My wife thinks this is a 'boy-thing' and I must admit that I did enjoy visiting it.
Unfortunately, the afternoon that we visited the huge mechanical elephant was out of operation for maintenance and wasn't moving, and the carousel was in viewing, not riding, mode. But there were school groups in The Machine Gallery where examples of the fantastic machines were in operation and ridden by wide-eyed kids. My favourite was the caterpillar and the lad riding it quickly mastered how to move forwards and back.
It's easy to reach this attraction by tram from the Gare de Nantes. The city of Nantes looked very attractive and we would have liked having more time to explore.
