Cancel those tickets to Alton Towers and Disney Land because the BBC are looking to get your coin at an even more exciting park…
It seems that the Beeb is looking at a £2bn park in Kent, England. The park itself would be based on the BBC’s properties, with the main areas being Doctor who and Sherlock.
Excited yet? You should be…
“The BBC’s commercial arm, BBC Worldwide, has signed a preliminary agreement over the use of its shows at the theme park and holiday resort, which is due to open in north Kent in 2020.
“A BBC source said that the discussions were in the early stages but that hit shows including Doctor Who, Top Gear and Sherlock were all being considered as subjects for rides or other attractions at the park, which is backed by Hollywood studio Paramount.”
The park will be built on the Swanscombe Peninsula in north Kent and is due to open by Easter 2020.
Stephen Davies, BBC Worldwide’s director of Live Events, 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.”
So, the question is… where do we pre-book?
