  5. Actually the majority of the local population are in favour of the park, as their feedback studies on their website show. National government is pushing for it too, with the project being the first ‘Business or Commercial Project’ to be considered a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP) back in 2014.

    The site is actually incredibly well suited, thanks to Ebbsfleet International station on the HS1 out of London. This puts it 17 minutes from central London, in high speed trains to brownfield site ripe for development. Ebbsfleet also has trains through the channel tunnel to Europe, making it easier to get from other major cities like Paris, Brussels, and Amsterdam. It is also near the M25, the motorway hub around London. It is also on the river, which they plan to use as a transport route as well. No need to build an airport for this one, the international infrastrucure is already ready and sitting on the doorstep of the site.

    The weather is no more an issue than Disneyland Paris, but has the benefit of being far closer to it's associated city. London is nowhere near as cold and rainy as the stereotype suggests.

    New article about the project here: http://www.arabianbusiness.com/kuwaiti-backers-on-plans-make-3-6bn-london-theme-park-project-profitable-within-2-years-587753.html They are funding the project till after construction has started, which shows a great deal of a lot of confidence in it.

  6. London - majority of the local community are against the project

    Spain - everybody is pushing for the project from National Government to local people.

  7. The Kuwaiti investors - Owners of Ebbsfleet United, now I do not recall them playing Man U so think they are not Premier League, not sure how deep the investor pockets are but have good idea as I have worked for a Kuwaiti investment company, so would not expect funds to be readily available. The main driving force leaves the project, the site is ridiculous and inaccessible with poor infra structure and public transport, finally it rains a lot and is cold.

    Paramount Park Spain .

    Investors apparently almost there, park fully designed, great infrastructure right on a Motorway and next to a new airport. Sunny over 300 days per year, next to great beaches and flights form Europe at £100 return. Which would you invest in?

  8. The only thing Mickey Mouse is living in this over developed, over congested, over populated area. Developers are getting richer and locals sicker from pollution and stress from constantly sitting in traffic. Surely Dartford needs to be sorted out first.

    Stricking to bare facts.
    (1) Latest news : "Tony Sefton leaves Paramount Kent"
    (The news is in all Kent / London press, f.i.
    http://myinforms.com/en-gb/a/11886334-tony-sefton-who-had-vision-for-paramount-resort-in-kent-leaves-the-project/
    http://www.kentonline.co.uk/kent-business/county-news/man-with-paramount-vision-leaves-33905/
    … or, clean opportunity to leave in style before the ship is sinking ?

    (2) Capital investment. Actual state.
    London Resort Company Holdings (LRCH) is owned by Kuwaiti Investment since 1-1/2 year now. FACT.
    However, read this very well and literally: LHCH, not Paramount Kent, is owned by... Kuwaiti.
    If you OWN a company, you invested it's actual registered value. (No fairy tales)

    Here is the REGISTERED business data overview, about LRCH, mid 2014.



    Now compare with , quoted :
    ".... LRCH is driven by Kuwaiti European Holdings, bankrolled by the Al-Humaidi family. It is not funding the entire project, but it is providing the initial capital and actively spearheaded the key funding ..."

    "London Paramount Resort signs deal with British Film Institute (BFI)"

    (render of the Resort's interior)

    This will allow the park to use such iconic branding as Stark Trek, The Godfather, Mission: Impossible and the Italian Job.
