Autopia Paris

Beep beep! En route pour Disneyland Paris! The European Disney Park has recently revamped their Autopia attraction and it is better than ever. From the overall appearance of the ride to the energy-friendliness, it seems not an area has been left untouched and if it weren’t an ocean away we’d be on it now!

Having opened in April of 1992, and as one of the oldest rides in the park, Autopia has been due for an update. It was closed back on November 4th, 2018 for just that purpose, with the promise that it would reopen in late 2019. The entire track got a renewal, and now each vehicle has its own unique color scheme from a fresh paint job. All elements have had a color touch-up, including the now-metallic coils that reach into the sky. But the work has taken on more depth than simple aesthetics; projectors have been replaced with 1500 LED lights, reducing the electric power from 450 kilowatts to 42 kilowatts. That’s a major difference in energy that also enables the dynamic lights to change colors. The lights will be used to tell a story about ”Discoveryland” (Disneyland Paris’ version of Tomorrowland) from the rooftops.

The changes were developed by a team of Imagineers and carried out by a dedicated construction team over the last year. All in all, Autopia is almost a new ride, and guests will be able to enjoy its fresh appeal for years to come. Disneyland Paris, nous avons hâte de voire!
