    Jesus Samper has been trying to get funding for this park for four years, without success. Finally, some light at the end of the tunnel as the Spanish government try to get him a €17mio infrastructure grant from the EU. Meanwhile, Real Murcia, the football club Samper owns, are relegated from the Segunda Liga due to unpaid tax debts of €12mio to the Spanish government. You couldn't make it up. Face facts, this is never going to be built.

  2. I found the info on the Murciatoday web site

  3. Where did you find this info? I'm optimistic this park in Murcia will happen... to be honest, I can't understand why the didn't put Euro Disney there.

    The plans for Murcia look great and it seems odd they are concerned there is not enough visitors currently to substantiate financial support... build it and they will come! Disney in Florida is one perfect example of that.

    The airport and infrastructure are ready to go... just build the park, please!! Europe needs a decent theme park in the sun.

  4. Have just read that Paramount Park has got final approval to commence infrastructure works from the local council, so still it moves ahead.

  5. A quote below of what Paramount Murcia has, it's not just a theme park!

    Paramount announced that the project would be divided into differently themed zones each with movie inspired themes, such as Star Trek, Titanic and Mission Impossible. There would also be a ‘Lifestyle Centre’ with 2 five-star hotels, 3 four-star status and a number of three-star hotels. The resort was also planned to benefit from themed shopping malls, restaurants, bars and clubs, a 3'000 seat conference centre – and an open-air auditorium to accommodate 15,000 people.

  6. You seem to be missing a few points regarding the London/Kent project.

    What is being proposed for the Kent project is something far bigger than just a theme park. LRCH are proposing to build a Entertainment Resort!

    Once completed the resort would included; Cinemas, Theatres, Restaurants, Hotels, Exhibition Centres, Entertainment Streets, the biggest Waterpark in Europe, Monorails and of course a Theme park!

    All of which would be twice the size of the London Olympic park! Just look at the difference in price for each project;

    Paramount Park Spain - $500M
    Paramount Park London - $3.2B!

    Although the weather in the UK is not great, certainly the Southeast of England does enjoy some of the best weather and generally the highest temperatures of the year can be found in Kent.

  7. If you look at the number of hits on this site, Paramount Park Murcia has had 200,000 vs Paramount London 70,000. This says it all, people want to go to the park in their shorts and t-shirt eating an ice cream, not waterproof jackets, woolly jumpers and a flask of coffee to keep warm. So sunny Murcia is the place for Paramount, not wet Kent.

  8. If by chance we continue and could guarantee to have the same summers as we have had in the UK for the last two years, I would love to go to a Kent based park, however with what happens to the UK in the other nine months of the year, I personally would only book to go to Murcia.

    The UK has many visitors to London for the history alone, they don't come for the weather or to be outside enjoying themselves, fact!

    I am sorry I love the UK, but a theme park? Not for me.

  9. I agree, let's be positive. Wet Kent or sunny Murcia is a no brainer. I also think that the Corvera airport issue which will shortly be resolved, so this will also help the park as I believe that once this is open it will go someway to unlock the finance and get the project moving. If I was investing, the airport opening would be key to my decision.

    Paramount Theme Park Murcia Spain

    Well let's try to ignore all the negative remarks from all the comments made by various people! I certainly hope this goes ahead, as it's my opinion it will generate employment that is certainly needed in this area and to all the downers remarks this is an ideal location, the weather is perfect for nearly 365 days a year and there are certainly enough people on this planet to visit and take holidays here! So let's be more positive instead of putting this theme park down all the time. Thank You!
