Just before Christmas, opening times were 10 til 10, everything open apart from a few restaurants, which are very expensive, longest waiting time was 40 minutes, but many were walk straight in. We all enjoyed ourselves immensely, parents and 9 year old. Car park 7 euros for the whole day. Water fountains, only found one and that didn't work, but... More

Went with my 4 year old and got a bit annoyed that we couldn't use lots of attractions because he was too young/short. Consequently, neither of us could use any rides as many had 1 hour waits. Other than that, it was pretty magical at night, with the Christmas decorations, and the final show was well done. I would recommend... More

Two seniors and one thirty year old. We enjoyed ourselves enormously. It was an antidote to Christmas blues. Our lunch in the big restaurant was excellent. We were on a day pass and managed most of the big attractions - it is mid winter - but extremely comfortable. Christmas decorations very pretty. All in all very good value for money.

We've been to Futuroscope at least six times now and it's always changing. Our visit yesterday was to see new attractions. First was Sky World, a ride that emulates an airline with check-in procedures (much faster obviously!) that results in a magnificent ride film strapped into seats where the floor drops away under your feet. Next was a film called... More

I went with my wife and 11 yr old grandson at the end of October 2016 when the queues were short. You need all day there. We were lucky and were able to get a special ticket price. Food was good. Most of the the attractions we saw were short with the longest being 25 minutes except The Cirque de... More

So this place takes some time to get to but its worth it for sure. Lots of shows, lots of things to do, affordable and the food is good. Not very crowded, well maintained, and pretty well designed as well. You stay busy and active the whole time you are there.

We wre on holiday near here so decided to pop in for a day out. This park opened at 0830h and we left at about 2345h after the light display. As this is in France we gogt some tanslators that could be used on some of the rides, although you didn't really need them to enjoy the ride. I think... More

We went with two teenagers in early October mid-week so it was reasonably quiet and it meant there was no queuing to do - great. It was a little on the expensive side at approx. £40 each. Even Universal Studios in LA was cheaper. The attractions were interesting although some seemed dated. I think it's one of those places you... More

We visited the Futuroscope in Poitiers on a rainy day last September. As its names indicates, the Futuroscope supposedly offers its visitors a peek into future technologies through a series of theme park attractions and imax type experiences. Well, it maybe did that 25 years ago. Today, the attractions are sadly dated, irritatingly patronising and gave the impression of being... More

We regret that you encountered different levels of dissatisfaction while visiting Futuroscope.

The park is renewed regularly and devotes a large part of its investments to creating new exciting attractions. If the park looks ahead to... More

We've had a house in the area for years but never visited. However having visited for the first time this year it's a must. So many great experiences and queueing wasn't so bad for peak season. 4D, multisensory and so on. Give it all a try.
