Because climbing just might be the most natural sport for our little daredevils!
Safe. Adventurous. Exciting. If you are looking for that rare and wonderful combination of kid-approved indoor activities that also get the mama tick of approval, head to Verm City in Quarry Bay. Hong Kong’s largest climbing gym, it was the first to introduce the climbing system Clip N’ Climb which has helped popularise this sport. It also has installed a national standard bouldering wall on its premises, offers top rope climbing, and has an augmented wall system to give rock climbing a fun and interactive new twist.
If all these terms have sounded like Greek and Latin to you, here are a few good reasons why you should start getting familiar with them. For one, it’s a great way to bond with your kids. Anyone can be a climber – no experience required! From four years up, once you have felt the adrenaline rush, you are quite likely to be hooked on (pun intended!) too. Verm City has walls that are made for all varying skill levels.
Did you know that climbing is going to be an Olympic sport by 2020 (time for you to learn the difference between lead climbing, speed climbing and bouldering)? Another good reason for your child to get interested! Quite amazingly, kids are naturals at bouldering, so you might find that you have a potential Olympian on your hands.
The good news is that Verm City now offers free birthday party packages. Got your child’s birthday coming up and wondering how to keep 15 kids entertained without them bouncing off the walls? Well, don’t. Let them climb up the walls at Verm City. All you need to do is pay for the day passes of the guests (minimum of 15) and then the package includes free birthday cake and drinks as well as the use of the party room for an hour.
Verm City also has a promotion on for its Clip N’ Climb system when you buy a 10-time Clip N’ Climb pass for $1,620.
