Parc Futuroscope, in Poitiers, France, quietly shut down the European clone of IMAX’s “Race for Atlantis,” replacing it in April with the new “Arthur: The 4D Adventure” attraction. The new attraction features new motion carriages and 4D effects supplied by English firm Simworx and a CG film directed by “Arthur” creator Luc Besson. Unlike Universal’s “Back to the Future” domes, which switched to SONY SXRD digital projectors for “The Simpsons Ride,” a park source confirms that “Arthur” uses 15/70 film running through the attraction’s original IMAX Solido projector. The original “Race for Atlantis,” a partnership between IMAX and Caesar’s World, opened in 1998 at the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, NV. After Caesars backed out of the project, the attraction continued to run as part of IMAX’s Owned & Operated theater group through 2004, after which it was replaced by a luxury automobile showroom.
