Futuroscope

 

The park, just north of Poitiers ,with its 3 millions visitors a year has enjoyed spectacular success since its creation in 1987. Devoted to image, audiovisual techniques and special effects it is a great day out for all the family.

With its futuristic architecture Futuroscope is a theme park with a difference, you can see 3D films on the giant ,flat, circular or spherical screens: Dynamic cinema, new video techniques and virtual pictures....this is not a theme park in the style of 'Alton Towers' as there are no rollercoasters.... but it makes for a good day out for the kids just the same.

 


See Kinemax films on a seven stories high screen, or a 360 į film ...or the famous Magic carpet with huge screen under your feet...Dive at the speed of light into  the city of Atlantis in the "Race for Atlantis  ...you are in the heart of the action and you’ll feel part of the experience.

The attractions include, ‘Magic Carpet’, ‘Adrenaline Rush’, ‘The Race for Atlantis’ and ‘Space Station’, which allow you to experience breathtakingly realistic sensations of flying, falling, underwater exploration and space travel.

 

 

 

The spectacular laser show at dusk adds the finishing touch to a great day out.

 

 

 


There are three major new attractions giving robots star billing at Futuroscope : Le Zoo des Robots (The Robot Zoo), a fun, interactive attraction for all the family to enjoy, La ForÍt des RÍves (The Forest of Dreams), the spectacular new evening show, and Danse avec les Robots (Dances with Robots), a staggering ride that combines state-of-the-art technology and artistic skill.
