First pictures released of London theme park that’s ‘UK’s answer to Disneyland’ set to open in 2025

New images which show the inside of the UK’s planned answer to Disneyland have been shared for the first time.

The London Resort, which is set to open in 2025, could be approved by the Government at some point this year.

The London Resort shared an artists impression of what the inside of the venue – which will be as big as 136 Wembley Stadiums – will look like.

Located in Kent, and sometimes referred to as “Paramount Kent”, it looks very much Game of Thrones-themed, where roller-coasters weave in and out of a giant castle, which has a fire breathing dragon on top reports the DailyStar.

There are also, what appear to be rivers of lava coming out of various parts of the castle, as hoards of visitors walk around.

It looks stunning

The image was accompanied by a new “work in progress” list for the year ahead.

They tweeted: “Revise opening date to 2025.

“Partner with dynamic and visionary IP (intellectual property) brands.

“Continue designing cutting edge unique experiences.

“Appreciate all the support.”

And, possibly hinting at the overall theme of the park, they tweeted “beware ‘hic sunt dracones'” which means “here be dragons” in Latin.

It’s thought the park could rival Disneyland

When complete, it will be three times larger than any other park in the UK – spanned across 535 acres.

Around 70 per cent of the attractions will be undercover to cope with the unpredictable English weather.

It plans to be the first operationally carbon neutral theme park, will deliver a net biodiversity gain and will create a green network of amenity areas and parkland to include areas of environmental enhancement and wildlife habitat creation beside the River Thames for local residents and resort guests.

If the plans are approved, it will be the first European development of its kind to be built from scratch since the opening of Disneyland Paris in 1992.

It was due to open in 2024, but because of complaints from Natural England, which listed it as a “Site of Special Scientific Interest”, it has now been delayed until 2025.
