The day started badly with the unpleasant surprise of a 7 euro car park fee in addition to the entrance fee. A rip-off in my opinion. The park looks pleasant enough with nicely tended gardens and some very interesting sculptures and futuristic architecture. The problem, however is the ridiculous amount of time spent waiting for short 'animations'. For instance, a wait of 88 minutes for a 5 minute 3D 'ride'. The actual animation was OK but definitely not worth the long wait. Other waits listed on the Futuroscope app were 77 minutes and 85 minutes- both for very short activities. Not acceptable. The brand new (2018) "Through Thomas Pesquet's Eyes' was interesting enough but I saw a very similar film taken from the international space station 24 years ago! There was no information about how long you would have to wait and most of the waiting was inside, where the queues snaked round and round in claustophibic, dark and sometimes smelly rooms. After just over 3 hours and having seen just 2 events, we decided we couldn't stand another long boring wait for a short event so we left. Life is too short. Spend your hard earned money on a better day out. Puy du Fou is miles better,
