Futuroscope (France) to open first coaster, Objectif Mars

Another new expansion announced!

Recommended Posts

Hi guys -

 

Apparently Futuroscope in France is building a new coaster that will open this March. It looks to be a combination of a dark ride followed by a launched coaster section. The unique thing, though? This thing has programmable rotating cars, beating Guardians at Epcot to the punch. What shocks me is practically nobody is mentioning the rotating cars while everyone is mentioning the "indoor fire" which is fog with lighting effects. Big whoop.

 

 

You can see the rotation around the 53 second mark. Photos on RCDB confirm that the real-life cars will rotate, as well -

I feel like I came across a full pov for this sometime last year, really interesting project. Should be fun to see this thing in action just to get a better idea of what the Guardians ride system is capable of, obviously on a much MUCH larger scale.

 

Guardians ride is going to be so cool, I might be more excited about that than I was for the new Star Wars stuff.
