The 'Definitely 100% Totally Going to Happen' London Resort

Recommended Posts

Planning application gone in. 




I think the disaster of a year could help this project get the green light seeing as they belive it to bring in so much money. 


Some great new concept art too. 


Fingers crossed. We should know by the end of January.

It's all about the setting...       Beautiful beautiful Tilbury.

On my local radio yesterday when coming into work from Gravesend (A few mins from the park) It was reported that the plans for it to go ahead have officially been approved and building work is going t

Bringing PY on board last summer does seem to have been a wonder move for this project. This is certainly the most optimistic I've ever felt about this project ever happening. And I think a large part of the reason it's at the stage it is now is because of PY's influence and lead.


I still won't believe this will happen until I see construction start. And even then I'll still have an air of doubt.


If it ever gets to a stage of opening, I don't see it being the quality or draw that they expect, at least for the first few years. But who knows...

I seriously hope this happens and though I’m still in the “I’ll believe it when I see it” club right now, things are looking somewhat more optimistic and hopefully we will see things taking shape soon.


Theres still many hurdles ahead for this project and one has to hope it doesn’t end up like one of those that gets abandoned during construction or how Hard Rock park ended up.

Just when I think this project is dead, it crawls out of the woodwork, once again! It's hard to fathom that this could actually be happening now. When was this meant to be opening again? Wasn't it 2016? 😂

Its better than nothing...

I've changed the topic title.


Certainly a much more accurate name ^_^


I feel like ever since I did this this project has actually made real progress. 


I still won't believe it till it's open, but if it does open, I will definitely 100% totally claim I was being serious and not in the least bit sarcastic.

6.5 million people in a year seems... Optimistic? Unless they're playing the game of visitors to the resort generally rather than just to the park section of it.


I haven't gone through the documents in detail, but I would very much imagine that the projected numbers are always for the resort generally. Or at the very least, 'park + something'.


Then again, I seem recall earlier documents saying the whole resort thing would get 30million+ people a year. So 6.5m seems conservative now. Who knows.

Some awesome information released from the London Resort on plans for the first area of the definitely going to happen London Resort. Looks stunning in the concept art and sounds excellent in the press release.


Two coasters including a 70mph 1km plus multi launch coaster is planned for the area as well as a high tech 4D ride, dinosaur dig experience, large arena and themed dining experiences. 


Looks fantastic. 


Peoples thoughts?

I'm still in the corner of saying this is happening. I'm no expert but either its happening or its a money laundering scam. Will be interesting to see all the critics in the queue to get on the first public train of veliocercoaster when it opens.

Sounds nice.


Will believe it when I see it.


A quote from this article reminds us it's still not all sunshines and rainbows ahead:



This comes after Gerbeau confirmed that the resort “will of course continue” despite the site becoming an SSSI. Prior to that, the project passed the first test of the Planning Inspectorate.

“Working with the Planning Inspectorate, we have requested further time to prepare for the formal enquiry later this summer,” said Gerbeau.
