Futuroscope has been closed since the 15th March due to the Covid-19 crisis, but for over two months has been working with government departments on the hygiene measures and logistical arrangements required to re-open to the public. The entire visitor and employee hygiene protocol has been approved by the Prefecture, in accordance with government announcements.
The Park will be open on the weekends of the 13-14 and 20-21 June, and then daily from the 27 June. "We have decided to re-open gradually, with a limited number of visitors to begin with," confirms Rodolphe Bouin, Chairman of the Futuroscope Board of Directors. "This will be our second opening of the season, and it features the launch of our major new attraction “Destination Mars”. It’s a pleasure to be welcoming visitors again."
Safety and a smooth visitor experience!
Initially, admission to the Park will be by advance booking only via the www.futuroscope.com website.
The principle behind the series of measures is to prevent the spread of the infection and to practise social distancing and good hygiene. These are applied at each attraction and boutique, and more generally across the entire site, with ground markings, more frequent cleaning and disinfection, 200 alcohol-based hand sanitizer dispensers.
The Park’s customer-facing teams are experienced in managing visitor flows and are fully trained in the hygiene protocol. They will be posted throughout the Park in order to direct, arrange and control visitor movements. Futuroscope is also installing the Lineberty virtual queuing app in six top attractions so that visitors can reserve their seats once they are in the Park, thereby preventing congestion.
Masks will be recommended in all areas of the Park and will be mandatory in certain areas. Signs will clearly inform visitors when masks must be worn.
Priority will be given to advance purchases and bookings in restaurants that are operating at a reduced seating capacity in order to ensure a smooth service. New solutions have been created to enable visitors to book picnics that they can enjoy on the many areas and lawns available across the 60-hectare Futuroscope site.
Turn your visit into a stay!
"The break options are still available, so visitors can spend two days at the Park, watch “The Star Forge” fairytale outdoor aquatic evening show, and stay at the Hôtel du Futuroscope or one of our partner hotels, which are also re-opening," points out Rodolphe Bouin. "Everything has been planned so that our visitors can enjoy a fantastic time with family or friends, in complete peace of mind. Our teams are ready and eager to welcome them to Futuroscope!"
