Climbing Tower

Feeling Brave?

Scale our 28ft (8.4m) Climbing Tower and see if you have what it takes to reach the top! The Tower has 4 different faces available to climb, all of varying degrees of difficulty. All participants are kitted out with a climbing harness and receive a safety briefing from one of our trained members of staff.

The Climbing Tower features an automatic belay system and has a built-in timer to unleash everyone's competitive streak in a race to the top!

Each climber gets a minimum of 3 minutes to climb and the opportunity to try 2 different walls of varying difficulties. Height and weight restrictions apply, see below for our full set of Climbing Tower Rules:
