  • The Futuroscope park is well organized and have many different attraction for every ages.We stayed there for one day and despite not being able to do every attraction,we still did everything that we wanted.It's definitely a great place to go.Only negative point (not specific to the Futuroscope as the same apply to other park) is the food,the food is bad/poor quality and overpriced.
  • We were the first Brazilian family to visit the amusement park at Poitier, few years ago... It's a very modern and technological park, something similar to Epcot Center(future world). The attractions are outstanding , and you have a TGV station a few steps away the main entrance(1:15 from Paris)
  • You'll find plenty theaters, some in 4D, some in 3D and with various technology (Spherical theater, 4K Imax, ...) but the theme is recurrent. No roller coasters or other attractions. Watch for the queues as all the animations start at a specific time and can take up to 45 minutes. I'd recommend to go there out of the peak time.
  • Great place to go with kids. It's also fun to go as an adult. The evening show which is put on by Cirque de Soleil it is a waste of time however. Is basically a one woman show backed by lots of lights and video. The woman just ride to swing back-and-forth the whole time. Nothing like the Cirque du Soleil shows that I've seen in the past.
  • What a place! We've visited most years since 2002 and enjoy going every single time. There are always new attractions which keep the park exciting. Certainly worth the visit!
