Nice! Very unique shape for a queue topper. (I was wondering what that thing was peeking through the trees in the previous post.) When today's images came up on my screen, I thought- African-themed carousel. The entrance to the queue looks nice, as well. And I love all the perspective lines in the station image.

Again, both were workshop items. I did have to add the panels and move the post supports around a lot to get it to fit, but most of the initial work was done by someone else.

I see the weather changes quickly and drastically in Planet Zoo. ;)  I also notice that some of the guests are reacting to the cold.

yep - they have that animation in game.

Here is an above shot of the next animal area. Mixed ungulate animals.



The yellow lines are viewing areas along normal pathways.
Orange lines are viewing areas that extend into the habitat.
Tan box in the upper right is the keeper area.
Blue box is the barn for these animals. There is also indoor viewing here. the indoor viewing is shared with the leopard viewing on the opposite side.
Lavender line is the monorail track that goes through this habitat.
Pink line is where the train ride enters and goes through this habitat.

When I read the word ungulates, I always think gelatinous blobs. :P

While there is the main indoor barn for the animals, there are also a number of open shelters around the habitat as well.

I like the last image best. It looks like a painting of a pastoral scene.
In the first pic, we get a nice view of a Bulbius Gluteus; subspecies- Azurium. Commonly known as a Big Blue Blob. Squishy and boneless, they are often mistaken for inanimate objects. Now THAT'S an ungulate! ;)

The 3rd image looks like another pastoral painting. All cow pastures have monorails running through them, right?

The second screenshot looks especially nice. I noticed in the first shot that the background looks a lot like the old RCT3 background. English countryside, rolling hills.
