Warm welcome for Clip ‘n Climb Thanet

Clip ‘n Climb Thanet officially opened its doors on Saturday 19th March and has since welcomed over 3,000 climbers.

Located at the Westwood Retail Park in Broadstairs, the new centre has attracted climbers of all ages with its variety of colourful climbing challenges, including a 7-metre Vertical Drop Slide, Speed Wall with timer and ValoClimb, an augmented gaming climbing wall.

On opening day, Centre Manager, Tom Hickman, greeted their first customers with a bottle of champagne and a Clip ‘n Climb goodie bag. Also in attendance was the Clip ‘n Climb mascot, Pip the Possum, who entertained the children and posed for photos with families.

Clip ‘n Climb Thanet aims to provide a fun and safe space for the community to climb and unwind with the addition of its in-centre café, overlooking the climbing arena. With a bright future in sight, the centre has plenty more to offer in the coming months including toddler sessions for ages 2-4, climbing sessions for SEN children, adult-only nights and an after school club.

Here’s what a few of their customers had to say:

“I bought my 12-year-old yesterday, absolutely loved it. Think we might be moving in.”

“The staff were fantastic from the start of the party until the end. Extremely friendly and helpful.”

“There are very few things our girls, 8 and 13, can do together, but this hit the spot”.

“The place is fab, clean and safe – staff were lovely, helpful and lots of fun”
