“Great experience - excellent instruction - our 3 children loved it!”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

We visited the climbing wall on Sunday morning - only intending to get a feel for it but our 3 children (7, 7, 9) ended up doing the Crazy Climb session and loved it. Great variety of climbs combined with a patient very helpful instructor made for a very good.mornings activities. Although not cheap we left feeling it had been excellent value for money. We will be back!

“Thrill and Brill Kendal Climbing Centre”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

My 12 year old son is afraid of the height but he really enjoyed the time in the centre. We are trying to fight this tear and build up his confidence. It worked from the very beginning. He tried Crazy Climb and I first thought he would ask to leave after 5 minutes but to my surprise he tried almost all the walls and he found 4 that he really liked.Keep your fingers crossed for him!

Thank you for your review on Tripadvisor, it has just made me smile! It is great to hear about children who we can help overcome fears. Kendal CrazyClimb is a great place to start with a fear of heights, with the elements being of varying heights and levels of ability. I really hope that it has helped your son and he continues on his climbing journey. We have lots of different sessions which will encourage him to progress so I hope we get the chance to meet him again soon.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

Having not climbed before we decided to go on the Crazyclimb session, which was surprisingly hard, and loads of fun. The instructor, Simon, was fantastic and should definitely write motivational speeches for a living.

“Great way to spend a morning”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

We visited the Crazy Climb session with 3 children aged 14, 10 & 9.
I had booked the session the previous day - would recommend booking to make sure you get on a a suitable session as this wasn't clear from the leaflet. The venue was easy to find and there was parking directly outside.
The session comprised 12 different climbing challenges including a bouldering wall and speed climb. It was fun and colourful.
Simon led the session and was brilliant in his handling of distracted boys to make sure they understood the safety instructions. He was on hand throughout the session and encouraged all the children to achieve their maximum.
It cost £15 per child which I think was a fair price and worth the money.
I didn't look at the other areas but there are plenty of other climbing walls etc to suit more experienced climbers.
