New 'climbing centre meets theme park' facility to open in Milton Keynes this weekend
A new children's climbing attraction is set to rock a Milton Keynes shopping centre this weekend.
Climb Quest is set to open on Saturday at Kingston Centre, offering fun for everyone aged four upwards.
Describing itself as "a climbing centre meets theme park", it has 28 climbing challenges. These include two Extreme Challenges - a vertical drop slide and the 'Stairway to Heaven', which are a series of poles that climbers scale without using their hands.
Climb Quest co-owner Chris Walthew said: “The beauty of Climb Quest is that the experience is open to everyone. The equipment that we have at the centre means that climbing is easy to access, so climbers can challenge themselves as much as they would like. We’re really excited to be bringing this experience to Milton Keynes.”
The company's chosen charity is Spectrum, which provides events and support for families of children with autism, learning difficulties and disabilities. Spectrum will run sessions for their members at the centre.
Richard Crowther from British Land, which owns Kingston Centre, said: “Climb Quest is a fantastic addition to the Kingston Centre. High quality leisure facilities play an increasingly important role within our retail portfolio and a new climbing centre will not only broaden the centre’s appeal but improve the experience for our customers.”
Climb Quest’s official launch is on Saturday February 8 . From February 29, the centre will be offering with birthday parties and specialist events - including Little Rockers sessions for two to four-year-olds.
It will be open from 9am on weekends and during school holidays, and from 11am to 6.30pm during the week. Booking can be made now at www.climbquest.co.uk
