Editorial review

Easily accessible thanks to its TGV station, Futuroscope is an ideal amusement park for family outings. The majority of activities are accessible to all, and are based on the use of new image and simulation technologies. Futuroscope will be particularly appreciated by children from 6 to 12 years old and even older ones, who will find their happiness among the many attractions that play on perception and sensations, as well as Futuropolis the last universe of the park. With its water games, playgrounds, trampolines and sandboxes, Futuropolis easily accommodates the little ones. Some attractions, such as Les Apprentis Pompiers or Mission: Eclabousse!, can even be enjoyed by several people. Fans of roller coasters or other roller coasters may not be satisfied, but thrill seekers will certainly be satisfied by the Dance of the Robots, which will have them twirling in all directions against the backdrop of Martin Solveig, or even the Turbo Splash of Futuropolis, a boat that flies through the air. And that’s not all: the Aerobar and the Gyrotour will make everyone gain height. One of the most of the park also lies in its many well-maintained relaxation areas, perfect for taking a break between two attractions, and recharging your batteries. Its major asset remains the accessibility of the attractions to all, thus ensuring a primarily family experience.
