No, the hippos hadn’t gone soft. There were construction challenges that required a custom stretch tent rental.
Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is one of the most scenic zoos in the world. It is situated at 7000ft on the lower slope of Cheyenne Mountain, above the Broadmoor Hotel. Though stunning, the hillside location and expansive soil make for a challenging building environment. The new hippo pools had settled and cracked. The pools had to be coated with a rubberized sealer that cured at 50deg F – not so simple in February. So, the Zoo contacted Tentrix for a custom stretch tent rental.
