Ropes Challenge Course

**Like many other businesses, we have faced staffing issues.  Because safety is our #1 goal, we will never open the Ropes Challenge Course without the appropriate number of operators.  We encourage you to call ahead (812-235-5548) before your arrival to confirm its open.  We apologize for any inconvenience.

The Ropes Challenge Course has an add-on ticket price of $7 for non-members and $3 for members; Museum admission is required to purchase Course tickets.

Members of the Terre Haute Children's Museum can also upgrade their membership to include a daily Ropes Course ticket for each eligible person on the membership (+ Ropes). Current members of the Museum can purchase the + Ropes  upgrade for $50. Non members can purchase a basic family membership for $125 or an upgraded Family + Ropes membership for $175.

Any Ropes Challenge Course ticket - whether it be a membership pass or a day pass -- will have unlimited rides for that day. It will be much like a roller coaster; once your time is up, you can get back in line.
