I'm taking my 10 year old little boy to Futuroscope for 2 days with a cheap Ryanair flight. Last time I went I had my car so I didn't stay there. Should I get a hotel near the park or stay in Poitiers city centre? Is the bus service from the centre to the park good?
Sounds like fun. Here is their web site in English and you can check the train and bus schedules. http://uk.futuroscope.com/acces.php
It says, "If you arrive at the Poitiers station (center city), you can get to the Parc du Futuroscope by taxi or bus (lines 9 and E) operated by Vitalis:"
There is a link to click to download a PDF file with bus schedules.
If you aren't interested in visiting Poitiers, you might enjoy just staying at Futuroscope and avoiding the transportation problem entirely because there is a TGV station right at the park. The web site lists 12 hotels within a 10-minute walk. We camped nearby but it was more than a walk from the park.
