IAAPA 2014: Firm behind UK Paramount resort aiming to drive project forward

by Jak Phillips | 18 Nov 2014

London Resort Company Holdings Ltd (LRCH), the company behind the proposed £2bn (US$3.2bn, €2.5bn) entertainment resort in the south east of England, is hoping to drive the project forward with its debut at the 2014 IAAPA Expo in Orlando, Florida.

The resort - scheduled to open in 2020 and currently moving through the planning process having been classified as a project of national significance by the British government - will feature a theme park, waterpark, sports facilities, an entertainment street, staff training academy and 5,000 hotel rooms.

The resort’s ‘Entertainment City’

Speaking exclusively to Attractions Management, LRCH director Fenlon Dunphy said the company delegation - also comprising director David Testa and IP expert Teri Ruffley - would use its week at IAAPA to have a small number of meetings with potential suppliers, exchange ideas and continue to build momentum behind the fast moving project.

Dunphy added that the week would provide the ideal opportunity to showcase the project to the rest of the attractions industry and provide an overview of its progression.

“We are delighted to be attending this year’s IAAPA Attractions Expo. 2014 has been hugely positive in terms of realising our vision for the London Paramount Entertainment Resort,” he said.

“We have received nationally significant status from the British government and are pressing ahead with our planning application for the project, which will be submitted autumn of next year. We have also progressed discussions with prospective commercial partners, in addition to Paramount Pictures with whom we hold an exclusive licence.”
