FUTUROSCOPE

It is with special pride that ViaDirect announces, with all its partners, the equipment of Futuroscope theme park in Poitiers, France, with their hardware and software wayfinding solution.

Suited to the Futuroscope needs, ViaDirect software now assists and guides all the park visitors.

Flagship of France’s leisure parks, specialized in new technology attractions since its opening in 1987, Futuroscope welcomed 1,85 millions visitors in 2018. July/August 2019 560,000 visitors even broke the year 2000’s last record.

Already known for its numerous high-tech attractions, Futuroscope is launching « Objectif Mars » in 2020. Even if finding its ruta in the park has always been quite easy, it was only a question of time before the specialist of high-tech and experimental attractions would one day decide to use a high-tech wayfinding system.

ViaDirect is then especially happy to offer, with its partners, a complete solution of totems, kiosks and software able to guide its visitors to one attraction to the other in a precise and playful way. 

Thus, while offering the opportunity to quickly find your way, the dynamic displays give visitors access, from anywhere in the park, to a real time and instantaneous overview of all available attractions, including detailed schedules.
