Hijotee's Huge Zoo is the fifth major theme park created by Hijotee using the RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 video game for his main annual theme park gaming series and is the park released for 2015. This theme park is the biggest park ever built in terms of land size (note that Dinotopia is the biggest in terms of ride count) and is also the only park to feature a complete surrounding area where people come from to get into the park. In this surrounding area, a segment of the city where the park is located is visible, which includes a full sized parking lot complex, several roads leading up to the theme park with a complete drop-off area, bus loading areas, taxiways, entrance plaza, and a hotel featuring a mini-water park, therefore making this theme park into a full sized resort. The park mostly consists of multiple animal enclosures placed all over the park's land with only a limited amount of roller coasters placed in the outer areas of the park. However, the park still features 29 flat rides which is almost as much as Dinotopia. Since the theme park is so massive in land size, multiple park entrances are available all over the park with a main transport serving people from one entrance to another, and even to the nearby hotel. The park also has a few food courts (more than any other park), a huge river with water rides, various tracked rides that take people inside the enclosures, and also features the largest staff of any park (including over 100 zookeepers). The animal enclosures are split into four categories: the standard fenced enclosures, the large themed enclosures with animal ecosystems, the mini-zoo area, and the combined animal safaris. All of the animal enclosures only feature one type of animal except for the safaris that feature multiple species into one single giant area. The most popular attraction in the park is not a roller coaster, but rather a miniature railroad that takes peeps inside the animal safaris. A rarity at the time, Hijotee was finally able to complete this theme park fully in schedule by starting construction at the beginning of the release year and finishing before the summer (this was later done again in 2017 and is planned to be done for all future theme parks). Construction of the park started on January 14, 2015 with a small teaser and went well ahead into the late spring. On May 22, 2015 all the roller coaster POVs were released with the final cinematic video being released on June 12, 2015. Below is a list of all the videos released for this park and the neighboring city area in 2015; all grouped by video type and ordered by release date.
