Inspired by Miniature Wunderland Hamburg, Mini World Lyon. The project has taken over two years of construction and many more of planning.
Good news and a small delay
A local Leisure investment group has been following the project and has offered a better location in greater Lyon, that is served by the Metro and trams. There are now direct links to the main stations and the airport at Lyon-Saint Exupéry.
The new location is Loisirs du Carré de Soie, à Vaulx-en-Velin
The site and investment has allowed the team to increase the layout from 2,000m2 to 4,000m2.
