I have no previous climbing experience, is Clip 'n Climb for me?

Clip ‘n Climb is designed to be fun for EVERYONE regardless of ability! The difficulty of our challenges vary so there’s something for everyone to have a go at, from beginners to experts. Our staff will also be there to assist with those less confident.

How long do Clip 'n Climb sessions last?

Before you climb you will take part in a 15 minute safety briefing session and harness fitting, followed by 55 minutes in the arena and 5 mins to debrief and remove your harnesses.

When do I need to arrive?

Your briefing will start at the time that you have booked.

Is there parking on site?

Yes, we have a car park at the front of the Centre. Please park sensibly within the marked bays.

What should I wear?

Please wear comfortable clothing and trainers.

Only closed toe shoes are allowed. For safety reasons, we cannot allow sandals, flip flops, high heeled or croc style shoes into the Clip ‘n Climb Arena. 

Long hair must be tied back and all loose jewellery, hats or hooded tops must be removed prior to climbing for safety reasons.

 

Do I need to bring any equipment with me?

No, equipment is provided by us and there are no additional hire fees for this.

Do you have wheelchair access?

Yes, we have wheel chair access, if you require further assistance please speak to a member of staff.

Do you have lockers?

Yes, we have lockers, they are big enough for coats and  bags. Keys are available from the reception.

Do you sell gift vouchers?

Indeed we do. They are available to purchase online- please visit our Café and Shop page.

Do spectators need to pay?

You only need to pay for those climbing, whether they are 4 or 94. Spectators can enjoy watching their friends and family climb from our   café area, which runs alongside the climbing arena.  We know that having a family member to help and encourage you is important to many children and we endeavour to let 1 non climbing adult in the climbing arena with each climbing child, however if we reach our maximum capacity, the Duty Manager may ask non climbers to leave the climbing arena.

Can I leave my child alone at your site?

Young people, over 11 years of age can attend Clip ‘n Climb without an adult with them, however they need to be booked in by an adult who has signed their waiver – this can be done online.

What ages can children climb from?

During open climb sessions (standard climb), climbers need to be 4+ years olds.

Toddlers, 2+ years, are only able to climb during our Rhyme ‘n Climb sessions and our  Family sessions, which take place at 9am Monday to Saturday throughout the school holidays.

Can we bring our own food?

Customers and guests are NOT PERMITTED to consume food or drink at Clip ‘n Climb Bicester unless it has been purchased from our on-site Café, except for weaning babies. You can bring your own filled water bottle to consume
during your session – but only water is allowed within the climbing arena.

The only other exception is linked to cakes for either a Famous 5, Snowdon, Ben Nevis or Everest birthday party, and this will be explained by our Party coordinator when making a birthday party booking.

Birthday cakes are not to be brought into The Clip ‘n Climb Café.

This is as part of our commitment to Natasha’s
Law.

We would like to Thank You for helping us better support people with allergies, by not bringing your own food,  into the Clip ‘n Climb Café.

What if my session is cancelled due to Covid-19?

If you need to cancel your session due to a member of your household showing signs or symptoms of Covid-19, or you have been told to self isolate, we can re arrange your session to a date after your isolation.

If we are unable to host your booking on the date originally booked due to a National or Local Lockdown, you will be issued with a voucher code enabling you to rebook your session once the lockdown is over.
