The adventure begins at the Bemis Woods Forest Preserves in Western Springs. This is more than just a canopy tour, it’s made to get your adrenaline going and your pulse pounding and drawing out that inner Tarzan or Jane in you. Go Ape! Has 39 exciting crossings, a Tarzan swing and 5 zip lines divided between two different experiences.
The “Treetop Journey” is designed to be the perfect introduction to a high-ropes course experience. This one hour adventure has 20 obstacles and 2 zip lines and is a great course to build a love of outdoor physical activity.
The “Treetop Adventure” is more challenging. The 2-3 hour course is designed to keep you “challenged, present and living in the moment.” This high-ropes course includes 3 zip lines, suspended obstacles and swings.
These adventures do require a degree of physical fitness, but if you can climb a rope ladder you should be able to enjoy this. There is a minimum age of 10 years old and one adult for every 2 children. Safety equipment is provided and “You will receive a comprehensive 30-minute safety briefing where you are trained on how to use the equipment and course etiquette.” Instructors are always close by if you need help or encouragement.
Both the “Treetop Journey” and “Treetop Adventure” are self-paced so you never have to worry about falling behind just enjoy the journey.
