Didn't have the elephant ride but saw it walking. Fantastic, truly original and very beautiful. Quite impressive for adults and most likely unbelievable for kids!

If you have three or four hours to spare in Nantes you must go to the Machines des Iles which is on the island. The mechanical machines are unbelievable, and if you have some French then you will find the commentary that accompanies is also very amusing. But best of all is the ride on the 40 foot high mechanical elephant which travels around the park, closely followed by the children trying (not very successfully) to avoid the water spray from its trunk. Only downside is it took us an hour to queue for the tickets so my advice is get there early - we arrived at 11 a.m.

Even with the plodding pace aboard this mechanical pachyderm it was quite thrilling. Perfect escape and fantasy. Great for the whole family

Interesting place for kids, but as a older adult, less interesting. Not a lot to see/do. This was on our GCCL agenda.

We went here on sunday last during our two day stay in Nantes. An incredibly unusual and wacky thing. We had tried booking tickets on the internet before we went, but it only seened to run on a saturday and sunday, and i never seemed to be able to book more than 1 ticket. According to our hosts when we arrived in this very attractive city, it runs daily but they only allow Internet booking for the weekend. They suggested that you need to turn up about 15 minutes before it opens at 1000 and wait for the kiosk to open. They then just slot you in to an available space and you have to come back. For us this could potentially mean spending the whole of our one full day trying to get on this so we didn't bother. We don't feel hard done by as it was fun to watch it go by and is worth seeing.

First of all, I jigjagged across France from Burgundy to Picardie and places in between, Nantes is by any measure the place with Minnesota-like nice people. A bus driver at the airport got off the bus to show us how to use ticket machines, people on the street and at the hotel were above and beyond nice. Then there are the things to see in town, especially the Iles des Machines Mechanic and riding the elephant! We ate at the historic La Cigale, saw the castle, went to the Lieu Unique for dinner, visited the art museum, and walked the historic parts of the city. It was a very fine weekend.

We visited last April, three adults and a 5y/o. The entrance line was pretty long (around 15 minutes). One adult is handicapped, so they let us all go in together without waiting.
The ride takes 1/2 hour, it's really interesting walking inside the different parts of the elephant, watching the mechanical parts move and listening to the weird sounds they make.
We loved it!

Isn't this the only giant mechanical elephant in the world? Seeing it and riding on its back was an experience to behold! The ride costs 8.50 Euros and does not come free with the Nantes pass (only one from either the entrance to the gallery OR the tour of the Marine Carousel comes free with the pass). I booked a 1330H timeslot to ride the elephant, and there were more people then as compared to the 1030 timeslot.

The ride takes around 15-20 minutes and goes from the gallery to the carousel, and vice versa depending on where you bought your ticket.

While you're at it, I also highly recommend touring/ riding the Marine Carousel (6.90 Euros for ride+tour of the carousel, 4.90 Euros for tour only) and entering the Machines gallery. Over-all, it's an amazing experience for everyone-- especially for the kids!

Please go and see this exhibition, it is so worthwhile. Child or adult everyone will love it. Book tickets online if that option is available, as I had quite a wait. So glad I waited!!!
