Offering breathtaking views of the forest, Go Ape is a great way to get outdoors and enjoy the beauty of Kansas City’s largest green space.  The Treetop Adventure is a 2-3-hour high-ropes experience, where guests take on suspended obstacles, traverse the treetops on cables, enjoy one of the most epic Tarzan swings ever and zip line around the course. Way more than your average canopy tour, our aerial treetop adventure is going to deliver a sense of wonder and bragging rights.

WWI Museum Tour- The National WWI Museum and Memorial is America’s only museum dedicated to sharing the stories of the Great War through the eyes of those who lived it.  Interactive displays, thought-provoking films and eyewitness testimonies help guide visitors through one of the largest collections of WWI artifacts in the world.  From the first shots fired in 1914 to the last attempts at peace in 1919, this award-winning museum offers a global perspective of “The War to End All Wars,” and includes firsthand accounts from the battlefield and home front alike.  Enjoy a guided tour of the museum and Liberty Memorial Tower
