To increase attendance and revenue, several zoos have partnered with RCI to design, manufacture and install hands-on aerial ropes, zip line courses, climbing walls and other adventure attractions.

Our entertainment products have helped zoos enjoy quick returns on investments and impressive attendance spikes after installation.

Benefits of Working with RCI to Install Adventure Attractions at Your Zoo

Partnering with RCI to install entertainment attractions can turn your zoo into a must-visit destination. Some of the benefits of working with RCI to install entertainment attractions include:

Return on Investment

Many of our zoo partners have recouped their investment very quickly.

“The zoo’s (full) investment was paid for within the first year,” said Rob Thielemann, Guest Services Manager at Zoo Atlanta.


With unique animals, train rides, splash pads and playgrounds – zoos are already entertainment powerhouses. The addition of self-guided aerial attractions is another layer of entertainment that will transform your zoo into a destination for people to visit, whether they live down the street or across the state.


Safety is a top priority at RCI. We hire only the most experienced installers and inspector trainers who take the extra time to show zoo staff how the equipment works and how to conduct daily inspections. The staff at RCI is always available to answer any questions you might have, no matter if the product was installed last week or last year. RCI will guide your zoo throughout the entire process and make product and configuration recommendations.


RCI’s entertainment courses can be modified to offer new features for customers. This will keep the products fresh and give customers something new to discover.

Self-Guided Products

Because RCI’s products are self-guided, there is little demand to hire additional zoo staff after the installation of the products is complete.

Experience and Customer Service

Founded in 1989, RCI has installed entertainment attractions in 33 countries. Specifically, RCI has designed and installed attractions at zoos across the United States and in the United Kingdom.

When you partner with RCI, you can rest assured that your zoo is receiving only industry-leading equipment and hardware, as well as a lifetime of customer support and maintenance.
