FINALLY! Something that requires us to upgrade a ton with the currency we have been collecting since Act II started. You have been collecting and saving the currency...right? Cause you’re gonna need it!
In any case, yes or no, The Great Plains is a place and a placeholder that allows you to add animals, and upgrades to make it even “Plain-ier”…even if you are almost out of room in your Zoo Zone.
It pretty much is just the start of something bigger…
Like the real plains…which can go on and on forever. Like this event.
Let’s take a look at the details.
First of all…let’s be clear. These are NOT the “Great Plains” that were settled by pioneer folk in the Good Ol’ U S of A. Nope. These are the kinda plains that you’ll find in Africa, and are full of the kind of animals that you only find in a zoo here. But, if you are like me, you may be out of land to place your plains in the Zoo Bonus Area, and may have to locate your plains elsewhere. And there is nothing plain about that kinda brain damage.
However…its all good fun…with a ton of animals and expansions to follow. So…there is NOTHING plan at all about these plains. In fact…they’re kinda Great!

After part 1 is complete there are 4 more parts (to reach Big Ol’ Watering Hole Pt. 5) that will appear in sequence (without dialogue) to upgrade Great Plains.
See the upgrade post for details about Great Plains upgrades.
So…yes,,,just like the enclosures before this, the Great Plains start small and can be made Greater and Plain-ier at your whim.
There a ton of upgrades and animals…so it really IS GREAT to have these Plains!
NEXT UP…another Free Land Tile (that you can’t use near your Zoo Zone) and then the FINAL PRIZE… T-REX!!!
