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 views of Eagle Creek Reservoir, the Go Ape Treetop Adventure course is going to allow you to experience Eagle Creek like never before!  More than just a canopy tour, the course is 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!)

Rated 5 Bananas Eric - Treetop Adventure, on 31 August 2015
This was my first experience with Go Ape and it was fantastic. The staff was extremely friendly and informative. This would be an excellent activity to participate in with friends, family, and even co-workers as a way to enjoy some time out of the office. Appropriate for all skill levels. The course allowed for beginners and more adventurous types.

This was AMAZING!! Worth every penny. My husband and I went for our anniversary and loved it. We encouraged each other through out the course and also had so many laughs. The instructors are so amazing as well. They were every where and was willing to help and encourage you when needed. Ready to go back!!! It's a completely sane thing to do!!!!! Loved it!!!!

It was a great experience! The instructor was very patient and helpful. We are all a little afraid of heights but agreed it was one of the highlights of our summer! We will definitely go ape again in the future!
Rated 5 Bananas Michele - Treetop Adventure, on 11 August 2015
Awesome experience. My husband and I (64 and 54) took our nephew and friend (age 12) for his birthday. I heard no less then 15 times during the adventure--this is the best present ever, this is the best present ever!! We loved it. The safety factor was a concern of mine before arriving, and upon the instructional demonstration and the checkpoints and briefing; my concerns were gone. We had a blast and it was a wonderful day! We can't wait to come back! The course was excellent and well designed for even beginners and novices like us. However, the moderate to challenging stations were achievable and gave all of us a great sense of accomplishment and fun!!
