Iv just been looking at Paramounts plans in Spain in 2015 and discovered this video:

http://trekmovie.com/2012/06/02/grou...k-attractions/

(see the english version)

Now if you watch the 2nd half of this video which shows the rides, lands, ideas etc do you not get a de ja vu here that this is a copy of DLRP?

I could see it getting alot of UK visitors like the other UK theme parks but I don't really see people from Europe going there like they go to DLP.

Spain would be different as you can make a holiday around it like people do France but that part of the UK

Also as it would be priced in £s it wouldn't be advantageous for us paying in Euros especially with the economy

I did read somewhere (I think it was DM) that it will have a ten minute rail link to London so I do think the location would be handy for visitors coming in from Europe or visitors from London looking for a day out.

Apparently they've got a land based on Rango

They'll have to do a bit better than that to steel customers away from DLP.

Paramount own some great rights, if this park in the UK comes to fruition I hope they'll give us something a bit better than Rango!

Even without the fast link it's only a 40 minute train ride from London so very accessible for the millions of tourists who visit London every year. It's also only 2 hours away from the Harry Potter Studio Tour, so there's a lot within a short distance for a visitor to experience.


While we love Disney, and obviously many others do too, there are people who prefer or just like Paramount stuff.

Brands such as Shrek, Tin Tin, Star Trek, Rango, Kung Fu Panda, Mission Impossible, GI Joe, Spongebob Squarepants etc.. will give a whole load of opportunities for attractions as an alternative to Disney.

I really hope this goes ahead, as not only will it bring more tourism to the UK but Disneyland Paris will strive to improve too. It's a win win situation.

Disneyland Paris - Rival Park

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-kent-19867695

An interesting read... though, to me - no park will ever match disney due to the fact after being to such a place I now find any of the UK theme parks very plain and just generally miserable....

It will be interesting to see if it goes ahead, whilst the roads around the area aren't brilliant they may improve them if the area is developed. As others have said it already has great train links with the High speed service & Eurostar.

It would certainly improve the area, the only down side would be they would definately need to build a new hospital as the delightful Darenth Valley cannot cope now, hate to see what happens with expanding the area

It wouldn't affect my opinion on going to Disney as I live about 20 mins away from Dartford so it wouldn't be a holiday for me.

As this area is something we'd be looking at moving to in 2-4 years time Im all for this, we are gradually trying to move South (due to our love of crossing the channel) and hopefully like someone has said with the need for better healthcare Id be able to pick up a job after Iv qualified...

On a more serious note, the developers must be aware of the close proximity to Disneyland and must know that this is going to have to be something that can rival it if it aims to attract anywhere close to Disneylands visitors numbers. I like the idea of the shopping malls and visitor centres alongside the park but does that make it more of a 'small' theme park and another large retail park?
