3,252 sq m Leisure Concept Babylon Park signs for UK Debut

LabTech, owners of Camden Market (London), have announced the signing of a UK debut site for Babylon Park, a new family entertainment leisure concept, at Camden Market Hawley Wharf (shopping & dining destination).

The 3,252 sq m, three-floor leisure venue will be Babylon Park’s flagship location, providing a multitude of activities. These include a roller coaster, drop tower, and bumper cars, alongside video and simulator arcade machines, soft play areas, and karaoke rooms. It is set to open later this spring, with an intergalactic theme that also encourages learning about living more sustainably, and a family-friendly F&B offer.

The company 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 also behind Madame Tussauds and Nickelodeon Adventure.

Commenting on the signing, Teddy Sagi, Owner of Camden Market Hawley Wharf, said: “The new entertainment center 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: “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.”

Babylon Park will add an experiential element to Camden Market Hawley Wharf, which has a wealth of food and beverage operators, independent retailers, and leisure facilities. These include the recently opened Curzon cinema and Camden Boxing Club, with further leisure concepts based on Tomb Raider and Peaky Blinders set to join the adjacent Camden Market later this year.

Colliers and CBRE represent Camden Market Hawley Wharf.
