    Mine was from PY Gerbeau and it said he thanks us for attending the consultation, like they said nothing we haven't already heard.

  2. It was talking about how the plans were accepted, nothing we haven’t already heard! It did give a link to the document though!

  3. I got an email from The London Resort because I was on the consultation - anyone else receive an email?

  4. What has Faithden bid for and what details have we got about the actual hotel?

    Faithdean Plc has won the bid to build The Paramount Hotel at The London Resort.

    I believe this is for two reasons:
    They are still in deals with BBC, ITV, Paramount, and as some people think, Universal.
    Or the plan was to never build a park and to just build up some hype so the public accepts it, then ditch the park and become a leisure facility!

    Hopefully we can get some vague details about the actual rides soon.
    My concern all along has been that there is no intention to build the theme park and instead we get the central plaza with some additional leisure.

    I strongly hope this isn't the case and they are trying to be vague with the theme park stuff to keep secrets.

Meanwhile as the design for the central area of the resort (waterpark, hotels, etc.) evolves that part of the concept art gets more detailed and accurate in the newer version...
    They are certainly being tight lipped about what attractions will be in the park. The castle as the centrepiece of the park is about the only thing that is more or less confirmed by PY Gerbeau, still got a feeling Universal are involved somehow.

    The water coasters also share the same layout, and possibly Adventure City in Kunming is flipped to make part of The Studio in London. There will probably be more clones and similarities between the two.

    First version:



    Second version:



    Let’s compare some of the structures shown in the layout of Paramount Park Kunming (released by the Kunming government as part of the official Environmental Impact Report) with some of the structures shown in the layout of The London Resort (released officially by The London Resort in December 2019):

    Full layout of Paramount Park Kunming



    Full layout of The London Resort (another version can be seen here: https://infrastructure.planninginspectorate.gov.uk/wp-content/ipc/uploads/projects/BC080001/BC080001-000360-2.21%20Illustrative%20Masterplan.pdf)



    Part of ‘Lost Kingdom’ area at Paramount Park Kunming:



    The full ‘The Jungle’ area at The London Resort:



    Do you notice that they are almost identical? In both layouts, the top left building is probably a restaurant, then below that the other building is “Tomb Raider: The Game Begins”, which is a major indoor stunt show. Below the stunt show building in The London Resort’s version is a Splash Over from Mondial. Across from the two buildings on the right in both layouts is “Tomb Raider: Escape from Emerald Mountain”, which is a roller coaster.

    Ride building for Mission: Impossible dark ride in the ‘Adventure City’ area of Paramount Park Kunming:



    Unspecified building in the ‘The Studio’ area of The London Resort:



    For one last example, here’s the “Flight of the Skybax” flying theater ride building in the ‘Dinotopia’ area at Paramount Park Kunming:



    And here’s another unspecified building in “The Isles” area of The London Resort:



    Even the rockwork on the roof of the flying theater is the same in both layouts.
