H.G. Wells has been known for his hatred of Jules Verne, but perhaps even he would admit that a steam punk amusement park, based on Verne's writings, is an entertaining idea. Or at least that a steam punk amusement park based on Verne's writing is completely appropriate for other, less flattering, reasons.
Les Machines de l’île is a 333 acre amusement park in Nantes, Verne's hometown. If you like steam punk, love to indulge your steam punk-loving kids, and find Paris too nice for the likes of you but want to spend a fortune in France anyway, then this is definitely worth checking out.
