The Castle Fun Center’s Indoor Rock Climbing Wall is a fun way for people of all ages to challenge their climbing ability. Our Climbing Wall offers a family friendly environment for people of ages and ability levels.
Our 30-foot wall has a complete timing system, with lights, and sound, to record each climber’s time. It also has a racing function that allows climbers to compete against each other! Our attendant will ensure you are securely wearing your auto-belay safety harness prior to climbing and once you reach the top, you’ll safely and gently enjoy your glide back down to the floor level.
Rock Climbing is one of the best total body workouts available. It’s a unique sport in that boys and girls are equally capable. A common misconception is that climbing requires an already strong upper body. This idea often discourages girls from participating. An effective rock climber is one who understands that much of climbing is related to technique, balance and leg strength.
No matter how strong your upper body currently is, there is a grade you can start at and work from. The motion of climbing works every part of you. From your fingers and forearms as you grip the climbing hold, your abs and core as you lift your legs into position then your whole body as you propel yourself up with your legs and pull up with on your arms.
Climbing develops lean, endurance muscles. It strengthens core muscles better than exercise routines designed to focus on that particular region. The core stabilizes the body, and leads to a stronger, less injury prone body. Climbing strengthens your hands and forearms, biceps, shoulders, neck, traps, upper back, lats, lower back, abs, glutes, thighs and calves. Your entire body, including cardiovascular systems, benefits from rock climbing.
