Is your child attending a birthday party at Highball?

Welcome to our Climbing Party FAQ!

We’re excited to have you join us for an adventurous and fun-filled celebration. Below, you’ll find answers to some common questions regarding our climbing birthday parties and details on the form that need to be filled out for each participant before the event. If you have any additional inquiries, feel free to reach out to our excellent team.

  1. What is a climbing birthday party? Our climbing birthday party is a unique and thrilling way to celebrate your childs special day. It’s an opportunity for your kid/s and their friends to experience the excitement of indoor rock climbing, challenge themselves, and create lasting memories.
  2. Do participants need any prior climbing experience? No prior climbing experience is required. Our experienced instructors will provide safety instructions and guidance throughout the session. We have climbing routes to accommodate both newcomers and experienced climbers.
  3. Do I need to fill out a form for my child? Yes, all participants are required to have an acceptance of risk form. Participants under 18 years of age must have their waiver form completed and signed by a parent or legal guardian. Waiver forms must be completed before the party begins. Failure to complete the form for your child will result in them being unable to climb.
  4. How can I access the form? Our acceptance of risks form can be easily filled out online through our website. Simply click the red button above and follow the instructions provided.
  5. Can waiver forms be filled out on the day of the party? To ensure a smooth and timely check-in process and prompt start, we strongly recommend that all forms be completed in advance before the party. If you are bringing someone else’s child with you be certain their parent or guardian has completed their child’s form.
  6. Can I add extra participants to the party? We can accommodate groups of up to 6 or 12, chosen upon booking. These numbers are set in stone and no exceptions will be made for any additional participation. 
  7. What should my child wear? We recommend all participants wear comfortable clothing as you would for any sport (a spare change might be needed as clothes can end up chalky). Long hair needs to be tied back and jewellery removed before the session. We provide all the climbing equipment they’ll need for the session including climbing shoes.
  8. Can parents watch? We allow up to 2 spectators at a time, so you may take it in turns to watch your child climb. Spectators are not allowed in any of our matted climbing areas. If you just want to stay nearby, we have a café that serves hot and cold drinks as well as an ever-changing range of snacks. You’re more than welcome to relax with a cuppa and cake. Please note in colder seasons we recommend bringing warm clothes.
  9. Is food provided during the party? While we do not provide food, you’re welcome to bring your own birthday treats and refreshments to enjoy in our designated celebration area after the climbing session.
