Finally confirmed, The London Resort has revealed a “next-generation” theme park coming to the United Kingdom! The new theme park will include six lands in the first phase on the 535-acre site and will be in partnership with the BBC, ITV Studios and Paramount Pictures!
Following the previous announcement with EDF Energy promises The London Resort to be the most “sustainable, major theme park destination in the world”. This is believed to be the first for the global tourism industry as the theme park in the United Kingdom aims to achieve a Net Zero emissions goal!
Alongside the recent announcement, The London Resort also released four visuals promising “next-generation” rides and unique experiences for people to enjoy when the park opens in 2024!
PY Gerbeau, Chief Executive of London Resort Company Holdings (LRCH) promises guests a “first-class theme park” containing “all-new, immersive and interactive technologies and experiences”, first in the world! Not only will this theme park be a “world-class leisure destination” but it will also be “one of the most sustainable theme parks on the planet”. Gerbeau said that the company has three guidelines when it comes to developing the attractions; firstly, “innovation” to not copy what is out there but to create an immersive experience like never before. Secondly, “relevance” to think about the guests “of 2024, not today”. Lastly, “flexibility” to create a park that will “evolve and adapt easily” to meet the needs of the guests!
The London Resort promises to be one of the “most ambitious theme park projects ever in Europe” and it will be the first of its kind since Disneyland Paris opened in 1992! The London Resort will be a two-park resort with its first gates opening in 2024 and the second park opening within 2029 (around 5 years) with 70% of attractions to be undercover.
The six lands of The London Resort, theme park in the United Kingdom!
Guests will enter the London Resort via the grand plaza which will lead guests through “The High Street” full of shops, restaurants, hotels, a Convention Centre and a first-class waterpark.
Guests will then make their way into The Studios, set to be a “gritty, modern-day warehouse” with thrills containing “big, blockbuster features”. Full of “explosive action, high-octane car chases and high-stakes espionage”.
Follow through to The Woods, featuring an enchanted realm where the lines between reality and fantasy dissolve! Here, guests of all ages will find themselves in the heart of a storybook full of adventures based upon bedtime stories, fables and fairy tales!
From The Woods, take a trip into The Kingdom! A world full of swords, sorcery, dragons and legends- the essence of England with threatening and imposing castles shrowded in mystical Arthurian legends!
To the north of The Kingdom lies The Isles a land filled with giant creatures, mythical beasts and adventures, featuring magnificent “next-generation” thrills amidst jaw-dropping architecture!
Now to turn to something different, guests will find themselves in The Jungle. Full of ancient ruins with hidden secrets and mysteries from “long-lost Mesoamerican civilisation”. Transporting guests of all ages and encouraging the inquisitive explorers to emerge!
The final land is Starport dedicated to futuristic experiences, alien encounters and big thrill rides! Set in a 23rd-century landing zone, promising thrilling science-fiction adventures that are out of this world, making guests question the impossible possible!
