The London Resort have unveiled details of the park's first themed land during a presentation by PY Gerbeau at the greenloop sustainability in visitor attractions conference.
Based around the theme of a prehistoric nature reserve and what happens when dinosaurs and people interact without disaster, the land will contain two rollercoasters, a 4D dark-ride, interactive show, themed dining and a dig site for junior archaeologists.
Base Camp's headline attraction is a launched coaster themed around the flight of a Quetzalcoatlus, a Late Cretaceous pterosaur believed to be one of the the largest flying animals to have existed. The ride will aim to be one of the fastest in Europe, travelling with a top speed of 70 mph through over 1km of track that remains close to the ground, darting over treetops, water and rocky canyons. The second coaster is designed to be a more family-friendly attraction, taking in more of the scenery at a more steady pace.
A themed fine dining offering will also be available, which takes place alongside a prehistoric aquarium. On display will be numerous schools of ancient fish and smaller predators, along with the occasional appearance of the much larger and more deadly Ichthyosaurs.
The park is currently at the start of the planning inspection phase, which is expected to complete by the end of the year. If successful, the development could lead to something that rivals the Disney and Universal elite parks for the quality of attraction and experience.
