You are carefully harnessed in and the helpful staff make sure all the kids know how to unclip themselves and attach themselves to the harnesses.
If you're tired of climbing, you can have a try at the dark tunnels where you wriggle your way through and find your way out, in darkness. This is not for kids scared of the dark or tight spaces. It is really cool though to see on the little cameras located on the side how the kid is going in there.
Bayside Rock also offers birthday party packages which seem to be good value for money.
This place is buzzing on the school holidays and with the cold weather approaching, it is the best place to take the kids for something fun and different to do.
If you are more experienced and aged over 13 years, you can try there auto belay section. We have never tried this because the kids are not of age, but it looks like it would be challenging and fun.
We have visited this rock climbing centre three times now since I first discovered it and it is one the kids favourite venues for school holiday entertainment.
Also, a side note for those who have never been - allow yourself at least twenty or fifteen minutes before your session begins because you will need to complete a waiver on the computer for each child before they start. This can be timely because other people may be there doing it too so get in early, especially if you have a lot of kids with you.
Just to mention as well that the centre is very clean, staff are cool and friendly, the toilets are accessible and clean, and they also offer snacks and drinks for a small price at their snack bar. I would suggest going to the local takeaway shops for proper food though.
So next weekend or school holidays, if you are looking for a fun place for the kids to burn off some energy, add Bayside Rock to your list.
