The attractions include, ‘Magic Carpet’, ‘Adrenaline Rush’, ‘The Race for Atlantis’ and ‘Space Station’, which allow you to experience breathtakingly realistic sensations of flying, falling, underwater exploration and space travel. The spectacular laser show at dusk adds the finishing touch to a great day out.





There are three major attractions giving robots star billing at Futuroscope: Le Zoo des Robots (The Robot Zoo), a fun, interactive attraction for all the family to enjoy, La ForÍt des RÍves (The Forest of Dreams), the spectacular new evening show, and Danse avec les Robots (Dances with Robots), a staggering ride that combines state-of-the-art technology and artistic skill.





There is also a fantastic new ride - Arthur and the Minimoys. This is based on the hit film created by Luc Besson, who has also designed the ride. In not 3 but 4D, you not only see, you also feel the whole experience! Visitors travel through the attraction in a 25-seater carriage that mimics the flight of the ladybuggies, the insect-shaped vehicles in the Minimoy world.
