A planned £1 billion theme park intended to be the nation's biggest will be mainly indoors to guard against the British weather. The London Resort will boast rides inspired by hit BBC shows and is intended to dwarf rivals Thorpe Park and Alton Towers, with a site selected close to the River Thames in north Kent. Designers are taking no chances with the inclement UK weather, and will house 70% of the park's attractions indoors. Planners for the vast 535-acre London Resort anticipate that by the time the first rides open at the eco-friendly site in 2024, young people will be more attuned to electronic, indoor entertainment, including computer games and virtual reality. A spokesman for the project said: "It's a park in the UK and we want to operate all year round, and make sure we have got attractions when the weather is not good.
"It was always designed to have quite a large proportion of the attractions indoors."
