WhiteWater Providing Water Transportation System for New Zoo Miami Experience

Richmond, BC, Canada — WhiteWater Attractions unveiled a brand new project at the 2014 AZA Annual Conference in Orlando, Florida along with Eric Stephens, Zoo Miami Director, and representatives from PCL Construction, the main contractor for the latest expansion.

“We are very excited to begin construction of our new front entry and Florida: Mission Everglades as I know that it will be a beautiful addition to the zoo and well worth the wait.” comments Stephens.

The new exhibit, called Florida: Mission Everglades, includes a Water Transportation System that will feature a custom themed eight passenger vehicle designed to look like an everglades air boat. The exhibit will incorporate special effects to best replicate the environment of the everglades, providing fun for the whole family with accessibility to even the youngest children. The custom designed Water Transportation System ride path has been developed to weave through the exhibit complex, immersing guests in an experience that can only be beat by a visit to the actual Florida Everglades.

Visitors should expect to have an entirely new experience upon entry of Zoo Miami coming in the summer of 2016.
