News Post: Paramount London To Host A Theme Park With Transformers Attraction
Meanwhile, the Transformers ride at Universal Orlando/Hollywood/Singapore ain't shit.
What makes you say that?
Neat. Probably gonna be Bumblebee inspired is my guess.
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.
The theme is how London has been transformed...
Time to sleep until 2024 for this to be open then
Lol they’d totally say that.
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.
There is so much more to Transformers besides Bumblebee. Fuckin goodness
Did you ride it? Ive heard from so many of my friends that it's really fun.
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.
Yeah, it made great use of the CGI models!
I hope London follows the same style. They can use Jolt or Dino this time.
Dino would be great.
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.
