22 Awesome Things #14: The Orange Monster

February 2015 | Related Categories: 22 Awesome Things | Construction | Videos | What's New

What’s large and twisted and orange all over? Only the most awesomely fun play structure ever created: The Orange Monster. 22 Awesome Things- Orange Monster

Not your typical play structure, The Orange Monster is approximately ¾ acres – almost as long as a football field – with yard-upon-yard of bright orange steel piping, covered with braided rope netting. As if you needed more fun in one spot, there are six slides and six swings too.

The Orange Monster is custom built, using standard components for a one-of-a-kind play experience.  And the fun doesn’t have to stop when the sun goes down. LED lights were turned upside down and integrated into The Orange Monster for evening play. Stand back and the Monster looks like it’s floating – the effect of lights shining lights against black support posts.

The Orange Monster is a destination to visit and explore. At first glance, it resembles a large urban art piece. But get closer and it functions as an innovative play structure for both kids and adults.

Yes, adults are invited to get in on the action! As the pipe sculpture and netting twists and turns, it creates an exercise course of climbing challenges that begin at grade and rise to over nine feet in height.

You don’t get such an awesome place to play without talking to the experts: kids. Our team tapped into the minds of children – 30 children to be exact – to shape the innovative design. The children’s ideas and suggestions were translated into buildable elements by the design team of landscape architects, planners, and engineers.

The Orange Monster had to be constructed and painted on-site. No small task, this massive construction job took approximately three months to complete. Watch for yourself in our Making-of-The-Orange-Monster video that shows it’s installation at The Eastmark Great Park.
