OUR ANIMATED MINIATURE WORLDS

Immerse yourself in the enchantment and humour of our miniature animated worlds. City, mountain and countryside landscapes as far as the eye can see and our new world: our Mini Lyon and its Festival of Light !

Discover Lyon city and its Festival of Lights in miniature

More than 1000 buildings reproduced, 35 000 mini characters, thousands of vehicles, 50 000 hours of work, 20 people at work… Nothing’s too big for our Mini Lyon ! From the Tête d’Or park to Fourvière Hill through Rhône’s swimming pool or Bellecour Square, travel through the emblematical places of the beautiful city of Lyon. This new miniture world made in 3 sections, separated, like in the real city, by the two rivers, Saône and Rhône. 

A spectacular scenography awaits you, made by lights and projections that recreates the day and the night on Lyon’s roofs with the rivers sinking into the horizon. Each night, some of the most beautiful works of the Festival of Lights’ history set the the front of representative buildings of the city aglow… Rendez-vous from the 20th december 2018 to the complete opening of this new world.

In the heart of our city, this is a whole world which is animated!

Contemplate the cathedral by night with its projections of lights, participate to the bustling fairground, and follow the daily life of our mini-inhabitants. An immersion in an urban universe full of surprises is waiting for you, at the pace of the cars, trucks, bus and trains traffic. All the elements of a city have been reproduced, but with the Mini World Lyon touch! Chickens are pecking in front of the police headquarters, all kinds of swimmers and water sports enthusiasts have gone to the municipal pool, cinema studios are ready to start filming, several animals have invaded the streets … Keep your eyes open!

What do you think about a country walk?

Let’s go to our countryside world! In the middle of the wheat fields, look at the farmers working, the tractors running and the combine harvesters in action! A bit further, you will stride along the streets and paths of the backers’ village and camping, born after a crowdfunding campaign organised to support Mini World Lyon.This world is the theatre of several well-known movies references: Edward Scissorhands, The Shining, Alice in Wonderland, Mary Poppins … Will you be able to find them? Do not either miss our recreational area with its drive-in and rock music festival, before contemplating the wonderful and colourful illuminations on the power plant. The visit of this world finishes in a particular atmosphere. Zombies have invaded an old abandoned factory!

Winter stands alongside the summer on the slopes of our mountains!

There is but a short step between the snow-covered slopes of our ski resort and the Alpine green pastures! Colourful atmospheres animate the Mountain world: Christmas market and choir, stage of the Tour de France, peaceful village of Savoie, competition of acrobatic mountain bike, skaters sliding on a frozen canal… there is something for every taste!

MANY REFERENCES TO SEARCH WITH FAMILY OR FRIENDS!

With the guide given to you at the entrance, go in search of dozens of references to films, cartoon series and pop culture.

Titanic, La Casa de Papel, The Visitors, the Minions or Scooby Doo, there is something for all tastes and all ages!

DAY / NIGHT CYCLE: From dawn to dusk

A special lights cycle of 20 minutes reproduces atmospheres and colours from sunrise to sunset, thanks to wall projections and dedicated spots of light. Each part of the worlds deserves to be seen in these different atmospheres. During the day, you will enjoy watching the thousands of scenes of life and animations overflowing from our worlds. But when night starts to fall, the vehicles progressively turn on their lights and headlamps, and you discover a very new side of our park, full of enchantment.
