16 walls to choose from

  1. Commando assault. Make your way through the tyres and up the ropes.
  2. Commando challenge. It’s a vertical rope wall to test body and mind. 
  3. Commando climb. It’s wheely tricky to make your way up the sheer face of tyres!
  4. Fireman rescue. Make your way to the top of the burning building to be the hero of the day.
  5. Frozen castle. It takes a cool head to scale this icy wall.
  6. Galaxia. Stand on the edge of the universe as you scale the heights of the solar system.
  7. Giant’s staircase. Take these stairs one giant leap at a time to reach the top.
  8. Lightning strike. Climb the giant lightning bolt for an electrifying view from the summit.
  9. Lunar landing. Clamber through the craters of the moon and defy gravity to get to the top.
  10. Mirror image. Climb against a friend and watch their progress on this transparent wall.
  11. Real rock challenge. This sheer rock face takes stamina to conquer.
  12. Ringtastic. Use the loose rings to pull yourself up this wall.
  13. Tetro. Love computer games? You’ll love this old-school homage!
  14. The race. Identical walls side by side - but who will be the winner?
  15. Tree House. This fairytale tree house is designed by local school pupil Lily Rowland. Climb through the branches to the clouds up in the sky.

There really are 16 - with the head-to-head challenge of number 14 featuring two!
