The theme parc, which is the second largest in France, uses a combination of films on giant cinema screens that appear above your head, below your feet and all around to give you a sense of flying, racing and rushing across incredible landscapes or through the seas. You’ll meet dinosaurs, incredible vessels and even giant robot hands that spin you round to a rock-and-roll rhythm. And if all that sounds too energetic, there are many more sedate activities when you need a breather.
Of the new attractions, stand outs include The Blue Note Mystery Evening Show, a musical fairytale which blends giant images on water screens, special effects, lasers and lights; Cosmic Collisions, which is a film about the cosmic crashes that our shaping the universe, shown on a dome screen so the images appear above and all around you; and Fly Me To The Moon, a 3D film shown on a giant Imax screen, about three flies who space-hop on to the legendary Apollo 11 moon flight.
I love Futuroscope precisely because there is so much to interact with, and because it’s unlike anything I’ve ever seen in the UK. It’s well worth a day-trip if you’re travelling to France’s west coast.
