I LOVE Laumeier. We've done our share of shoots there.

And they have this cool place that looks very Japanese with a bunch of wooden structures: http://www.cosplay.com/photo/2414564/
Also, Creve Couer Park up north of St. Louis for anyone who needs a jungle. The place is crawling with huge vines that you can climb way up into the trees. It looks very much like Tselinoyarsk, the "jungle" in southern Russia that was created for Metal Gear Solid 3. We're doing our second MGS shoot there this weekend. Love that place.
Here are some pictures taken there: http://www.cosplay.com/photo/2683760/
