CLYMB™ Abu Dhabi is one of the great attractions to be found among the hive of activity on Yas Island. This thrilling climbing and skydiving extravaganza promises a memorable experience full of amazing walls to scale plus the adrenalin rush of a record-breaking skydiving tunnel.
While there are some very challenging climbs here, this is a family-friendly attraction with plenty for beginners to get their teeth into too – even a three-year-old can join in the fun.
Those wanting a real challenge can push their limits on The Summyt™, while young ones can learn from instructors and embrace their first ascent.
Book ahead to arrange your visit to this exhilarating and unforgettable experience.
Fun-loving families, thrill seekers of all ages, wannabe skydivers and climbers and those seeking one of Abu Dhabi’s most exciting adrenaline rushes.
Being able to tackle two record-breaking challenges – the tallest indoor artificial climbing wall and the widest indoor skydiving wind tunnel.
This skydiving chamber is the world’s tallest, with a drop of 104 feet (32 metres) and a width of 32 feet (10 metres) making it twice the size of most standard chambers.
Whether you’re a first-timer or a veteran, you’ll run through safety procedures with your flight instructor before donning your equipment and preparing to fly. A total of 16 powerful fans keep you aloft, giving you time to flex your flying skills and learn new techniques.
The Summyt™ is the ultimate challenge and a great test for even the most experienced of climbers. This is 138 feet (43 metres) high, making it the world’s tallest indoor climbing wall (as well as the first indoor multi-pitch wall). There are 13 different routes to the top, meaning climbers will find new challenges every time they visit. It’s also a great way to burn plenty of calories too.
CLYMB™ is keen to help everyone to find their own level and to offer a route for progression. The Boulder is perfect for beginners, a wide-but-short climb that leads on to ‘The Beginner’, a slightly more challenging 18-foot (six metre) ascent.
‘The Intermediate’ is a 33 foot (10 metre) climb and ‘The Advanced’ takes you up to 72 feet (22 metres). After that lies The Summyt™ - the ultimate test to aim for.
One of the things that makes CLYMB™ such a great family attraction is that it even allows toddlers to have a go at skydiving and climbing. The skydiving flight chamber allows children as young as three to participate, while the lower limit for climbing is four years old.
There are suits and equipment specially tailored for the little ones, while parents can accompany their children or, if not flying or climbing themselves, can watch from nearby.
CLYMB™ has a dedicated ladies night every Wednesday from 5.30pm to 9.00pm. It’s the perfect opportunity for groups of female friends or colleagues to experience the thrills and excitement of the CLYMB™ experience with all-female staff and complete privacy.
Different discount packages are available, covering everything from taster sessions to combos. Male children under eight years of age are able to accompany their mums to these sessions too.
