Family Clip 'n Climb Sessions
Thrilling fun for the family! Clip 'n Climb is back as a bookable family session. A great adventure for children aged 8+ and adults is waiting at Clip 'n Climb, inside Europe's biggest climbing arena.
Clip ‘n Climb will challenge your senses as well as your stamina with different shapes, vibrant colours and variety of textures.
No two challenges are alike. Each of our climbing elements offer unique and extraordinary experiences – it’s impossible to be bored and for those looking for continuous improvement, each challenge offers different levels of difficulty to push you even harder!
Challenge yourself or your family with 15 climbing elements providing a range of features and levels suitable for children and adults. If you lose your balance, the auto-belay gently lowers you and you can climb again unless it’s the end of your session.
Don't worry if you've never climbed before, it's suitable for beginners.
We will be running 5 sessions every Saturday and Sunday each week, with sessions bookable 8 days in advance.
