CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - One of the largest cranes in Ohio was needed to lift a new dome structure that is part of The RainForest exhibit at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo.

The exhibit’s new roof weighs 35 tons and is nearly 40 feet tall.

According to zoo officials, the previous dome was in place for nearly 30 years and was recognizable to guests as they approached the park’s main entrance.

The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is open daily from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
