The Simon Skjodt International Orangutan Center at the Indianapolis Zoo is scheduled to open on May 24th and with it the first ever SkyQuest people mover. The Skyline, as they call it, will allow guests to have an unprecedented experience with the orangutans. Traveling around approximately 1,100 feet of track in a 4 passenger gondola you will be at heights of nearly 60 feet in the air where you can be face to face with the orangutans as they explore their habitat. This exhibit is being called one of the most significant zoo exhibits anywhere in the world. Chance Rides is proud to have done its part in making this project a reality.
