Paramount theme park - dubbed 'UK's Disneyland' is on course to be built by 2022
March 14, 2017
£3.5 billion UK Disneyland would create Inspection jobs.
It will have rides, rollercoasters, a theatre, retail and food outlets, hotels and a nightclub - and will be built on an 872-acre site.
The Paramount theme park will cost £3.5 billion, be built in Dartford, Kent, and will include 50 attractions and rides, as well as a 2,000-seat theatre with West End quality shows.
Paramount has produced films such as Titanic, Transformers and Iron Man. BBC featured rides could be based on the Doctor Who series.
An indoor water park which would be one of the largest in Europe is also planned. The 110 acre theme park would also contain a 2,000 seat theatre and 5,000 hotel rooms.
Around 40,000 visitors are expected daily, so there would also be space for 14,000 cars and ticket packages that will combine travel and entry costs to promote the use of public transport. To combat the British weather, approximately 70% of the park is expected to be undercover. When fully developed the park is expected to create over 30,000 jobs.
Government development consent will be requested in November with work starting in early 2018. The park will take over 5 years to complete.
