It's official... Asterix and his friends will soon be visiting your town! The American company SEE Touring Attractions, producer of the Star Trek and Titanic touring attractions, made the announcement at this year's Frankfurt Book Fair. The Asterix Tour will be truly European, traveling across Germany, France, Spain, Belgium, and the Netherlands, to mention just a few...

For fans, the Asterix Tour will represent a brand new experience, offering complete immersion in their favourite heroes' world. In an Indomitable Gaul-themed space, a whole host of interactive activities will let you experience the more memorable moments in the Asterix albums thanks to state-of-the-art technology.

Visit the Pyramids (and meet Cleopatra), climb the Swiss Alps in search of the Silver Star, head out to sea with the pirate crew, meet Asterix and Obelix in their village, battle the Roman legions, travel through the ancient world on Watziznehm's magic carpet, all thanks to exhilarating 4-D facilities...In short, the Asterix Tour is like a large cauldron of magic potion bubbling away in your town centre for more than three months, offering a thrilling adventure to everyone who drinks from it!

The Asterix Tour is not only a fun destination for the whole family with its video games, attractions and film projections, it is also a museum dedicated to the world created by René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo, as well as a shopping centre with the most amazing Asterix merchandise and exclusive Asterix Tour goodies. In fact, the hardest part of all this will be to wait until the start of the Asterix Tour, planned in Frankfurt for next autumn.

 

Fortunately, our druids have prepared a potion to help you wait: a video presenting the tour is currently available on the Asterix Tour website. This will be updated with regular video bulletins reporting on progress made during the preparation of this exciting 'first'. We will of course also keep you informed here of any Asterix Tour developments, beginning in the coming weeks, with the tour schedule and list of towns to be visited by Asterix and his friends!
