Special attractions

As well as the climbing walls, the indoor climbing arena at High Rise Lisburn includes two very special additional attractions – the infamous Vertical Drop Slide and the Leap of Faith – will you be brave enough!?

Find out more below about these special attractions!

Vertical Drop Slide

In this extraordinary experience, you will be kitted out in a skydive suit and a helmet. Holding on to a handlebar, you are pulled up the face of the slide towards the 9-metre pinnacle. You can let go at any time you choose before free-falling seamlessly down the slide. Will you be brave enough to hold on until the top? Enjoy the truly exhilarating adrenaline rush of dropping to the bottom from a great height!

Experience this unique challenge for just £2 – tickets for the Vertical Drop Slide can be pre-booked online or purchased on the day in High Rise.

Leap of Faith

This adrenaline-raising challenge is an immensely popular attraction that is sure to get your heart pumping! The goal is to climb the central post to a platform, from where you can take a running jump towards a trapeze to swing more than 8 metres above the ground. You get to choose how far away your target is. Family and friends can watch you take the Leap of Faith (and that that all-important Insta-worthy photo or video!) and get a bird’s eye view from our stunning Mezzanine Floor. Will you be brave enough to take the Leap of Faith at High Rise?

Experience this unique challenge for just £2 – tickets for the Leap of Faith can be pre-booked online or purchased on the day in High Rise.

*Please note, guests need to be a minimum of 120cm for the Leap of Faith and Vertical Drop Slide.

Here’s how much fun you could be having when you book Clip ‘n Climb at High Rise Lisburn!

Know before you go

  • Online pre-booking of your Clip ‘n Climb session is highly recommended as our sessions fill up quickly. You can visit without having pre-booked, but there is no guarantee that we will have spaces available.
  • All those wishing to climb need to book.
  • Please aim to arrive at the centre 15 minutes before your booked time to get checked in and receive your wristbands. All briefings will start promptly and, if you miss your slot, we cannot guarantee you will be allowed to climb.
  • All climbers must sign a ‘waiver’ – this should be done online at the time of booking (parents or guardians to sign for those under 18).
  • All guests participating in Clip ‘n Climb must attend the briefing session each time they visit, where they will be given a safety demonstration, be fitted with their climbing harness and be given instructions by a Clip ‘n Climb instructor. All those under the age of 14 need to be accompanied to the pre-climbing briefing by a parent/responsible adult aged 18+.
  • No adults will be permitted to enter the Clip ‘n Climb arena unless they have booked to climb (or need to accompany a child with support needs, in which case belongings must be stored securely in a locker and a hi-vis vest will be provided).
  • We recommend all guests use the bathroom before the start of the pre-climbing briefing session.
  • Parents or guardians can spectate and interact with climbers in the arena during the Clip ‘n Climb session from our café area. Due to the air conditioning in the climbing arena it can sometimes be cool in the centre, so anyone spectating is advised to bring something warm to wear, if needed.
  • Loose clothes are recommended to allow you to climb easily. Skirts, sandals, crocs or rock shoes are not permitted. Long hair should be tied back. Please ensure you are dressed appropriately as refunds will not be offered if you are unable to climb.
  • Leave your jewellery at home, or secure it in one of our lockers – pockets should be emptied before climbing.
  • The minimum age and weight is 4 years and 1.5st/10kg. This is to allow our auto-belay system to function safely.
  • The maximum weight limit is 22st/150kg and there is no maximum age limit, as long as the participant is in good health.
  • Minimum height for Vertical Drop Slide and Leap of Faith is 4ft/120cm.
