This holiday make sure a visit to York Leisure Centre is on your list of things to do. We have activities that will entertain all of your friends and family and will ensure that you make the holidays count!
Clip and Climb
Clip ‘n Climb provides a number of colourful and adventurous climbing walls designed to be multi-generational, appealing to both children and adult climbers. These exciting state-of-the-art climbing wall systems create fun experiences in a safe, supervised environment, from ages 4 and up. Bring the kids, bring the parents, bring your trainers and bring it on.
Extreme Climb sessions include a quick induction so you’re ready to scale the heights. And each 7.5m climbing panel has auto belay (think of it as an automatic safety rope) to take up the slack as you climb then lower you gently and securely to the floor.
Open every day over the summer holidays. To book or search availability please download the BETTER UK APP or click here:BOOK CLIP AND CLIMB
