If you have active kids then this is a great place to go. We spent 2 hours there and they had a ball. For Dad it was great too, just fitness levels can impeded the time spent. Wish there was a short visit price rather a daily only.

My children, aged 10 and 12 years, have been climbing at City Rock for the past 5 years and are excited to visit each time. We spend many hours there while they climb and explore their inner strengths and weaknesses. I would recommend it to anyone. Great value for money as well. The instructors are helpful and friendly and really... More

My wife, her brother and I found out about this activity off a search on TripAdvisor when we were already in Cape Town. We had our 8 month daughter with us which made for its own fun as she screamed ecstatically a lot more than the rest of us! About 10 minutes drive from the city centre. We called a... More

My son and I went in the winter school holidays and had a ball racing each other up the various climbing walls, and trying out the more technical - some seemingly impossible climbs. - Suits all ages, and is very safe.

My husband and I started rock climbing at CityRock, and I must say it is the most fun exercise I have had in a very long time. You are busy for 2 - 3 hours without even noticing it. We did the introduction course on a Wednesday (they do it on Mondays and Wednesdays 18:00-20:00) after which you have the... More
