Park News - (4/7/2023) Futuroscope is in the news today after it was reported that a fire broke on the Objectif Mars roller coaster this morning. According to the post on Reddit, a lithium battery under one of the roller coaster cars caught on fire, with riders trapped inside the car just above. The post comes with a shocking video clip showing riders trapped in the car by the locked restraints, with one passenger beating at the smoke with what looks like a jacket, before the staff quickly arrive with fire extinguishers to put out the flames.

2025 - Future Expansion Plans - (7/7/20) According to a post by BlooLoop, Futuroscope is now planning to build a second park and resort area, known as “Futuroscope 2”, which they hope to open by 2025. The article states that the plan is for an €304 million investment that will create a water park, two hotels and ‘three attractions” by 2025. The goal of this is to expand the Futuroscope site to become a multi-day destination, with the existing park to also receive an investment of €200 million over the next decade. The article actually goes on to name the waterpark as “Aquascope”.
(2/21/19) Futuroscope is looking into the idea of opening a second smaller park with a separate admission fee sometime over the next ten years. No word on how it may be themed or designed in order to be worthy of being a second park instead of an expansion to the original. According to an interview with the park, they believe that already half of their guests visit the park for two days, so adding a second park would be a move in the right direction to offer their guests even more to do.
