Fun and cheap

My nine year old had fun climbing the tower. It's good for about 15 minutes of fun. There are varying difficulty levels to match your ability and experience.

We took the 2nd easiest climb and went all the way to the top. Felt good after ringing the bell since it was my 1st rock climb and almost gave up, but the attendant was very encouraging and assuring to help me made it to the top!

Amanda was a great assistance helping us build the confidence needed when facing the wall that LOOKS easy to climb. We had a good time climbing up the different skill level sides and my girl friend totally showed me how great she is climbing the wall and she had never climbed before. Thanks so much Amanda for the laughs.

This was one of the places that offered a freebie on your birthday. But even if you have to pay - it's only $5.

The staff was very professional, helmet and harness were in great condition. I didn't see a sign explaining the colors on the climbing wall. We asked - we decided what color area to try, and scabbled up to the top -

My kids enjoyed the rock climbing experience. The guide helping them was very nice and told them tricks on how to climb up. There were a lot of sections from beginners to expert.. so everyone was able to climb without waiting long at all!
