If you have an active child I highly recommend signing them up for a few sessions here. I still felt badass when I was finished with my climbs, though. Crash pads are scattered around and there's plenty to play on no matter what your level. The facilities are safe and top notch as well. The staff and members are super friendly. This facility is top notch and the staff are great.
So I have to start this with saying that I never write reviews. I had a group of 10 kids coming in last minute as in two hours before they were going to arrive and the gym not only accommodated them completely but gave them an awesome experience! Rock climbing is for all ages and abilities. This entry was posted in. I don't know what you would call it. To the people err person.
Found this place with a few friends one afternoon. Rekindled my desire to climb, so I wound up getting a membership and taking a few classes. Definitely check this place out for yourself or your child. I never just take the time, but I always read reviews. Indoor rock climbing surfaces include overhangs, boulders, aretes, chimneys, caves, and lead walls, the facility is suitable for rock climbers of all ages and abilities. I come and climb here 2-3x a week now and will probably always be challenged with something then again I suck, so maybe it's just me. You can drop in or participate in one of their organized activities.
The staff here are really fantastic and understand how to communicate with kids. Aside from the setup, the overall aesthetic left a lot to be desired, maybe the safety too. Finally, I felt so uncomfortable that I went downstairs. Stay away if you care about your child's safety, because I am fairly certain he still works there. If you're looking for a mega-sized climbing gym, this isn't it.
The manager called me the next day and apologized but mentioned nothing of letting this guy go. The staff here are really fantastic and understand how to communicate with kids. I'm completely unfamiliar with rock gyms and what is considered, you know, awesome, but as far as I'm concerned, this place is awesome! Part of what I like about it is that everyone is so friendly. Every other gym I've been to had stacks of crash pads available for climbers. Not just for bragging rights, but winning this contest would help us continue our important mission! We had to wait forever for the one employee to hold the rope for our kids to climb the walls. I walked in and was immediately confronted with a rock gym that. We plan on signing him up again in the near future.
The bottom line is this is a very fun physical demanding activity that requires thought as well. My son comes here for an after school program every Monday. You can drop in or participate in one of their organized activities. Conveniently located, in southeastern Pennsylvania, for climbers in Chester, Lancaster, Montgomery and Delaware counties, as well as, being just a short trip from northern Delaware. It was seriously a lot of fun. Located in the former Vertical Extreme facility, the Doylestown team has brought their unique style to Chester County.
I'm not going to switch gyms anytime soon, but it was fun to check out a new place. We even had a birthday party here. It is never ok to put your hands on someone's elses child. The photos on the Doylestown Rock Gym website make this gym look much larger than it is. They also have a separate kids section that's hidden off in the back room.
There were a handful of very legit climbers, and I didn't feel awkward or weak at all when I lost my mind at being like, six feet high without a harness. The indoor rock climbing gym and adventure facility is suitable for rock climbers of all ages and abilities. If you're looking for a quick place to climb, I guess this might be okay. Birthday parties, parents with kids. Taking school's impact into consideration when planning fall activities can make the season more enjoyable for the whole family. Really awesome local rock gym! We were nominated for the Best Children's Party on the 2019 Bucks Happening List! My son looked shook up after we left the gym.
Definitely a lot of good beginner and intermediate climbs though. Their setup forced me to practice traversing for two hours - which I guess isn't bad but I was hoping to be challenged, not bored. The gym is really kid-friendly too. Downingtown Rock Gym walls include overhangs, boulders, aretes, chimneys, caves, and lead walls. Also, and I don't know how they get away with this, there were hardly any crash pads. Needless to say I called the gym the next day to speak to the manager and cancel my family membership, I left a message. I'd totally reco it to anyone looking to try out climbing, check out a new rock gym, or have a children's bday party.
