After successfully delivering a visitor experience plan and developing concept visuals to build community support and drive fundraising, LCZ reengaged Roto’s services to design and build two of the concepts established by Roto’s master plan.  The bespoke elephant climber and nature play experiences add charm and genuine human connection to the usual animal exhibit encounter.

The outdoor play experience -- Ellie the Elephant, a 40’ tall sculptural icon -- invites kids to climb and explore, peer out over the giraffe yard from her oversized eyes and slide down from her 25’ twisty trunk playground slide. The Secret Jungle, an indoor playground, simulates an interactive jungle-like environment where kids can climb all the way up a 24’ high climber with live monkeys then make their way down the longest tornado slide in Lincoln.
