  1. Well I'm going to wish them luck as this seems like a very good investment and looks like it could have big potential.

    The new logo has been presented at meetings to potential investors and planning committees.



    Bosses have also said new supporters for rides at the theme park will be revealed before the end of the year.
    Developers claimed it was part of a new strategy for a broader mix of intellectual property for its rides and attractions, rather than having one studio name above the door. The plans have since suffered a further setback after its opening date was put back for a fourth time.
    People are just not convinced by this project and unless they get a big name backer soon this project will be dead.

  3. You may well think that but there has been a variable boom in tourists coming to the UK, also if there was (and this is only a thought) it might have a positive impact on tourism to the UK is there was a Disneyland in the UK or a Universal Studios London. Let's not forget London's a world-city and there a quite a few areas both in and around the capital that could accommodate such an investment.

    Disneyland in UK would never, ever ever happen. Disneyland Paris already relies heavily on British tourism to sustain their activity, TWDC would not put two of their own theme parks in competition

  6. I think this new name and the way things were worded on their website suggests we can rule out the possibility of it being a universal park. Donít get me wrong Iím still hoping to be proved wrong.

  7. The former London Paramount theme park project has finally been renamed. It's called "The London Resort".

  8. The British are probably the biggest theme park fans in Europe. It's in our history from the Victorian seaside parks of yesteryear. Or to put it another way, I was at Alton towers on a cold windy summers day and the queue for the River Rapids ride was 2 hrs long. When I was in Spain we went to Terra Mitca on a nice warm summers day and it was a 10 minute queue for their Rapids ride which is just as good as the Alton Towers version. So the weather does not really come into it as far as the British are concerned. If it was made to the same quality and themes as universal Florida it would be packed out no problem and that would just be with the British fans.

  9. They can do what they did with Japan and have a lot indoors. UK does see a fair portion of sunshine.

    Disneyland Paris, the closest thing to a Universal Studios London-type of park, has 20% of its visitors coming from the UK. There is definitely a large demand coming from there, if they're able to attract a decent portion of the UK market plus some tourists and the parkfans to their location, it's not impossible for them to succeed.

    If we're talking strictly about weather, sunny UAE is struggling at the moment with its theme parks. Location is key
