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

Take a look at what some of our tribe have said about their time in the forest. It's always good to hear it straight from the Gorilla's mouth (...and we're proud to say it’s totally unedited!)

Rated 5 Bananas Mark - Treetop Adventure, on 20 October 2014
My family loved the zip lining experience. The thrill of traveling in the air through the woods was absolutely wonderful.
Rated 5 Bananas Shari - Treetop Adventure, on 20 October 2014
I decided that this would be a great birthday gift for my son-in-law,Chris; so of course my daughter Kayleigh (his wife) and I had to tag along, too, right?? Awesome experience! Lots of fun! Fears conquered. Beautiful Autumn Day. Our instructor was energetic and very safety conscious. GO APE EAGLE CREEK!!
Rated 5 Bananas Barbara - Treetop Adventure, on 20 October 2014
I went from feeling unsure, even a bit concerned about the decision to do this, at the beginning to feeling confident by about 1/3 of the way through. Then was hooting and hollaring all the rest of the way! Had an absolute ball! I can't believe a course that is this adventurous can be this safe for the normal, everyday participant! I really liked the introduction and the crash course in how to keep myself safe. Knowing that my safety was in my control gave me a real boost in my confidence in myself! Thanks! I will be back, for sure!
Rated 5 Bananas Ward - Treetop Adventure, on 20 October 2014
Took my niece for her 12th birthday and we both had a blast. Overall it looked clean and safe, all instructors were very nice and friendly. Maybe more zip lines in the future.
