  • If possible take the "premium pass" (€15 / pers) allowing ultra fast and privileged access to 5 attractions with + tail (no tail against 45 min to 1 h without pass)-top Attractions: "law of the jungle" (excellent 3D experience, exceptional video quality) & 'dance with the robots' (innovative, never seen elsewhere)-Attractions: "cosmic shock" & "the explorarium" are very informative , "the machine has time travel" and "Arthur 3D" highly valued children. Show iMagic very well! -Attractions to avoid or aging: "ice age" (missed 4 d = 3D + some spit in the face), "dynamic" (film without interest with seats that move you in all directions), "dynamic Vienna" (top 20 years ago but aging idea) predict 1j 1/2-2j especially if you do not take premium pass. A slight need for innovation to continue to be the - FUTURE-noculars...

  • Friendly and pleasant attractions, the advantage is that even if this one is conceived in a pleasant way is to say that there is always one activity or something to do while waiting for the blow this one goes very fast restaurants are mobbed during strong periods: plan sandwiches (from benches to eat) the positive staff very very nice and always ready to invite them to join the nearest attraction or the one with least waiting parking is paying 7 euros but other alternatives are possible, and almost all hotels are accessible by a pedestrian path to qques Park min

  • A day at futuroscope on November 11, 2016: 43euro + 7 parking for a low season euro is expensive to park. Attraction, apart from 2 or 3 enabled, the rest missing d originality, I can very well at home watch stories on france 5 or arte... and it will do the same. It n nothing futuristic, now there's virtual reality helmets that make bcp better... I think that he will be able to invest more in the new d screen as 4 k or 8 k resolution! And big negative, the Park is not informed enough at night and read the c is galley! The evening show is at 9:30, a little late especially when it's 5 degrees and the benches were wet...

  • An absolute amazing day out! Easy to find with paid onsite parking. We went the day after the French kids had gone back to school and it was empty so we had he run of the place. When busy I image it's a different story but so much to see, do and experience. Easily spend more that a day there checking out all the different sections to the place! Highly recommended!!
  • I am not a lover of theme parks as I can't stand the rides, however, this one ids different, it is well laid out and the shows are short and timed in such a way as it it easy to watch a show and walk to the next one without rushing. The night show is well worth staying for and again was far better than I was expecting. The kids loved it and I am already being hassled to go back next year.
  • We'll organised, clean, good value. Low waiting times and excellent attractions. Super customer service with helpful, friendly staff.
  • Nice park with beautiful lanes with flowers. Music everywhere in superior quality. Pity that all attractions are facilitated in French only. At Sept 1 it is lovely quiet here but with impact that some attractions are closed or open later.
  • If you really want to go to this place take a picnic, as at the end of August, all of the eateries on site were closed until 3.30 pm. King Arthur's buffet in the evening offers no children's options. Some of the attractions are, frankly, naff, and very short, a few minutes long. No clear route round the park, you end up wandering around lost half the time. For two adults and a child, with one night at the hotel and a lousy buffet it came to over €300, I really do advise you to spend it elsewhere. €7 to park too, cheeky gits
