‘UK Disneyland’ new image gives sneak peek of rides and film-themed attractions
Take a sneak peek at the London Resort dubbed UK’s Disneyland which will have incredible themed rides.
Theme park fans can get a new sneak peek at a huge theme park dubbed the UK’s answer to Disneyland.
The London Resort in Kent will be the size of 136 Wembley Stadiums, and is set to offer heaps of immersive and themed rides and attractions.
Here is a first look at a brand new aerial rendering of the park, which offers a teasing glimpse at some of the rides, from rollercoasters to helter skelters.
The park’s creators are currently remaining tight-lipped about exactly what rides will be on offer, but last year the resort signed a deal with Paramount Pictures, so we’re betting on a Hollywood theme.

Huge £450million film-themed attraction to open in UK where James Bond was filmed (Although it hasn’t yet revealed which films will feature, the studios are well known for classics such as The Godfather and the Italian Job, as well as franchises including Mission: Impossible).
But that’s not all.
With BBC Studios and ITV Studios also partners with the London Resort, we can’t wait to see what else they have planned for UK theme park goers.
The resort has teamed up with Paramount Pictures.
The area of land is currently an industrial site located near the areas of Gravesham, Dartford and Thurrock. The total land spans around 872 acres.
The resort’s planners recently held a public consultation to showcase how the area will be transformed into the new theme park.
Universal’s terrifying new Jurassic World rollercoaster will be one of its fastest yet. The consultation, which lasted eight weeks, reached over 120,000 members of the public.
It showed that 73% of people support the London Resort’s approach to the environment and biodiversity, which includes enhancing local habitats to continue to support the wildlife that reside around the site.
It’s been dubbed the UK’s answer to Disneyland. Meanwhile, 65% of those who took part in the consultation agreed that the London Resort will benefit the local area in the longer term.
Mission Impossible is another franchise we’re hoping features. PY Gerbeau, the London Resort’s CEO said: “Getting to this point has not been easy. But the public has responded overwhelmingly in favour and for that we are deeply grateful. We will go through all of the feedback and use it to help inform our approach and further develop our proposals.
“But there is no doubting, that our aim of creating one of the most exciting entertainment destinations in the world, here in the UK, has taken another big step towards becoming a reality. We now look forward to submitting our DCO application later this year.”
The resort will be submitting its DCO application later this year.

“You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don’t try to forget the mistakes, but you don’t dwell on it. You don’t let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.” – Johnny Cash

SOMETHING TO LAUGH ABOUT
Bugs Bunny is an animated cartoon character, created in the late 1930s by Leon Schlesinger Productions (later Warner Bros. Cartoons) and voiced originally by Mel Blanc. Bugs is best known for his starring roles in the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies series of animated short films, produced by Warner Bros. Though a similar character called Happy Rabbit debuted in the WB cartoon Porky’s Hare Hunt (1938) and appeared in a few subsequent shorts, the definitive character of Bugs is widely credited to have made his debut in director Tex Avery’s Oscar-nominated film A Wild Hare (1940).
Bugs is an anthropomorphic gray and white rabbit or hare who is famous for his flippant, insouciant personality. He is also characterized by a Brooklyn accent, his portrayal as a trickster, and his catch phrase “Eh…What’s up, doc?”. Due to Bugs’ popularity during the golden age of American animation, he became not only an American cultural icon and the official mascot of Warner Bros. Entertainment, but also one of the most recognizable characters in the world. He can thus be seen in the older Warner Bros. company logos.
Since his debut, Bugs appeared in more than 150 cartoons produced between 1940 and 1964. He has also starred in feature films, compilations, TV series, music records, comics, video games, award shows, amusement park rides, and commercials. He has also appeared in more films than any other cartoon character, is the 9th most-portrayed film personality in the world, and has his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
