Futuroscope is just over half an hour's drive from your holiday home in Les Forges. This amusement park in Poitiers is one of the largest and most popular theme parks in France with around 2 million visitors a year. Futuroscope differs from the usual parks, the park has futuristic attractions in the field of technology, film and multimedia. The park has IMAX movie screens of 900m2, 4D effects and shows where you take a dive into the future. It's a modern, open-plan park that looks like a city from the future. Films, robotic arms, simulators and interactive games; this all makes for a very special and innovative day out during the holidays.
Futuroscope, a combination of science and fun
The park has sixteen large buildings each in their own unique shape and construction. These buildings all house different shows. There are cinemas with interactive films, such as the "Dance avec les robots". In this film you sit in a robot arm and move up to a height of 7 meters to the beat of music. "The Best of Dynamic Cinema" is also quite a sensation. Here you sit in a bobsleigh and race with enormous speed around a circuit. And have you ever experienced what it feels like to stand on a raft and race down a wild river? For some time now, Futuroscope has also had a roller coaster. This is no ordinary roller coaster though; you will be tested here with whether you would be suitable to go to Mars as an astronaut in the year 2040. Experience what it's like to watch a 3D movie without glasses or sit in a flying theater which goes around the world.
