The first CLIP 'N CLIMB center in Scotland opened this week
Newest attraction at Edinburgh International Climbing Arena opened on Friday, March 23rd.A new ‘action attraction’, first pioneered in New Zealand, is set to launch at Edinburgh’s International Climbing Arena (EICA): Ratho on Good Friday (25 March 2016).
Suitable for anyone from 4 to 84 years and beyond, CLIP 'N CLIMB, is being opened by Edinburgh Leisure. Offering a fun and accessible climbing experience presenting participants with a selection of themed challenges on brightly coloured walls, it is the first one in Scotland.
Remko Plooij, Director of Operations at Edinburgh Leisure said: “The beauty of CLIP 'N CLIMB is that unlike traditional climbing no previous experience or training is required, apart from our statutory 10 minute briefing at the start of each hour’s session. There’s also not the start-up costs associated with traditional rock climbing.
“It offers the challenge of climbing in a safe, accessible environment and it really does appeal to everyone from 4 to 84 years and beyond – something the whole family can participate in. The introduction of CLIP 'N CLIMB at Ratho compliments all the other activities we have on offer: soft play, climbing in the amazing arena, a fantastic gym and let’s not forget the cafe and guarantees a great day out for the whole family.”
