“fantastic!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2014

Had a 2 hour session at boulder world which included induction and shoe hire. Really suprised myself with what i could actually do. Had a fantastic time and actually can't wait to go back. Staff are very friendly and you are able to grab a coffee after climbing. Also a very good workout. Definately would recommend boulder.

“Superb all round. Give it a try!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014 via mobile

My husband surprised me & our 2 kids (5.5 & 11.5 years) to a 2 hour session at Boulder World, Belfast. This included climbing shoes & tuition.
I arranged our session for Sunday at 12, & arrived appropriately dressed in comfortable stretchy sports gear. I was expecting one of those climbing walls kids go ape for at fairs. But what I saw was awesome! ! Floor to ceiling & wall to angled wall climbing surfaces! Even upside-down surfaces!
There were colour coded hand and foot holds graded blue to black ('easy' to hard). I mainly stuck to blue and green, but to be honest I wasn't fussy, I took advantage of anything within my short reach!
Now I was in a group with 2 young teens & my kids. And I had a blast!
I really surprised myself. I totally enjoyed it! I got to the top of some walls; and I crept across walls; I even hang upside-down but lacked the strength/skill to push/pull myself up.
And not a harness in sight!
Yes my hands ached - I should have removed my rings and cut my nails beforehand. And the next day I could hardly lift my arms!
But I seriously cannot wait to go again!
It certainly is a novel and fantastic way to exercise the whole body and not even notice it! I certainly got my pulse up, a good sweat, and stretched away for nearly 2 hours!
And both of my kids enjoyed it too! There were walls available for all ages and abilities.
Highly recommended.
Staff I met were very friendly and so enthusiastic and encouraging no matter what your level of experience.
My son is considering it as a venue for a birthday experience with some friends.
It's wonderful that Belfast has this!
