The Parc du Futuroscope is a different kind of leisure park experience for all the family! – a theme park based upon multimedia, cinematographic futuroscope and audio-visual techniques. It has several 3D cinemas and a few 4D cinemas (not sure what a 4D cinema is, though) along with other attractions and shows, some of which are unique in the world.

It is immensely popular. In 2010 the Futuroscope had 1.826 million visitors!
