Safe climbs for little people, now bookable every day.
Book kids climbing in Glasgow
Because of new Covid-19 restrictions, we must limit the number of people in the kids’ climbing area. To avoid queues and waiting times for parents, we have created a booking system so that we can manage capacity, help keep your family safe and minimise clusters at reception or in the cafe.
Face coverings must be worn at all times when not climbing. Please arrive wearing a mask. See general centre rules.
Take your child climbing at TCA
You can supervise your children (of any age) in our kids’ specific climbing area. Slots are bookable online via the “Parent Supervised sessions” below. If you have any issues please phone 0141 429 6331. Please note that over 8s are allowed to climb in our main climbing area but must pay standard entry prices and must be supervised. You cannot pre-book the main climbing area.
Weekdays vs weekends
We recently made changes to our system that will ensure access for those who used to attend kids classes – which we can’t currently run in the same way – and for families who would like to bring their kids. These changes only affect weekend access to the kids climbing area. Thanks for your patience as we bed-in new systems. If you would like to bring children (1 adult can bring up to 2 children) please note:
Weekdays – book anytime
Weekends – booking opens at 3pm each Friday (slots will appear in the “Parent supervised” tab below)
While the rest of the centre may get busy on weeknight evenings, the kids’ area tends to be very quiet. It is also quiet midweek during the day.
BEFORE YOU ARRIVE
Safety is very important. All individuals using the climbing centre must complete appropriate forms to ensure that they understand the risks. To save time at reception, please read our policies and complete Adult Registration Form and Child Registration Form before you come to TCA. Completing this in advance will make your visit to our centre, with young children, much smoother.
While we are unable to run our usual kids classes, we are offering instructed sessions for 8+ in the kids climbing area at weekends. Please note that these classes are only held in the kids’ area and as such may not be suitable for older/taller kids. They are best suited for 8-11 year olds.
COST £10 including shoe hire
DURATION 1 hour
These are drop-off sessions. Participants will be met at the top of the stairs (next to the Laser Quest sign) and brought into the wall by one of our instructors. They will be brought down to the main entrance and accompanied until pick-up. Any parents wishing to stay in the centre will need to pay for entry. This is because we have a reduced max capacity in the centre which is being prioritised for pass-holders, climbers and other paying customers.
These are not official NIBAS classes, but sessions may be logged in booklets if appropriate.
Book via the “Instructed sessions” tab below.
