Theme park to rival Disneyland to open in the UK by 2022

A theme park set to rival Disneyland could be open within five years and the good news is: We won’t have to travel across the Atlantic to visit.

Paramount hopes to build a 50-ride theme park near Dartford, Kent, costing around £3.5billion. That’s a lot of zeros.

It would be twice the size of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and would also house a 2,000 seat cinema.

According to the proposed theme park’s local newspaper it would attract 50,000 people a day and would be inspired by Paramount films, BBC productions and Aardman Animations (Wallace and Gromit world? Yes please!).

The park, proposed for Kent, will include nods to Paramount’s most iconic films like Mission: Impossible, Star Trek and The Godfather.

The project is still in the planning stage, but they hope that it will get government approval for the site on the Swanscombe peninsula with work starting in 2019.
