If your kids are always climbing on the couch, or you, rock climbing could be the perfect activity to let the get it all out of their systems. Rock climbing is a great sport for kids of all ages, with centres set up to cater for all ages and abilities. Start them young and watch how fast they’re springing up cliff-faces and giving you a heart attack. Most centres will include equipment hire in their prices, so you don’t need anything to turn up and give it a go.

Kids aged 8 and over will love the variety here, with rock climbing, ninja warrior and parkour on offer. Each activity has a strong focus on balance, coordination, strength and agility.

Skyzone isn’t just about jumping, they’ve also got a fantastic climbing set up. Harnesses have auto-braking so you don’t need someone holding your rope – great if you’ve got multiple kids to watch.
