Futuro ouverture hotelhotel original big

Futuroscope is a theme park that invites visitors of all ages to discover the latest innovations within the entertainment industry through 3D and 4D films, spectacular shows, robots and rides. Fun and educational, the park proposes twenty-five different attractions or “experiences” that demonstrate the fast-evolving world of audio-visual technology. The site also includes seven themed restaurants and twelve partner hotels. Besides the amusements, Futuroscope is also a technopole – a creative, dynamic technology hub that brings together universities, researchers and enterprising businesses with the intention of breaking boundaries in the field of entertainment.

Many visitors choose to stay in a hotel for a night or two between travelling and exploring the park. There are plenty of accommodation solutions on offer, including twelve partner hotels on site and a range of hotels in the surrounding area.

A few practical details about Futuroscope

Futuroscope receives nearly 2-million visitors every year – a grand total of over 43-million since it first opened in 1987 – making it the second-most popular theme park in France after Disneyland Paris. Where is Futuroscope? The theme park is located in the department of Vienne, 10 kilometres north of Poitiers in the municipalities of Chasseneuil-du-Poitou and Jaunay-Clan. It can be accessed by the A10 motorway (exit 28), by the Route Nationale 10 (RN10) or by the dedicated TGV station. When can you go? Futuroscope is open every day during the spring and summer from 9 or 10am to 8 or 9pm, depending on the period. During the autumn and winter, the park is only open at weekends and some weekdays, and the entire site is shut for one month between mid-January and mid-February. See the website for information on exact times and dates. How much does it cost? The basic ticket price for entry to the park is €42 for adults and €32 for children under sixteen (€20 and €14 for evening entry from €5pm), though the price is slightly lower if tickets are booked in advance. Buying passes for multiple consecutive days also works out cheaper. Attractive promotional deals are offered in partnership with the park’s hotels, with rates starting at €43.50 per person per day for accommodation and entrance (based on a package of two nights and a two-day pass). Check the website for up-to-date information on prices and booking.

Staying within the park

The twelve affiliated hotels are all located within a few-hundred metres of the park’s entrance, meaning guests can easily get between the two by foot. Starting at the high end, the Hôtel Plaza and its “Top Club Plaza” rooms offer guests a 4-stars experience with a considerable level of sophistication. Close behind the Plaza in terms of style and standards are the Novotel Poitiers Futuroscope and the Mercure Aquatis. As for 3-stars, the Ibis, the Inter-Hôtel Altéora and the Campanile Poitiers Futuroscope are all worthy of their grading. In the budget category is the 2-star Jules Verne –a hit with younger visitors for its themed décor – plus the Hôtel du Parc (1-star), which offer basic but modern facilities.
