LabTech, owners of Camden Market, have announced the signing of a UK debut site for Babylon Park, a new family entertainment leisure concept, at Camden Market Hawley Wharf.
The 35,000 sq ft, three-floor leisure venue will be Babylon Park’s flagship location, providing a multitude of activities, including a roller coaster, drop tower, and bumper cars, alongside video and simulator arcade machines, soft play areas, and karaoke rooms.
It will open later this spring, with an intergalactic theme that will encourage learning about living more sustainably, and a family-friendly F&B offer including soft and hot drinks, ice creams, and waffles.
Commenting on the signing, Teddy Sagi, owner of Camden Market Hawley Wharf, said: “It is hugely exciting for Camden Market Hawley Wharf to be the first home in the UK for Babylon Park. The new entertainment centre reflects our emphasis on introducing fun and unique concepts to the destination, and being family-friendly it sits perfectly alongside our existing and forthcoming leisure operators, contributing greatly to the town’s domestic and international appeal.”
Efi Malka, owner of Babylon Park, said: “Opening our first venue in the UK, within a space that champions family-friendly concepts in an inviting atmosphere is a great move for Babylon Park. We are looking forward to bringing our brand-new concept here, which will define and set the tone for our expansion across the rest of Europe and provide an opportunity for visitors to explore and learn, and have tremendous fun while doing it.”
Babylon Park is a global amusement park operator with 19 sites in three different countries and has plans for further worldwide expansion in the coming years.
The Camden site will be their largest to date, and has been designed and created by P&P Projects, who are behind many high profile attractions around the world including Madame Tussauds and Nickelodeon Adventure.
