Thrills attractions

Arthur, the 4D adventure
La Forge aux EtoilesCredit : © Parc du Futuroscope, Réf : CDI_2010-004 / DLV : 2015

This attraction has been developed by the famous film director Luc Besson (Director of LUCY, the 5th Element, the Big Blue….) to create an attraction that is so fully immersive, from its scenery to its storytelling and unique, cutting-edge technological system.

After a fun, interactive and instructive walk through the world of the Minimoys, visitors join Arthur on a hair-raising race against time back to the human world. This attraction boasts a world-beating array of technologies under one roof. The 3D animated film viewed on a 9,700-ft² IMAX® dome screen, the synchronized motion simulator and the multi-sensory physical effects in the theatre all combine to absorb visitors in this original digital work from Luc Besson.

Accessible from 3’5’’

Dances with Robots

A high-energy robot-party to a banging playlist from DJ Martin Solveig. One giant dance floor, ten robots standing 23 feet high, three thrill levels to choose from… This star attraction gets a new club beat this year as ten 23-ft-high robot arms pick up their passengers and perform a series of brand new dance routines to remixes from the famous DJ, in time with breath-taking lighting and special effects. Get back into the groove! A great experience for all the family (Children must be 4ft or over)

“The Robothespian” who welcomes you inside the attraction has been created by the British Company “Engineered Arts”. He is also used by the NASA to interact with visitors at the Kennedy Space Center.

Aerobar*

The Aerobar lifts twelve lucky guests 115 foot in the air with drink (and snack) in hand to have twelve minutes of spectacular views over the Park. This is an entirely unusual experience in the foodtainment mould and can be enjoyed with family and friends. Feet dangling from the airship – you will not have drunk a glass of champagne from this position ever!
*Extra for the drink to be paid at the entrance to the Aerobar

The Time Machine with the Raving Rabbids

You’d be raving mad to miss it!
