Booking Information

  • Pre-booking of your Clip ‘n Climb session is highly recommended as our sessions fill up quickly. You can call in on the spur of the moment but there is no guarantee that we will have spaces available.
  • For large party reservations or exclusive climbing bookings please email or call us … Click here for contact details.
  • If one parent or guardian is bringing multiple children, some of whom are not their own, that adult is responsible for the whole group.
  • Loose fitting clothes are recommended
  • Only closed toe shoes are allowed. For safety reasons, we cannot allow sandals, flip flops or rock shoes into the Clip ‘n Climb Arena.
  • Please keep jewellery to a minimum. We do have the facility to safely store jewellery if required.
  • Please arrive 20 minutes before the start of your session.
  • The session that you have booked for will start on time. If you arrive late for your session, this will reduce the amount of time that you will be able to spend in the Clip n Climb arena. Arriving after the end of the safety briefing means your climb time will be reduced or cancelled completely.
