London Resort

The London Resort theme park being dubbed the UK’s Disneyland has delayed the opening date of the huge attraction.

The £2.5billion project was first announced in 2012, with hopes to have opened by 2019.

However, it has been plagued by delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic, disagreements with locals and wildlife protection laws.

In November, part of the area was designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) due to a number of rare species in the area.

London Resort boss Py Gerbeau confirmed that works will start next year – however, it has since been revealed that the opening date has been pushed from 2024 to 2025.

Despite this, he said previously to all the naysayers and doom-mongers, the London Resort is going ahead, as planned.

Alongside the announcement on the resort’s Twitter account, bosses offered a host of other updates, as well as an artist’s impression of a new part of the venue.

It shows a fire-breathing dragon on top of a giant castle surrounded by turrets in scenes reminiscent of Game of Thrones.

The lava appears to be cascading down the sides of the bricks while arrows jut out of the greenery and crowds gather at the base. The image was accompanied by a new “work in progress” list for 2021 and the year ahead.
