Go Ape Treetop Adventure Course at Eagle Creek Park

On May 26th the Naptown Buzz Crew had the privilege of checking out the new Go Ape Treetop Adventure Course at Eagle Creek Park.

While many may be thinking this is just another zipline course, that is not the case with Go Ape.  This course is more of a five part obstacle course, IN THE TREE TOPS,  made up of rope ladders and dozens of obstacle crossings, each ending with a zip line ride.  You can watch the video to see for yourself what we’re talking about.

Bottom line, this can be a little difficult, especially if you’re a little out of shape, but it is very rewarding and a lot of fun.

The cost is currently $55 per person (18+) and $35 for children (10-17) and should take you 2-3 hours depending how fast your group can make it around the obstacles.

Note: there is a $5 parking fee to enter the park.
