The building is on two levels with a viewing platform at the upper level to provide access for visitors at  canopy level to view the Orang-utans at their natural level.

The facility is designed as a rainforest incorporating individual displays and small enclosures which contain other inhabitants of the  rainforest such as the mangrove snake, flying lizards, marbled    praying mantis and the Jungle nymph all of which require their own    controlled environment.

The Realm of the Red Ape was opened to the public in June 2007.
