Seems this has gone a bit under the radar. But Futuroscope have announced their 2024 ride as the first installation of Macks interesting looking rocking boat ride system.

The ride called Mission Bermuda will have a number of show scenes and I guess by the long straight section a proper drop.

Here's Mack's promo for the rocking boat concept


Here's a quote from the article about the ride system

Mission Bermuda consists of a hybrid Rocking Boat type attraction. A mix of scenic boat trips and the aquatic variation of a roller coaster. Installed on an area of 1.38 hectares, it will include a large exterior part and an interior. The course will notably be punctuated by two falls, one of 15 meters and the second behind, a rapids zone and an elevator.

The Rocking Boat transport system is developed by the famous German company Mack Rides , specialized in the design and production of large capacity attractions. This mixed system allows movements at height with high speeds and strong sensations. Movements in pools or canals without the water current being the vector of movements, which can appear unexpected, mysterious, integrating perfectly into the scenography of the course. Mission Bermuda will be the first of its kind in operation in the world.

It was originally planned for 2024, but has been pushed back to 2025. In 2024, Futuroscope will be opening two new family rides and a family theater. The rides are an ART Engineering Wild Swing (like FamilyPark in Austria is also adding) and a baby flume from either Zamperla or Soquet. The family theater will show family friendly films.

Two things have happened at Futuroscope lately.

The new Hydro Dynamo has opened today from ART Engineering. This is the 5th installation of its kind with at least two more on their way elsewhere.

In terms of Mission Bermudes itself, track has arrived onsite and even begun installation for the splashdown section. Much of this looks like it’s made for those sharp radiuses, but there’s definitely some regular coaster track for the splashdown.

Wow, we're a bit early into the construction, but someone just has to be first, huh? ;)
Traditionally, it's better to say it as soon as the possible. Full marks if you say so while the ride is only at the stage where it's rumoured/sort-of-just-speculated that the park may be adding a new coaster. However, it can only be said once per project.

Latest news from the construction:
Fatal accident at a construction site in Futuroscope!

A 23-year-old man had a fatal fall on Monday (16.04.24) at one of the Futuroscope construction sites. Investigations are underway to clarify the circumstances of this accident.

A 23-year-old young man died on Monday morning at the construction site of the future “Bermuda Mission” attraction in Futuroscope According to local police, he fell into a pipe and fell more than five meters deep. Rescuers were unable to revive him. “The victim fell from a great height onto a construction hitch,” the prosecutor said.

Due to the hard-to-access area, only the fire brigade could recover the body of the employee.

Investigations have now been launched to find out the cause of the fatal accident.

Awful to hear but on a tangent.

Verdict is in from Duane. Move to coaster construction? 😜

that's odd, I don't see Pirates of the Caribbean at Shanghai Disneyland listed? The boats there are also attached to track and it has a gravity drop. If the Rocking Boat is listed as a coaster, Pirates in Shanghai Disneyland is one as well.
