    I wouldn't hold your breath. This project has been going around in circles for almost a decade now, and very very few theme parks in the UK have taken off without using existing infrastructure.

    If it does truly go ahead, then it will give the UK industry the kick up the backside it needs, but UK planning restrictions are a bitch.

    Great news. But does London need another theme park? Already has Chessington, Thorpe Park and Lego land. Wish these companies would realise that there are other areas in the UK besides London.

    Seems fair. Also wouldn’t that make more tourism for the entire country? Like instead of crowding one city you could put it elsewhere.

    Again, it's all down to planning permission. A lot of the UK is still undeveloped countryside, and what does get greenlit for development is usually functional, e.g. housing or amenities. Plus London is such a major hub for transport (two of the UK's biggest airports, plus the hub of all rail transport) that it makes the most sense to place it nearby. Alton Towers is arguably the best park in the UK and is very popular, but is a bitch to get to via public transport, preventing a huge number of potential visitors from accessing it.

    I loved it! Went on it several times when we were at universal. It was usually over an hour wait but it was a blast.

    Exactly. Bonecrusher vs Sideswipe was a good scene.

    I hope London follows the same style. They can use Jolt or Dino this time.

    Infrastructure is the main problem with this planed park, it's outside of London with only the M25 and a single basic train line providing access to it. The traffic around here is bad enough already with the Dartford bridge also being in the vicinity.
