A different kind of leisure park experience
With more than 40 million visitors since it opened, Futuroscope is one of the best-loved leisure parks in France and the only one of its kind in Europe.
Futuroscope is the ideal place to relax in, with 60 hectares of tranquil green countryside and 25 original experiences you won't find anywhere else: films in giant format, thrill-filled attractions, 3D rides with 4D effects, games, live shows, open-air activities, and more...
The spectacular theatres inside Futuroscope are gigantic sculptures and their futuristic lines blend in smoothly with the surrounding landscape.
Discovery and thrills guaranteed for everyone, young and old!
The time machine, an incredible journey back in time with the raving rabbits
Futuroscope has cranked up this attraction with a unique blend of art and technology to bring visitors an all-out intensive immersive experience. The moving platform and polarized glasses take the audience through 4 historical scenes, each bursting with thrill after thrill against backdrops that merge with 3D computer-generated images and are boosted by 4D effects, and immersing them in a key moment from History
This IMAX 3D adventure propels young audiences out to the Hubble Space Telescope to join the crew of the space shuttle Atlantis on a high-stakes repair mission. Their aim is to keep Hubble observing. This rescue operation takes visitors on a journey to explore nebulae, galaxies, and stars, and to unveil the mysteries of the universe.
Visitors are shrunk to a microscopic size and sent hurtling on a simulator ride into the human body, where they have to pass through muscle tissue, meander down the digestive system, and fight off white blood cells in order to wipe out a dreaded virus – all with only a few minutes to do it in.
The Aerobar lifts twelve lucky guests 115 foot in the air with drink (and snack) in hand to have twelve minutes of spectacular views over the Park. This is an entirely unusual experience in the foodtainment mould and can be enjoyed with family and friends.
Feet dangling from the airship – you will not have drunk a glass of champagne from this position ever!
The best-of Futuroscope
Dances with Robots remixed by Martin Solveig
This star attraction gets a new club beat this year as ten 23-ft-high robot arms pick up their passengers and perform a series of brand new dance routines to remixes from the famous DJ, in time with breathtaking lighting and special effects. Get back into the groove!
"The Robothespian" who welcomes you inside the attraction has been created by the British Company "Engineered Arts".
Arthur, the 4D Adventure
Directed by Luc Besson (director of The Fifth Element, Leon, and The Big Blue), Arthur the 4D adventure takes young visitors into the make-believe world of the Minimoys. The full array of image technologies (3D modelling, large-format IMAX 3D images, motion simulator and physical effects in the theatre) and the creative flair seen in the Minimoys world thrust young visitors on a roller coaster ride of excitement and thrills.
This attraction has received in 2012 the TEA award for Outstanding achievement.
