The draft layout of the new Paramount Studios theme park planned for Alhama de Murcia shows an area equivalent to 109 football fields, with four hotels built around a 36.5 hectare theme park, plus an aquatic park covering almost 10 hectares.

The main park is set to cover an area the size of 37 football fields - similar in size to Disneyland in Paris.

La Verdad newspaper gives the proposed name as ‘Paramount Resort’. The paper indicates that the outline design was drawn up last month and representatives from Paramount were in Murcia this Tuesday to continue working on the design with Proyectos Emblemáticos, the company which is investing in the park and which is 20% owned by the Murcia regional government.

Pedro Alberto Cruz, the Murcia government’s councillor for culture and tourism, has announced that construction of the Paramount Studios theme park set for Alhama de Murcia will begin at the end of this year or the beginning of 2012.
