    The fact it's called "Paramount Park" should have been a clue to it being out-of-date.

    Why can't they just call it off? Originally it should've been open by now.

    The only reason this is still going is so that the project team can receive huge paychecks for delaying a theme park occasionally.

    Hopefully this is the last delay before they submit the planning application and begin construction!

    Hahahahahaha!!! I never saw this coming at all.

    Christ gullivers have got plans in and approved for Rotherham in the time of this debacle.

    Surely it’s time to throw the hat in.

    “We have, to date, spent approximately £55m and, as is not unusual for a project of this scale, the pace of activity has varied

    £55 :emoji_zipper_mouth:ing million English pounds.

    £55 MILLION.

    What mindless cretin with bottomless pockets is funding these narcissistic vanity project??? Or is it just one big money laundering process.

    At least a new opening date of 2026 gives them more time to work out the kinks and deliver this project well. I know it's a long way away, but it will be worth it! Also, going by Merlin's 4 year cycle, Alton Towers should be opening SW10 in 2026, so 2026 will be an exciting year for the UK industry if this opens as well as SW10!

    I admire your optimism Matt.

    If I ever decide to do something crazy like run a marathon, I want you cheering me on, especially since I'd never finish either..

    I wish this project would just go away now. The sooner people stop tagging me in :emoji_poop: on Facebook, or asking me at work about the new "Disneyland London", the better!

    Yes, the 8 year wait to be told Paramount Park will now open in 2052 will be worth it.
