Year 8 pupils have been looking at the Futuroscope website.

Futuroscope is a theme park in the Vienne departement of France, about 10km north of Poitiers. Click the image or go to www.futuroscope.com. There is an English version of the website – look for the flags in the top right.

It was opened in 1987, and the attractions are mainly based on multimedia, and audio-visual techniques, with a few “slide down the ramp and get wet” rides thrown in (have  a look at the “Le Splash des Loustics” or “Nipper Dipper” video on the website).

If you were visiting Futuroscope, where would you go first?

The buildings, or pavillons at Futuroscope are part of the attraction. They are built of metal and glass and come in all sorts of shapes and sizes.

Which one do you like most?
