By 2020 you could be enjoying a Doctor Who rollercoaster or Top Gear bumper cars at the world’s first BBC theme park.
The developer of a new theme park being planned in Kent has struck a deal with the Beeb to have games and rides based on the nation’s favourite TV shows.
The £2bn London Paramount Resort will also include attractions based on Paramount films such as Mission: Impossible, Star Trek and The Godfather.
The resort is being billed as a rival to Disneyland and will be built on the Swanscombe Peninsula between Gravesend and Dartford, providing planning permission comes through.
It will open in Easter 2020 and create 27,000 jobs.
Stephen Davies, director of live events, BBC Worldwide – the commercial arm of the BBC which made the deal – said: “We’re always looking for opportunities to extend fans’ enjoyment of their favourite shows and the idea behind this resort is a really exciting way of celebrating the very special place the BBC has in British culture.”
