PARC DES CHANTIERS
LE CARROUSEL DES MONDES MARINS
LES MACHINES DE L’ÎLE

This merry-go-round (85 feet high, 65 feet in diameter) is an incredible sculpture dedicated to the sea.

Its creators, Pierre Orefice and François Delarozière, invite the visitor to embark on an aquatic voyage spread over three floors inside a concrete filigree. The carrousel is capped with a circus tent decorated with pediments and protected by 16 fishermen from the different oceans of the world. From the abyss of the ocean floor to the surface of the sea, discover incredible sea creatures: giant crabs, pirate fish, reverse-thrust squids, Manta rays, jellyfish…

In 2015, Le Poisson coffre (“box-fish”) joins the Carrousel des Mondes Marins. It is located on the deep-sea level and is the 3rd element offering a chance to plunge deep down into the salle des machines. Four people can sit in its 3.5-metre (11.5-foot) long case. But beware: down here, strange sea creatures appear.
