Clymb Abu Dhabi, a climbing and sky diving attraction will open on Abu Dhabi‘s Yas Island on November 29 November. The building was designed by the Dubai-based team of Cansult Maunsell, and a subsidiary of global consulting firm Aecom. The development is owned by Abu Dhabi-based real estate firm Miral.
The US$100m project will deliver the world’s tallest indoor climbing wall at 43 metres tall, and its widest skydiving flight chamber, spanning over 10 metres. A spokesperson from Miral said it will have challenges that appeal to both novice and expert climbers and skydivers. “The architecture of the rock-like Clymb building has been inspired by the rugged, mountainous landscape of the United Arab Emirates, popular already with skydivers and rock climbers.”
The attraction will also feature a range of F&B outlets, and space for parties and social events. An air-conditioned passageway links Clymb Abu Dhabi to other Yas Island attractions, such as Ferrari World Abu Dhabi and Yas Mall.
“The facility would provide a world-class sporting experience. As one of the most highly-anticipated new attractions in Abu Dhabi, it is set to become the ultimate hub for adventure in the region, offering something completely unique, challenging and unforgettable for all ability levels.” – Chairman of Miral, His Excellency Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak.
Other leisure attractions located in close proximity to Clymb are Yas Waterworld and Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi.
