Go Ape Treetop Junior Chicago, located at Bemis Woods in Western Springs, opened this summer and is a great opportunity for your kids to experience conquering obstacles in the trees and soaring down a zip line! I’m excited to announce that Go Ape has offered four free Treetop Junior tickets along with four t-shirts (two adults and two kids shirts) to give away to one lucky Kidlist reader.
I have included the summary info for quick reference and the giveaway form is at the end. If you have not been to the Treetop Junior course or Treetop Adventure course, keep reading! There are links to our more detailed reviews below as well.
Age and Height Guidelines
Treetop Junior is for children 6-12 years old and children under 6 need to be over 39 inches tall.
There are three loops that constitute the Treetop Junior course (after completing the practice loop), which end with the same zip line. The first loop is the easiest, with each loop building upon the last and ending with a zip line.
I was really happy with the safety and interaction with the kids. We were each fitted with a harness and checked in the beginning, checked a second time before the practice loop, and continued to be checked before entering each loop.
Children and adults of all ages are $28 for one hour. You can do as many loops as you would like in the hour. Doing the practice section plus the three loops took us about 45 minutes, then we were able to repeat another two loops within our time slot. If you need to leave the area to take your kids to the bathroom, no problem. They will subtract your time away, so you don’t lose the full hour of your adventure.

Where is Go Ape?
Since my initial post, some have asked for directions. Here is the official address from Google Maps: 1100 Ogden Ave, Western Springs, IL 60558. The entrance to Go Ape is off Ogden Avenue, between 294 and Wolf Road. Turn into the driveway next to the red forest preserve sign, head straight, and you will soon see the structures and Go Ape staff on your right.
