ClimbZone Indoor Climbing

ClimbZone offers a fascinating indoor climbing experience for the entire family. A special auto-belay system allows climbers to take control of their descent and return safely to the ground without relying on another person. Therefore both parents and children of all ages can enjoy climbing in safety, at the same time pushing themselves to their personal limits.

All climbing walls are individually themed and are truly a work of art. Climbers can climb the Eiffel Tower or the Abraham Lincoln Memorial, take a trek across a state map of the United States, climb to the top of Jack’s giant beanstalk, rise to the top of the Empire State Building (with King Kong perched on top), or push their way up through Tetris blocks.

    A fun kid-themed climbing gym that could use a tweak or two

    Reviewed 09 December 2016

    For the most part, this is a great place for kids who like to climb, or just want to try. There are only a few typical climbing walls familiar to climbing gym regulars (with the small, rough, rock-like holds). Most of the walls are brightly-painted with imaginative themes, from King Kong on the Empire State Building to the Eiffel Tower to story book scenes. The paint is one of the downsides, as it is glossy and slippery, particularly when the climber sweats a little (this could be most problematic on a hot day). The hand and foot holds are mostly large, helping the kids (and adult climbers) hold on, but a rougher surface on top of the holds would be a good idea. They have a very clever (spring-loaded?) belaying system installed that eliminates the need for an active belay (with a person controlling the rope to catch the climber) and assures a safe and slow descent in case of a fall. Parents still need to keep a close eye on kids just to be certain that they are properly secured. They might even want to climb alongside their kids and help them find hand and foot holds or just offer encouragement. My only other criticism, and as a longtime climber I think it's an important one, is that the harnesses need to be sized to fit the climber. One size fits all is not a good way to go with climbing safety equipment. Manufacturers make kid-sized harnesses for a reason and it's surprising that a place intended primarily for kids doesn't provide a variety of sizes like other climbing gyms do. My son's gear was up in his face no matter how tightly we adjusted the harness. He wasn't going to fall out, but he could easily have been bruised or scratched by getting hit in the face or forehead by the carabiner or other metal parts.This is a personal opinion of a KiddieMundo user.

    Good family activity

    Reviewed 27 November 2016

    We visited this place today and we loved it (my husband climbed as well). Our kids had so much fun climbing on various walls which are really beautiful and require different climbing strategies. The great thing about this place is that upon arrival, in a training zone, kids learn how to hook themselves up to the ropes and they can independently switch from a wall to wall. It's an excellent physical activity for the entire family. During the weekends I would recommend visiting ClimbZone in the morning as it gets more crowded as the time goes by.This is a personal opinion of a KiddieMundo user.
