Chester Zoo

Tue Dec 16, 2014 8:18 pm

As some of you may remember, it was announced a while back that Chester Zoo announced that it was building a new experience, the largest of it's kind in Europe estimated to add 1-2 hours to your visit to Chester Zoo. The experienced includes walks over specially crafted bridges from island to island, a walk through 'Monsoon Forest' which is the UK's largest indoor zoo exhibit and then a 15 minute Lazy River boat trip. There is now a minisite for the development where you can find out more information, view a virtual concept and enter a competition here.
This seems to be a huge project for Chester Zoo that they have spent lots of money on, it should be a great addition for families and a great development for them.

Chester Zoo (in my opinion) is one of the greatest zoo experiences in the UK and I am sure this large development will add a new dimension to the attraction. I also like the interactive aspect of this development, as it means guests can walk through habitats and experience the area/animals rather than just simply observe it.

A little news article about the project by The Liverpool Echo:

Nothing new but it shows a small time lapse of some of the site. It's starting to look like a great investment for the zoo :)
