Challenge Yourself

The 14,000 square feet of terrain at the AZR arena is designed to match the conditions of actual rock climbing. With nearly 50 top ropes, multiple overhangs, numerous cracks and various textures, the climbing walls offer fun for everyone regardless of skill level. There is also a thrilling zip line, rotating treadwall and exhilarating rappelling platform. If you’re really fit, try to tackle the slopes and angles of the enormous bouldering walls.

Become Parent of the Year

Instead of stressing over your young ones climbing the walls at home or in your hotel room, bring them to the climbing gym where they can burn off that energy in a fun but controlled environment. The friendly staff is always there to guide children and teens through the processes. With very little assistance, your kids will be scurrying up 30-foot walls while building confidence and strength.
