  • Slides designed to look like a Kodak film strip, flower petals and tree stumps
  • Anthills and plant root mazes that guests could explore and hide in
  • A giant spider web which guests could climb
  • A dog nose (modeled after Quirk from the movie) which “sneezed” mist onto guests
  • A giant 52 ft leaking water hose
  • “Giant” objects such cheerios, bumblebees, ants and a Play-Doh tub
