Top European theme park announces brand new ride and musical show launching next year | The Sun

A TOP European theme park has announced several brand-new attractions ahead of its 35th anniversary next year.

The French theme park already has 50 attractions set across six themed zones, including Gaul, the Roman Empire, and Ancient Greece.

But ahead of its 35th anniversary, Parc Asterix has announced a host of new attractions.

One of those is The Tower of Numerobis, which is slated to open in March 2024, according to a press release from the French theme park.

Set in the theme park's Egyptian Zone, the new attraction will suspend parkgoers 40m into the air, before rotating them around the top of the ride, ahead of its descent back down to earth.

Next year, the European theme park will also be introducing its first-ever musical.
