Young Parents (Singapore) - - THE PLAY ISSUE -

In­stead of dull grey walls that you might nd at other climb­ing cen­tres, Clip ’n Climb is awash in bright colours and pump­ing mu­sic. Billed as an in­door climb­ing theme park, the cen­tre is lo­cated in the HomeTeamNS club­house within the newly opened Our Tampines Hub.

HomeTeamNS brought in the in­door climb­ing con­cept from New Zealand, where Clip ’n Climb founders started the rst cen­tre 10 years ago. There are now over 100 branches world­wide.

Climbers must un­dergo a short safety brieng be­fore they can get started. The walls are equipped with an au­to­matic be­lay sys­tem, which elim­i­nates the need for a hu­man be­layer.

Once you’ve reached the top of the wall or wish to give up, just hold on to the rope and it takes you down gen­tly and slowly.

You have 19 routes with var­i­ous difculty lev­els to choose from. There is no min­i­mum age for climbers; they just need to weigh be­tween 10kg and 150kg.

If you’re not join­ing your kids, make your­self com­fort­able in the wait­ing area, which has sofa benches – and free Wi-Fi.

HOW MUCH $18 for mem­bers, $22 for Peo­ple’s As­so­ci­a­tion or Safra mem­bers, or $25 for guests.
