What is difficult with a park like this is the 'future' element - the bosses need to keep up-to-date continuously with tech. Inevitably this means that the park seems slightly out of date, or over-enthusiastic about certain technologies. We, as a family, had a great time - the kids really loved it. We, as parents, found it a bit repetitive with most rides being based on the kind of 4D or 5D experiences sat on a chair. Most of the 'rides' are about 10mins long, so queuing for around 45 mins (in the quiet season) was long for such a short event. I was expecting more educational and cutting-edge elements to the experiences, but no; it's a theme park. The restauration was good, and we really really appreciated the design of the waiting areas; they have designed waiting areas that are distracting and protected from the elements; bravo!

Futuroscope is a family theme park with an emphasis on technology and visual effects (3D, 4D) and an extensive playground for children (“Futuropolis”). Apart from a few attractions (“Mission to Mars”, “Dancing with robots”) I suspect it will not appeal to genuine thrillseekers. The various attractions and shows come with background stories and props and are very well executed and entertaining, although often somewhat short. Sadly, dialogue is only in french and no subtitles are provided. Futuroscope is clean and we always felt safe. The park was not crowded. Wearing a mask is compulsory in all attractions and dispensers of liquid to clean hands are available everywhere. One day is sufficient to experience all attractions (apart from “Futuropolis”). Personal favorites include “Extraordinaire voyage”, “Age de glace”, “Illusio”, “Le mystère du kube”, “Kinékid” and “Arthur”. A bracelet allows visitors to leave Futuroscope and come back in later the same day.

Went to Futuroscope last weekend They re open mid june due to Covid Issue and the number of visitors is now limited which is a very good thing to avoid crowd and queuing. As young parents, we could really realized that this park is offering services adapted to us. I found baby center where I could change the diaper, and breast feed my baby boy. The staff is cleaning each attraction after each play which makes us feel safe in a certain way, but we kept washing our hands anytime we passed nearby the restroom. Futuroscope has many attractions to play, and with the social distancing, it is less crowdy, it was the good time to visit this park again.

Great place to visit with teenagers But definitely best to look out for offers on the price and be prepared to queue for a long time

My parents are from the Cognac region and took me there the first time a year after its opening when I was in my early teens. I have been many times since and now I live in the uk but last year took my then 10 year old son. Over the years, it has massively expanded and has now about 25 pavillions showing differents types of high tech movies (3D, Imax, moving seats, combination of all of theses...). It is great entertainment and a fantastic day out. All the movies are shown in french but I believe you can borrow a translation unit. We went last year for Easter just before the start of the french holidays and we managed to see everything and some of the favourites multiple times. You will not be able to do this in the summer months when you will most likely need 2 days due to the very long queues. It is very well suited for children of all age but, I think a good age to start is around 8-9 years. Any younger and they won't be able to go in some of the pavillions due to height restriction, and also some of the movies are documentaries that might really bore very young children. There are restaurants on site too, but you can take your own picnic and sit on the numerous benches you'll find across the park. So, nothing like your traditional park with lots of rides but definitely worth a visit. We are thinking about going back this year...
