It’s already proved massively popular at Gateshead leisure centre and next week Clip ‘n Climb will open at intu Metrocentre.
Clip ‘n Climb offers an all-weather space where adults and kids can enjoy some healthy, action-packed fun, featuring 26 individual climbing wall challenges of varying design and difficulty, testing agility and courage in different ways.
There are also three special attractions – Stairway to Heaven, 10 metre Drop Slide and Timed Wall.
If that’s not enough there’s an augmented climbing wall that features projected graphics combined with motion tracking to create interactive games that can be played individually or together!
Clip ‘n Climb, which will open on Monday, July 15, will capitalise on the centre’s 20 million annual footfall and the growing appeal of indoor climbing walls, which are recording visitor growth of 15-20% a year according to the Association of British Climbing Walls.
The new attractions will add to intu Metrocentre’s leisure offer by providing more activities to entertain customers and create an even bigger draw for people looking for a day out destination.
Kate Grant, regional managing director at intu, said: “Clip ‘n Climb will join intu Metrocentre’s popular line-up of aspirational brands and high street names and drive up the centre’s appeal as a day out retail and leisure destination, which is all part of our strategy to create winning destinations in sought after locations.
“We know it is going to thrive here and the attraction will also create a real sense of theatre for our customers due to its location in the mall itself.”
Philip Millward, commercial director at Namco, said: “intu Metrocentre’s high footfall, wide range of top-performing retail brands and complementary leisure offer makes it the perfect location to launch the latest Clip ‘n Climb.
