“What an absolute ripoff”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2013

Having waited with eager expectation for the new climbing facility in Maryport, I can only say that massive disappointment does not go far enough to describe my feelings. Having visited and climbed at many of the indoor climbing walls in the Uk and some abroad, I feel that the badly needed addition of a top class wall for West Cumbrian climbers has once again not been offered. The only half decent local one being in Keswick. This fun based, clip 'n' climb facility is not in any way an actual climbing centre, granted, so why have Leo Houlding, one of the top climbers around to open it.
I also feel sorry for locals and tourists who may not know how much they are being ripped off in admission fees. Top class climbing centres only charge £6.00 to £8.00 to climb for as long as you wish on the day you visit. Maryport clip 'n' climb at £13.00 for just one and a half hours, - the first half hour of which is for safety briefing etc -giving just one hour for climbing is nothing short of scandalous. What an absolute ripoff!!

“good few hours of picking on girlfriend!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013

enjoyed, and we will be back! been to quite a few climbing walls in the past but 'clip n climb' was more of a relaxed and fun place... but there is more than enough to do and have a laugh in the 1 1/2 hours. (can even have a pint when finished)!

Excellent new indoor attraction in Maryport, within easy drive of the Lakes. The climbs are fun and varied and suitable for all ages and levels. Well worth a visit and good value for money overall . Nice cafe attached.

“fantastic value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2013

1 1/2 hrs of great fun, first 30mins learn the safety rules and get fitted to a harness then 1 hour of adventure and fun. I think there are 23 different climbing walls and they really are different, definitely makes it exciting for you to keep wanting to go back! does get busy so prob be good idea to book in advance, just to be safe! we will def be going back with our 5 yr old!

“Great fun”

Well worth a trip for outside of the lakes. Good for young kids and upwards and nice cafe too. My son loved his 2 visits and is looking forward to climbing against me next time.

Its not your normal climbing wall....
