment, eSports and conference venues, across two theme parks”.

The resort’s website states:

When complete, it will be three times larger than any other park in the UK. Two theme parks and a resort water park will be set over 535 acres, the equivalent of 136 Wembley Stadiums. A bespoke entertainment district, including the provision of 3,500 hotel rooms, will be devoted to a full-suite of hospitality experiences. There will be something for every generation and food and drink for every taste.

But it’s the rides and the experiences which will take The London Resort to another level. Brands from across literature, television, music, film and entertainment, are being hand-picked to create unique experiences never previously imagined.

The London Resort recently signed a deal with Paramount, allowing the rides and attractions to be based on the studio’s movies and TV shows!

The London Resort is set to create 9,000 direct and 20,000 indirect jobs within the first year alone. Over time, these jobs are set to rise to 17,000 and over 35,000 respectively within the following 15 years.

The developer recently said when describing the plans, “When complete, it will be three times larger than any other park in the UK. Two theme parks and a resort water park will be set over 535 acres, the equivalent of 136 Wembley Stadiums.”

He continued, “A bespoke entertainment district, including the provision of 3,500 hotel rooms, will be devoted to a full-suite of hospitality experiences. There will be something for every generation and food and drink for every taste. But it’s the rides and the experiences which will take The London Resort to another level. Brands from across literature, television, music, film and entertainment, are being hand-picked to create unique experiences never previously imagined.”

If everything goes according to plan, construction and work will begin in 2022 and an opening date is slated for 2024.

It is important to keep in mind that this has no connection to The Walt Disney Company. It is currently being called ‘the UK Disneyland‘ as it closely resembles something that Disney would do.
