A Steampark Park of Jules Verne. "In France, a steampunk park of Jules Verne’s dreams," by Hana Shank. BBC Travel,[1] 09 October 2014.

On a theme park in Nantes[2]: "Les Machines de l’île" is a totally unprecedented artistic project. Born from the François Delarozière and Pierre Orefice’s imagination, it is at crossroads of Jules Verne’s 'invented world,' of the mechanical universe of Leonardo da Vinci, and of Nantes’ industrial history, on the exceptional site of the former shipyards." See (for as long as the pages are available) for a mechanical elephant of impressive size, and mechanical bug identified by Shank as a spider but looking also like a grasshopper — plus other images of interest.
