My Little Climbing Room–Review & Passes Giveaway!

Media Review

My kids are a little confused sometimes – They are active and mostly outgoing, but they are pretty scaredy cats when it comes to adventure or height-related activities. So when we were on our way to My Little Climbing Room a few weeks ago to try their indoor rock climbing facility for kids, I was a little skeptical whether they would back out at the last minute. Just before we reached the place, I tried to prep them so that they know what to expect and both of them gave me looks of apprehension. I was all prepared to say to the folks of My Little Climbing Room – “Sorry guys, I think my kids are not ready for this. We’ll come back another day.” Turned out…. to be completely OPPOSITE. LOL!


The moment we stepped into My Little Climbing Room, the kids literally went wild. With a room as colorful and fun-looking as this, I think it’s quite hard for any kids to contain their excitement. It was great that we went during a weekday morning, so we were the only ones there until another family joined us half an hour later. The kids had the whole place and all the facilitators to themselves!


The Little Climbing Room is really an indoor rock-climbing facility built specially for kids. The rainbow colors in the room, along with little games you can play while climbing the rocks make it a very fun experience for the kids, I assure you. Even the very young kids can attempt to climb up a short distance on the easiest wall, and feel happy that they have achieved something. That’s the thing about rock-climbing – It builds courage and strength, and develops perseverance and tenacity!

The kids quickly got suited up and were raring to go! - Such a big contrast from a mere 15 minutes earlier when they were all apprehensive and scared! =X


Safety briefing before they start. Necessary for safety sake.


The facilitators are superb – They were able to gain rapport with the kids almost immediately.


Some warm-ups before attempting those walls!


It was Halloween season when we visited, so there were costumes for kids to dress up before climbing.


I thought it was hilarious to see a pink witch do rock-climbing. LOL! The costumes, especially the hat, made the climbing more challenging, so the kids ditched them very quickly. Hahaha!


And the kids climbed and climbed – They were each given a score card to get points for every challenge they overcame – On some walls, they must touch different points on the wall in numeric order; on others, they can only step on a certain color, etc. There was a fixed number of walls in the room, but the different variations made it interesting and fun for the little ones.


If you are concerned whether your kids are too young to do this, there was a four-year-old boy who could complete the green wall (which was the most difficult wall), and even my 11-year-old Joey had difficulty completing it! So it really does not depend on the age, but the strength of the kid and how many times the kids have tried it.


The kids rounded off the session with a mass game – “Sharks!” where music will be played and the kids are to run around the room. Once the music stops, everyone is to climb up the rock wall to avoid the sharks! The kids went crazy! Haha!

Check out to find out more about this place. I guarantee that your kids will love it there! My kids can’t wait to go back again, and this time round, they want to bring their friends too!
