Eagle Creek Park – Indianapolis, Indiana
Go Ape’s first treetop adventure course (zip lines, obstacles and more!) in the Midwest, is set within one of the largest municipal parks in the entire USA, Eagle Creek Park in Indianapolis, Indiana. With over 3,900 acres of land and almost 1,400 acres of water, Eagle Creek is big, bold and beautiful. The course is surrounded by endless amounts of activities such as sailing and boat rentals, 22 miles of hiking trails, 2 nature centers, 2 retreat centers, a fitness course, TONS of picnic areas and shelters, a swimming beach, state nature preserves, cross-country skiing paths, waterfowl sanctuary and even a shooting range. Equally amazing is that all of these park activities and the Go Ape course are just minutes from downtown Indy!
With views of Eagle Creek Reservoir, the Go Ape treetop adventure course is going to allow you to experience Eagle Creek like never before! Made up of numerous rope ladders, 39 crossings to include the Log Balance, Flying Carpet and Tic Tac Toe, 2 tarzan swings and 5 zip lines. There are 5 individual sections within the course, each section taking you higher into the forest canopy and finishing with a zip line more exciting than the previous one! If you thought the Super Bowl zip line was impressive, you haven’t seen anything yet.
Please note: There is a shared parking lot available between Go Ape and the Earth Discovery Center. There is also parking available at the Marina and Peace Learning Center. Parking Fee: $3 for bikers/hikers; $5 for Marion County Residents; $6 for non residents; $15 per bus
