    Climbers must undergo a short safety briefing before they can get started.

    The walls are equipped with an automatic belay system (pictured) which eliminates the need for a human belayer.

    Once you’ve reached the top of the wall or wish to give up, just hold on to the rope and it takes you down gently and slowly.

    While it is branded as a theme park, it doesn’t feature any roller coaster or amusement rides that you would usually associate it with.

    Here, you’ll find 19 quirky wall designs, where both kids and adults  beginners as well as experienced climbers – can enjoy the thrill of scaling 8m-high walls.

    These include Triffid, a snaking “beanstalk” inspired by fairy tale Jack and The Beanstalk (pictured centre).

    The Straits Times reported that there are now 10 climbing gyms in Singapore. Other facilities include Climb Central, located in the middle of Kallang Wave Mall; outdoor space The Cliff at Snow City in Jurong East; and Climb Asia, one of the pioneers in the scene that opened in 2003.  

    Instead of dull grey walls that you might find at other climbing centres, Clip ‘n Climb is awashed in bright colours and pumping music.
