19 Reasons Why London Would Make One Hell Of A Theme Park

With Paramount London planning to open as a theme park in 2021 (ahhhhh!!), we got thinking about what London would be like if it was one crazy, huge, incredible yet totally dysfunctional playground…

1. This year, London will be home to the world’s longest & tallest slide at the ArcelorMittal Orbit.

2. Like Disneyland, our realm sprawls far and wide…

3. And we have places that will give Fantasyland a run for its money…

13. But, like most rides, they come with plenty of technical issues…

15. There’s no point trying to ‘swipe’ your way ahead with Londonland’s ‘fast-pass’, because EVERYONE has them…

16. The theme park has its own array of characters, mascots and villains.

17. Londonland’s endless food vendors are ready to provide ‘wholesome’ pre-ride food – alongside jolly jingles…

19. After a long day in, Londonland, as with many theme parks, we’re left feeling exhausted, flustered and a little bit sick…

 

20. But, despite it all, Londonland is still an exciting and magical place to be.
