The world’s first all-weather covered theme-park is planned for Wales at a cost of 500m.
The resort, which is yet to be named, is being developed by US theme designer Jack Rouse Associates, with masterplanner KSS Architects. The identity for the holding company (pictured) and the resort are by Advertising Concepts & Design (ACD) in Bristol.
The 325ha site at Magor will include museums and a castle, a hotel complex, film studios and a themed central park with state-of-the-art rides. “The resort will be designed around a variety of time zones interlinking the future with the past through the historical eras,” according to a spokesman for the consortium Legend Court Leisure Resort. It will be Europe’s biggest leisure and recreational indoor facility, and is intended to be exciting as well as educational.
ACD is handling promotional literature and marketing material for the development. Design director Tony Richmond worked on the logos with Mac specialist Mark Underwood.
The operator expects full planning permission by 1999, and the resort is due to open in 2001.
