If you’ve ever tried rock climbing (and even if you haven’t), chances are you’ll LOVE Clip ‘n Climb. For starters, there are no age restrictions — perfect for little monkeys!There are 8 clip 'n climb franchises in New Zealand, from Auckland to Invercargill.
It’s designed for both adults and kids alike with loads of colourful climbing challenges of varying difficulty. What that means mums and dads, is you get to join in the fun! Climbing is good for kids on so many levels — from physical, to therapeutic and confidence-building so we scooted off to the newest Clip 'n Climb franchise, in the South Island city of Dunedin. Here is the low-down...
The colourful room instantly differenciates itself from the usual bland climbing centres that appear very serious and do all they can to replicate an outdoor rock face environment
There are so many walls to climb – each decked out in different colours and themes with different levels of difficulty so its challenging for everyone.
There’s the Morse Code with flashing lights, the Dry Ice wall where you need ice picks, and the Spaghetti Junction with dangling ropes for extra difficulty. It’s a full sensory experience and keeps the fun stakes high. We love that it’s an activity that parents can join in with kids and it’s a big plus that there is no age minimum (just weight; kids must be 10kg or above).
