My boys and I recently spent an afternoon ziplining through Edge Adventures at Koteewi in Noblesville. It was an exhilarating way to spend the afternoon, flying through the trees. We all left the park feeling braver and stronger than we had in a while.
If you’re thinking of trying ziplining or braving an aerial obstacle course, here are a few parks in the Indianapolis area to check out.
Edge Adventures has two locations: one in Noblesville and one in South Bend. Both offer three-hour or all-day passes to their adventure parks. Their adventure park is described as “essentially a series of obstacle courses in the trees.” Each park offers multiple courses which increase in complexity. Three-hour passes cost $44.95 for children ages 7-15, and $49.95 for adults 16+. All day passes cost $69. Group discounts are available.
Hours: Saturday, Sunday, Monday from 10 am-4 pm
