Unveiling success: 3 Clip ‘n Climb Franchises opened in a week!

In the fast-paced world of active entertainment, achieving milestones is not just about reaching numbers; it’s about creating unforgettable experiences and building communities. We’re thrilled to announce the grand opening of not one, not two, but three vibrant Clip ‘n Climb franchise centres. In the space of just one week, our newest UK locations in Crawley, Wandsworth, and Halifax have burst onto the scene, igniting excitement among thrill-seekers and families alike.

Here, we dive into the success of each of our three centres, which collectively sold over 6,500 tickets during the February half-term period.

Clip ‘n Climb Crawley, Sussex

Kicking off the hattrick of new centres was the opening of Clip ‘n Climb Crawley on 4th February. The largest Clip ‘n Climb centre in the UK opened its doors to visitors with an impressive array of 33 challenges, alongside a three-tier soft play area and Clip ‘n Climb’s exclusive South Ridge Café. Over the course of half-term, the response to Clip ‘n Climb Crawley was nothing short of extraordinary – with over 3,000 climbers ascending to new heights, and more than 620 soft play entries. And let’s not forget the children that selected Crawley as their ultimate celebration destination – the centre happily accommodated 9 group bookings and have another almost 78 booked for future visits.

Sarah Cook, owner of Clip ‘n Climb Crawley, said:

“We’re thrilled with the success of the Clip ‘n Climb Crawley launch. Half-term saw nearly full capacity every day throughout the week! Running our own centre and being part of the Clip ‘n Climb journey is incredibly rewarding. We’re eagerly anticipating the busy weeks ahead, with numerous bookings already secured.”

Clip ‘n Climb Wandsworth, London

One hour up the road into London saw the eagerly awaited debut of Clip ‘n Climb Wandsworth on 7th February. Situated on the high street and with 27 exhilarating challenges to tackle, this centre wasted no time in making a splash. Half-term certainly wasn’t a quiet one – as they welcomed just short of 1,900 climbers into their arena. Their party rooms buzzed with guests celebrating birthdays and they anticipate even more celebrations in the coming months, with 120 parties already booked to visit the centre, and more bookings daily.

Speaking of birthday celebrations, the centre was exclusively reserved for an afternoon to celebrate the birthday of the daughter of a renowned A-list movie star couple. But, our lips are sealed, as revealing their identity is strictly off the cards.

Simon, owner of Clip ‘n Climb Wandsworth, said:

“Thanks to the unwavering support from the Clip ‘n Climb team since day one, I had every confidence that the centre’s opening would be a resounding success! Their continuous availability whenever I reached out has been invaluable. I’m excited to see what the next few months have in store, and hope to expand my Clip ‘n Climb portfolio later this year.”

Clip ‘n Climb Halifax, Yorkshire

Rounding off the trio was the unveiling of Clip ‘n Climb Halifax on 9th February. With 19 challenges including the super popular Vertical Drop Slide, it might be the smallest of the three new centres, but its unique setting within Galactic Golf showcases how expanding a multi-activity centre is the way forward. 1,626 climbers made their way through the doors boosting not only the café sales by 850% compared to the same period last year, but Galactic Golf sessions have also spiked since the addition of Clip ‘n Climb.

Paul, owner of Clip ‘n Climb Halifax, said:

“We are delighted that we made the decision to expand Galactic Golf. Clip ‘n Climb now offers a whole new level of fun and that’s proven by the fact our centre is busier than ever!”
