More fun for London: The London Resort, a first-class theme park with rides, attractions, and accommodations is scheduled for the opening of its first phase in 2024. The project is initiated and backed by the Kuwaiti European Holding (KEH) Group which holds other assets in London. Media partners of the 3.6 billion dollars London Resort Company Holdings (LRCH) are the BBC, ITV Studios, and Hollywood studios Paramount Pictures. Europe hasn’t seen a theme park project of this magnitude since Disneyland Paris opened its gates in 1992. Kuwaiti European Holding Group is a holding company, founded in 2008 by Dr. Abdullah Al-Humaidi. KEH Group’s primary focus is on financial services, leisure, and real estate in Europe and the Middle East. It has offices in London, Dublin, Cairo, Hong Kong, and Kuwait.
Among other assets are Armila Capital Limited in the United Kingdom, Ebbsfleet United Football Club in the United Kingdom, and Landmarque Property Group in Ireland. Kuwaiti European Holding Group’s business goal is to scout financial opportunities and investments with a strong return to shareholders that benefit the communities where they are located. Its most ambitious project is the London Resort. The first-class theme park on 535 acres of Kent’s Swanscombe peninsula is situated a 17-minute train ride away from Central London. It is to be built in phases. Its first phase will open to the public in 2024 with the next phase five years later. It promises the latest immersive technologies and sustainability. In the plans are six themed lands, from an ancient jungle to a science fiction realm. The entrance area will have a High Street with a grand plaza and will be flanked by restaurants, shops, and hotels with 3,500 rooms, a waterpark, and a convention center. The park will generate around 30,000 jobs.
