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.

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!)

It was nice not to feel rushed through each site. Our questions/concerns were answered promptly. Our guide was a great teacher but made it fun!
Rated 5 Bananas Connie - Treetop Adventure, Treetop Junior, on 28 October 2014
We had given our kids and grandkids gift certificates for Go Ape last year for Christmas. We thought it would be a fun experience for all of them to do together. They loved it except for our youngest grandson. He decided maybe he wasn't ready for flying through the trees. Our money was graciously refunded. They're already talking about doing it again sometime. It was a beautiful day for the adventure!!

Go Ape was given to me as a late birthday present and I must say, it was the best present I have ever received! Even though you high off the ground it doesn't feel like you are. It's not scary at all, and I felt extremely safe the whole time. My favorite part was the Tarzan swing and the zip-lines. Nothing compares to soring through the air like that! I especially liked the rope bridges that lifted ever-so-slight up and down when the wind blew threw the trees. It felt like I was floating on the gentle waves of the ocean. I would sagest that everyone experience this exiting tree-top adventure!
