FUTUROSCOPE

Compagnie des Alpes (Majority Shareholder)
France

 

 

Park News - (1/30/2016) BlooLoop has a fascinating article posted all about one of the world's most different theme parks, Futuroscope. The crazy landscape and large pavilion buildings make it look more like a futuristic Sci-Fi inspired world's fair than a traditional theme park, but attracting an audience of over 2-million guests each year, it is clear the French creation has clearly found a unique place in the world of themed entertainment.
    They go on to talk a bit more about the park's 2016 plans which includes the launching of four new large format films and a new year-round evening show created by Cirque du Soleil.

 

2018 - Through Thomas Pesquet's Eyes / Sebastien Loeb Racing Xperience - (3/8/18) According to a report posted to BlooLoop, Futuroscope will open two new attractions in 2018, "Through Thomas Pesquet's Eyes", a new 4K Imax Laser presentation into space with the European Space Agency's youngest astronaut, along with the "Sebastien Loeb Racing Xperience", a VR based attraction.

 

icon_STOP2019 - Zero Gravity - (2/21/19) Futuroscope will open a virtual-skydiving wind tunnel attraction in 2019 called Zero Gravity along with a new children’s play area called Futuroplis themed as a mini city.

 

icon_STOP2020 - Space Themed Roller Coaster - Planning - BlooLoop Reports that Futuroscope is planning to add a new space themed roller coaster to the park in time to open for the 2020 season. No word on which company might be behind the ride hardware, or if this is intended as a family coaster experience or something more thrilling. The attraction is thought to have a budget of around €20 million.

 

icon_STOP2021 - Arena - Planing - (2/21/19) BlooLoop reports that Futuroscope will open a 6,000 seat arena able to accommodate both sporting and cultural events.

 

icon_STOPFuture Expansion Plans - (2/21/19) Futuroscope is looking into the idea of opening a second smaller park with a separate admission fee sometime over the next ten years. No word on how it may be themed or designed in order to be worthy of being a second park instead of an expansion to the original. According to an interview with the park, they believe that already half of their guests visit the park for two days, so adding a second park would be a move in the right direction to offer their guests even more to do.
