    Another new press release went out this week it looks like but with very little information on it that we haven't heard before.

    Humphrey Percy, group CEO of the project's parent company Kuwaiti European Holdings, said he is confident that plans will be approved and affordable.

    "We have the financial backing to take us all the way through that process," he added.

    The company is due to make an application for planning permission this year. If the Government approves the plans, the park could open in 2023.
    London Resort Company Holdings (LRCH), the group behind the theme park, has brought in a group of senior staff to push forward with the project.

    A new partner, Intercontinental Hotel Group, has been brought on board to operate the more than 3,500 hotel rooms on the site.

  2. According to insiders, consultations are due to start by fall 2018. They are still in talks with NBC. Europe would be a big market for Universal to expand and as a competitor to Disneyland Paris.

  3. Well they did say that they've got one more round of public consultations to go through before anything starts.

  4. So its now 2 months past the year end when they said a further announcement would be made and nothing forthcoming. So looks like its heading to the - good idea but no money pile like many other projects.

    Now Corvera airport in Spain is opening may be that project will come back to life on a smaller scale

  5. 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.

  7. 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

  10. 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.
