The experience

We know Clip ‘n Climb is pretty new to Northern Ireland. Based at the brand new, state of the art High Rise centre in Lisburn, our exciting new Clip ‘n Climb experience is a fun and exhilarating activity for everyone (aged 4+) to enjoy!

Our sessions last for 1 hour 30 minutes but we recommend arriving 15 minutes before your booked slot.

The Clip ‘n Climb experience includes a 30 minute introduction, harness fitting and safety briefing followed by a full 55 minutes of climbing. That leaves 5 minutes to remove your harnesses and exit the arena before enjoying some refreshments in our café.  At High Rise our aim is to make your whole experience as smooth, enjoyable and memorable as possible from booking in to checking out. Our guide below explains it all.
