Whimsical discombobulated pakiderm reminds of the Trojan horse, but with side entrance giving the game away. A fun display well-photographed. I assume limited space led to the construction of the staircase, to allow long lineups? Like.

Nantes is the birthplace of Jules Verne. They have an exhibit/museum/installation there accessed from the top of a cliff and it goes down (a long way down). They call it "Journey to the Center of the Earth". This looks like it might be at the bottom??
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Hollow, with side balconies and viewing platform on top, trumpheting, flapping its ears, squirting water out of its waving trunk at squealing children, and plodding along at the develish rate of 3kph (or less). This was photographed with the beast releasing passengers onto the gangway to the Carousel (a whole program in itself).
