"We are creating a first-class theme park. A destination that maximises all the new, immersive and interactive technologies and experiences in the world", said P.Y. Gerbeau, chief executive of London Resort Company Holdings. "But we won't just be creating a world-class leisure destination, it will also be one of the most sustainable theme parks on the planet".
According to preliminary estimates, the facility will be able to attract around 50,000 guests daily. It will take only a 17-minute train ride from London's St Pancras station and the park will also be connected with Paris and Brussels.
The company previously announced a partnership with the BBC, ITV Studios, and, most recently, Paramount Pictures, whose properties will have rides and attractions at the facility.
