You don’t need a cape to fly…

Gravity bothering attraction, Clymb is a whole-year-old this month — and despite this being a remarkable year for other reasons, the capital’s number one indoor climbing and skydive destination has achieved a lot in this past 12 months.

For example, it currently holds two genuinely impressivee Guinness World Records — the world’s largest indoor skydiving wind tunnel (32ft in diameter and 179.2ft high) and the world’s tallest indoor artificial climbing wall (138ft).

Peak inside adventuring.

The traditional cake and balloon don’t fit the festivity profile for an adrenaline hub, so for their celebrations this year, they’re dropping the First Time Flyer package to just Dhs175.

That gets you two flights, pre-flight training, flight gear rental and access to the accumulated knowledge of a professional instructor. And the offer is valid until the end of November.

It’s normally Dhs235, so that’s a pretty decent drop even without a parachute.

Clymb, Yas Mall (by Ferrari World entrance), Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, Sunday to Thursday 11am to 9pm, Friday and Saturday noon to 11pm. Tel: (600) 511115,
