Clip 'n Climb special attractions

As well as the climbing walls, the indoor climbing arena at High Rise Lisburn includes two very special additional attractions – the famous 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 £2.50 – tickets for the Vertical Drop Slide can be pre-booked online or purchased on the day in High Rise.

Guests are asked to purchase and use wristbands for the Vertical Drop Slide in the first 30 minutes of their climbing session to ensure they have enough time to redeem their wristbands. Wristbands will not be sold during the last 30 minutes of each session.

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 £3.50 – tickets for the Leap of Faith can be pre-booked online or purchased on the day in High Rise.

Guests are asked to purchase and use wristbands for the Leap of Faith in the first 30 minutes of their climbing session to ensure they have enough time to redeem their wristbands. Wristbands will not be sold during the last 30 minutes of each session.

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

Safety briefings start promptly, and late arrivals will not be allowed to join. You may be able to join the next briefing if spaces are available, but your climbing time will be reduced to 30 minutes.  We must adhere to strict staff/climber ratios and more often than not this means we cannot deviate from our schedule of bookings at all.  Punctuality by guests is therefore vitally important.
