As part of the development of its investment plan in 5 years, from 2017 to 2021, Futuroscope is looking for new entertainment ideas for the pavilions of Solido and Star of the Future. With a very strong history first marked by technology and Imax theaters (2D or 3D dome or as a flat), then by immersive simulators of all types, the theme park needs to reinvent itself and innovate with outstanding animation concepts while remaining consistent with its communication theme “Festive and Fun Family”.
The concepts can be inspired by the following note on the theme “Dreams of the Future” that is part of the new positioning of the park:
“The Futuroscope, French park intelligent fun, creates spectacular animations to enrich and entertain all generations of visitors by immersing them in unknown worlds, dreamed or futuristic, where they are teleported into other lives and enjoy a joyful and positive experience.
TECHNICAL & OPERATIONAL CONTRAINTS
The audience targets of these two subjects for study are families with children. The animations concepts must be accessible from 1,05m and should not be differentiating.
The expected minimum capacity is 800 persons per hour (ideally 1000).
Regarding the buildings:
The Solido can be preserved or razed. An additional construction in the back of the flag may be considered if additional surfaces need.
Star of the Future can be used as a whole, on its 3 levels, disregarding the current exhibition mobilizing the intermediate level.
If one of the proposals can be elected a “major” concept by its attractiveness and the expected level of satisfaction (9/10), the maximum amount authorised can go up to € 15 million (of which € 3 million for building works). If this is not the case, the range is rather 5 to € 7 million.
