McCownGordon was selected for the construction of an African Sky Safari for the Kansas City Zoo. The attraction allows zoo visitors to experience the safari animals in a new, up-close and personal way. Suspended 35 feet in the air, the ride provides an exciting view to the zoo’s cheetahs, lions, giraffes and rhinos, and lands near one of the best chimpanzee exhibits in the world. The aerial ride spans a length of 1,450 linear feet and is capable of holding a maximum of 140 people at one time. Construction also included the landing and loading areas for the ride.
