My son had a great week climbing and generally having fun out and about. The instructors were great and helped the group mix well together. He's keen to return next year already!

I can't rate this highly enough. My 6 year old loved this so much that I am about to take the 4 year old as well. Very safe, clear instruction and good monitoring. Plenty of routes and interest. 1 hour booking slots. Highly recommended.

We regularly take our 2 year old grandson to the EICA where he loves Scrambles soft play. The whole complex is amazing with what look like world class climbing facilities. I'm no climbing expert so cannot comment more than that. There are excellent cafe facilities...More
