It was my eldest daughter’s 7th birthday party this afternoon and we had a climbing party at Wycombe Leisure Centre.
On arrival we were met by the friendly team at the climbing wall in the Leisure Centre reception and after signing the consent form all 12 children were strapped into their harnesses, given a safety talk and participated in a little warm up.
There were 3 instructors in total who were all fantastic with the children and gave them the confidence and guidance they needed. They started on the small wall and progressed to the different walls until they got to the most difficult.
The party was an hour in total and each child got to climb at least 4 or 5 times. Everyone, including the birthday girl thoroughly enjoyed it and they were all exhausted by the end of it.
When I asked my daughter to describe what she thought of the party she said “scary when you look down but so much fun when you climb up”.
There is a party room onsite that you can book and take along your own food, or there’s a Frankie and Benny’s a short drive away which is what we opted for.
