The ecological branded theme park relies on discovery, mystery and interactive participation by visitors. Based on the major rain forests of the world (Amazon, Congo, Hainan, Panda, Australia and Southeast Asia), a series of outdoor adventures, retail village and water park establish a truly immersive sense of place. Rides and trails allow guests to explore the various environments via safari trucks or authentic river canoes. Live animal forest paddocks were incorporated into the design so that guests could view pandas in their natural habitat. One of the more spectacular elements was the creation of an iconic waterfall castle providing venues for live performances in a number of open-air theaters as well as gondola access to the nearby mountaintop where the team created a oneof-a kind Phoenix inspired tower.
As part of the design process, EDSA (Rainforest Kingdome) developed storylines for each zone based on its respective history, flora and fauna which guided the design of the interactive elements within.
