Event Recap

Jungle Safari

As guests entered the jungle area, they immediately saw three huge hot-air balloons amidst a tree canopy, thick vines, and forest foliage. The hot-air balloons were assembled of various sizes of rings made using the alternate duplet pack technique, for clean lines. 

A balloon Jeep carried a crew of balloon passengers along a path to view families of giraffes and elephants ranging in size from 4-feet to 10-feet tall. The complex design featured an adult giraffe leaning over to take a star from a baby giraffe, which created balance issues that were solved by the experienced team, to keep the giant giraffe from tipping over!

And of course, monkeys are everywhere!


I have seen grown men moved to tears from the pure joy and awe of this amazing production... it has been a privilege to be a part of it.
