A version of a Paramount theme park slated for just outside of London has been off and on again for decades now. However, this time it seems that we may finally see another major theme park complex open in 2024 called The London Resort. New concept art and a master plan was released today!
The London Resort will be the first of its kind to be built from the ground up in Europe since Disneyland Paris opened in 1992. In total, the site is 532 acres and has room for two theme parks, the second slated opening for 2029.
In total, there will be seven lands for the first park opening in 2024. Guests enter through High Street which is filled with shops, restaurants and even a water park. Next they can visit The Studio with attractions based on car chases (no specific intellectual properties have been confirmed for this park yet). The Woods will be focused on mythical creatures and focus on storybook tales.
The Kingdom is a throwback to Arthurian castles, dragons and sword fighting. The castle, seen in the photograph above, appears to have several water features and a few roller coasters in the background. The Isles will feature mythical beasts and giant creatures. The Jungle will feature ancient ruins of a long-lost Mesoamerican civilization. Finally, Starport will be the science fiction themed land of the park.
Overall, about 70% of the The London Resort’s first park will be indoors. Which is a smart move considering the area’s weather if they want to be a year round resort. We are excited (and hopeful) that this project continues to move forward and we get more specific info as we get closer to the opening in 2024!
