A theme park dubbed the ‘UK Disneyland’ is being planned to open in Britain in the next five years.

It is hoped the £3.2 billion theme park, developed on a disused cement works site in Kent,  will open its doors to the first customers in 2022.

If all goes ahead, the park is to be the first of its kind in the UK and set to  feature Europe’s largest indoor water park, roller coasters, theatres, live music venues, cinemas, restaurants and hotels.

Full price tickets to the 872-acre park are expected to be an estimated £57.

There will also be space for 14,000 cars and ticket packages that will combine travel and entry costs to promote the use of public transport.

London Resort Company Holdings (LRCH), the group behind the multi-billion pound development, recently brought in a group of senior staff to push forward with the project.

The deal was initially agreed in partnership with Hollywood studio Paramount Pictures to develop the site.

But the film giant parted ways with the developers, despite plans for rides themed around some of the Hollywood favourites including Transformers and Mission Impossible.

Developers are confident plans will be approved when a development consent order (DCO) is submitted to the government in November.

If the government approves the plans, building work will start as soon as 2019 with an estimated finish of 2022 – two years later than their original estimate.
