Spent an enjoyable day with pals - enjoyed the planetarium most
Aug 2019
Most of the attractions were interesting and the park is well worth a visit -if you go in August expect long queues and that is the downside - slightly spoils it

The French cheap version of Epcot
Aug 2019
It's interesting, there are many shows both in person / 3D / 4D.

Science type shows, including space. The illusion and gymnastics shows we would recommend. The childrens area was really good for the hot weather we had when visiting.

The 10:15pm show is a must doo, even though it is late for the little ones.

We'll go to Puy du Fou next time (but that's as the kids will be slightly older then).

Excellent day out
Aug 2019 • Family
Highly recommended day out. Our 9 year old and 15 year old thoroughly enjoyed it. Don't expect roller-coaster rides, look at the website properly and you won't be disappointed. The light show at the end of the day was fabulous.

OMG EXCELLENT DAY
Aug 2019 • Family
Amazing day!

We were not very enthusiastic about going to another theme park. We have been to Eurodisney before and were disappointed and felt ripped off by that experience.

But we booked the hotel, HOTEL PLAZA for the night before and night after. (Great hotel!) There is a FREE shuttle bus for a few hours before lunch, then from evening to late. The hotel was 750 metres from the entrance to Futuroscope.

We went in 10am with our 2 children (9&7) and could not drag them out until 930pm!
BEFORE YOU LEAVE HOME
- Bring a towel and swimwear for the splash park to cool off.
- Download the app before going...tells you waiting times, maps, etc.
- Bring your own earphones for translation devices
ARRIVAL
- Get children's height measured by staff and get colour coded bracelet for ease of access to rides.
- Get translation device (free) but you need your own earphones
- If early aim to start at far end of park
FOOD
- Several food outlets, good selection, reasonable price
- Water fountains available to refill your bottles, staff all helpful.

ATTRACTIONS
- Waiting times maximum 25minutes, but the queues were generally in the shade or indoors, with entertainment/distractions whilst queuing.
- Great mix of thrills and virtual reality and shows and playgrounds and chill out beanbags.
- Great landscaping and trees where you can sprawl out or nap.
- Rides and shows in air-conditioned spaces.

Basically we loved it...and we do NOT normally like theme parks. It doesn't have rollercoasters (yet) but it has a futuristic, scientific and ecological theme. I would like to come back, kids too. Great value for money! Well done Futuroscope !

Great place
Aug 2019 • Family
We’ve been in futurscpe with kids at the age of: 3,5,8,10. Each of them had attractions to be at. This place is unique because it has a lot of simulators. Don’t miss the car racing attraction.

Great but expensive
Aug 2019 • Family
Went with kids ranging from 5 to 15. It is very expensive for admission and although it is good I do feel the price should be lower. Went to a lot of the shows, they did appeal more to younger kids. For example the magician was real cheesy 80's magic.

Family in motorhome
Jul 2019 • Family
Just had a wonderful time at the park. We arrived at 5 and left at 11 after the show. We walked into to most of the experiences. Loved the layout of the park with lots of areas to relax and enjoy the laid back atmosphere. We are staying onsite in our motorhome, 4 Euros to park and 2 for water. Will come again.

Stuck in the 80s , not very futuristic.
Jul 2019 • Family
Young children will no doubt love the futuropolis park which will keep small children amused but adults will be disappointed with the very dated 2d cinema...le monde invisible dome is ripped in places and looks ready to fall apart.. the food is very expensive and dreadful ....service station food is better! The most futuristic thing in the whole park might be the Dyson handwashing and dryer units in some of the toilets.

Funny week-end
May 2019 • Couples
We stayed 2 days in the park but I think one might be enough if there is not too much wait for the attractions. There are attractions for every age. The night show is really beautiful!
