The strong points of the Park

The famous attractions of the Rabbids at Futuroscope can be perfectly accessible for people with reduced mobility. It offers these visitors in wheelchairs to unscrew one of the seats of the wagon to be able to accommodate a wheelchair. However, services require a lot of organization for the personnel. Therefore, it is preferable to go to this attraction at the end of the day and to see directly with the staff.

The attraction “Les Yeux Grands Fermés” created in particular to educate visitors, is a guided attraction in the dark allowing the awakening of your other senses. There is an additional charge for this attraction, but it allows the financing of equipment for the use of blind people. However, this attraction is not wheelchair accessible at all.
