Park News - (6/10/13) Theme Park University takes an in depth look at the unique Futuroscope park this week along with a second article focusing on the technology the park has used for the past few new and very unique attractions, including a look at the new Lady O nighttime show described as one of “the most bizarre nighttime spectacles in theme park history.”
2014 - La Machine A Voyager Dans Le Temp
s (The Time Machine) - (12/9/13) Futuroscope has opened the park’s new Raving Rabbids themed The Time Machine attraction this month. I’m told that the ride system is essentially the one used for the former “the Animals of the Future” attraction, but with all new technology and five 3D screens. A video about the making of the new dark ride attraction, in French, has been embedded below, which features some great footage of the ride in action. And seriously… what’s not to like about a dark ride where you get to ride on a toilet seat and travel through time?
Want more? Disney & More has posted their own preview images of the attraction as well this week, along with an embedded full POV video of the attraction itself.
(9/5/13) Futroscope will open a very interesting new attraction in 2014 it seems… a new indoor ride experience themed to the Raving Rabbids video game characters, or as they are known in France, “The Lapins Cretins”. The attraction is called, “La Machine A Voyager Dans Le Temps”… or in English… The Time Machine.
This will be a 4D Dark Ride project and if the Rabbids were not enough to make this potentially hysterical, they’ve designed the best themed time machine car for you to ride in since the Delorian. Check it out… you’ll be traveling through time in style… riding on a toilet seat. Because when you’ve got to go… you’ve got to go.
2015 - 2019 - Future Expansion Plans - (12/29/13) Disney & More reports that the Supervisory Board just approved a 46 million Euro expansion plan for Futuroscope that will see renewed content brought over the next 4-5 years to five of the park’s pavilions: Image Studio, Kinemax, Solido, Imax 3D and the Magic Carpet. The replacement on the way for the Magic Carpet has already been labeled as “a new major thrill ride”.
