Saturday 13th April, Rodolphe Bouin inaugurated the city of children in the company of former Miss France and Miss Europe, Elodie Gossuin , the godmother of Futuropolis. The opportunity to insist on the genesis of such a project.

Four years ago, the Futuropolis team interviewed children about the city of the future, expecting to hear about new technologies. In the end, toddlers have created wind turbines, trees, water and pedestrian towns. The idea of ​​Futuropolis was launched. In a playful, aesthetic and eco-responsible version.

Without much surprise or real novelty, with the exception of giant floating trampolines designed by Futuroscope’s Research & Development Department, the activities have the advantage of seducing toddlers to young teens. For older children, it’s a safe bet that sensational attractions, just a few meters away, are more interesting.
