ITV Studios has signed a deal with London Resort theme park, whose attractions will be based on ITV content and characters.
Due to open in 2024 on the Swanscombe Peninsula in Kent, the resort will include two parks over 535 acres, featuring rides, experiences and 3,500 hotel rooms. The theme park is forecast to create more than 30,000 jobs.
ITV EVP kids content and distribution Steve Green said: “ITV Studios creates more than TV, building global franchises loved by generations of families, and we look forward to seeing one of our biggest global brands brought to life on such a grand scale right here in the UK.”
London Resort Company Holdings chairman Steve Norris added: “To create a world-class destination, you have to work with world-class partners and ITV Studios ticks every box.”
