Do you remember when I told you all about our big adventure at the Go Ape course at Eagle Creek? You know, the tree top adventure with high ropes courses, crazy bridge crossings and ziplines? So many of you were excited about the adventure but not exactly pleased with the price tag. Some of you believed me when I said that is was worth.every.penny. If you aren’t convinced yet, go try out the Butler University High Ropes Course for FREE!
Everyone 12 and older is welcome to come and be a part of the high ropes adventure. If you are 18 or under, you need to participate WITH a parent or guardian. It’s a challenge, it’s a thrill, it’s an adventure! It’s 38 feet above the ground.
The High Ropes Course is across the canal from the Holcomb Gardens on the Butler University Campus (Illinois St & 49th St). Trained facilitators will train you and assist you in this challenge. Wondering what to wear and what to bring? Check out my Go Ape info for suggestions.
