We know what you’re thinking: LVMH, the luxury powerhouse that holds Louis Vuitton, Dior, Fendi, Marc Jacobs and others, is creating a fashion-themed amusement park. While the company, who has managed the historical Jardin d’Acclimatation since 1984, is revamping the Paris landmark, the theme will be less fashion-driven and more science fiction-focused.
After a $71.5 million refurbishment, the park will re-open as early as next year. Sources say visitors can expect less Louis Vuitton trunks and more Mad Max-inspired rides, as the rides will be focused on “steampunk,” a genre of science fiction that incorporates industrial elements.
To transform this theme park from sprawling gardens to the mega-amusement park they hope for, 17 Jules Verne-inspired attractions, such as stables and aviaries, will be restored, in addition to brand-new rides and classic theme park elements.
How’s that for joie de vivre? Stay tuned for the exact opening date and further details come 2018!
