New – The time machine, an incredible journey back in time with the raving rabbits

Futuroscope has cranked up this attraction with a unique blend of art and technology to bring visitors an all-out intensive immersive experience.

New – Hubble Mission

This 3D adventure propels young audiences out to the Hubble Space Telescope to join the crew of the space shuttle Atlantis on a high-stakes repair mission. Their aim is to keep Hubble observing.

New – Virus Attack

Visitors are shrunk to a microscopic size and sent hurtling on a simulator ride into the human body, where they have to pass through muscle tissue, meander down the digestive system, and fight off white blood cells in order to wipe out a dreaded virus – all with only a few minutes to do it in.

New – AEROBAR

Designed by Aerophile in association with DVVD architects (who built the support frame) 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!
