Ruka Safari and Flying Tigers were both installed and opened in early April 2017 in what used to be the west end of the Putter Around The Park miniature golf course.

The mural on the back of the neighboring building with its artistic depictions of wildlife was painted by Benjamin Weimeyer before the park opened that year. The process is shown in the video below.
