Where are we going today?
Want to hear something really cool about Go Ape Creve Coeur Park? Well, it happens to be the first and ONLY treetop adventure course in the entire state of Missouri - how cool is that!
So if you want to channel Tarzan, or enjoy a birds eye view of the Creve Coeur park, then you know where to head!
Treetop adventure courses are great fun for those active kids and family, because it's 2-3 hours of challenging obstacles, bridges, ropes and of course, zip lines! The course has 5 individual sections, and each section takes you higher and higher into the forest canopy. You know what else is really fun? The whole course ends with a super fun zip line! In fact, there are 5 ziplines across the entire course!
To get to that finish though, the challenges await with numerous rope ladders, and 39 exciting crossings that include the Flying Carpet and Spider's Web! Ready to be King of the Jungle on one of the 2 Tarzan swings? Get that call ready!
When you arrive, you will be given a 30 minute safety and training briefing, then kitted up with all your harnesses and pulleys, so you know you will be safe and ready to take tot he course. The instructors are always on hand for support and assistance, so it's a great chance for kids new to canopy rope courses to give it a go.
Go Ape Creve Coeur Park is always located within one of the most visited parks in St. Louis County, with 320 acres of playgrounds, boating areas, fishing and nature trails to explore once your treetop adventure has finished!
So shut those computers down, and turn off the TV, because it's time to Go Ape!

Went with my 8-year old girl and she had a blast! Ran around doing the 2 courses as much as she could (we were given a 1.5 hour time slot). I couldn't keep up, gave up after 2 round of each course. It was a pretty warm day and we were drenched in sweat, but they do provide water. Staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, really good with the kids. Definitely recommend it!

Loved it. I felt that it was challenging, mentally and physically, so when finishing it felt like a victory. Staff was friendly, encouraging and helpful.

Great time with the kids (10 & 7 years old). Highly recommended.
Go Ape! Was absolutely thrilling. It was one of the most exhilarating experiences I have had. Hope to come back soon. Staff was friendly and helpful. Even though I felt as though I was going fast, the course took me about two hours to complete. It will challenge your body, but that's just part of the fun!! Check it out!

I got to go on the adults course and then the Jr course with my kids. Both were extremely fun and the staff was great with alot of patience dealing with my fear of heights.
But there is also the Junior Treetop Course and my 5yr old and 8yr old were able to complete and had a blast! We actually just finished the #Halloweenadventures at night that they started this year. So glad we found this place! Make sure to check out my blog or Youtube Channel for the videos!
