Paramount Theme Park planned for Kent

Plans have been announced for a movie-based theme park planned to open in Southern England by the end of the decade.

Under the guidance of London Resort Company Holdings, a Hollywood themed resort containing attractions based around Paramount Pictures licenses could open as soon as 2018.

The proposed 872-acre resort has been compared to Disneyland Paris in terms of attendance should it come to fruition. Along with a theme park (set to feature a wooden rollercoaster, arena and an advanced dark ride as headlining attractions), the development would also include Europe’s largest indoor waterpark, hotels, and a retail area comprising of restaurants, boutiques and a cinema.¬†Along with new social benefits, the resort would provide 27,000 jobs for the local area.

Should the park open, it will be the second attraction of it’s kind to open in the county in recent years – with Dreamland Margate set to reopen as a heritage amusement park in 2014.
