New theme park in uk
« on: December 11, 2014, 09:31:33 AM »
Popular BBC shows such as Doctor Who, Sherlock and Top Gear could be turned into theme-park attractions as part of a development deal involving the Hollywood studio behind Mission Impossible and Star Trek,

BBC Worldwide, the commercial arm of the BBC, has struck a deal with a Kuwait-backed property developer to allow a range of its programmes and characters to be “brought to life” at a new £2bn theme park and holiday resort to be built by the Thames estuary in north Kent, in partnership with Paramount Pictures.London Resort Company Holdings has signed a development agreement with BBC Worldwide to feature the corporation’s intellectual property at the London Paramount Entertainment Resort, which promises to “combine the glamour of Hollywood with the best of British culture”.
 The developer said the agreement with the BBC is the first step towards a formal partnership between the corporation and the resort, which is earmarked to open on Easter 2020.
 They will now whittle down the programme brands and characters which are to be turned into rides, interactive simulators and experiences.
It is thought, given the nature of the resort – which will seek to attract foreign tourists to the UK as well as Brits who have grown up with the BBC – that international hits including Doctor Who, Sherlock and Top Gear are likely to feature.
