BIRTHDAY PARTIES

Our birthday parties are very popular, so give us a call or send us an email so that we can help you arrange a fun climbing birthday party at The Hangout.

We have a selection of cold drinks and snack foods to choose from, or you are welcome to bring your own party food and drinks. We can also arrange for Pizza and other local take away’s to be delivered. We have a microwave for your use and you are welcome to put your cake in our fridge. We also have a BBQ available if you you would like to use it. The BBQ requires booking, so just let us know when you book your party.

Why not download one of our invites (from “downloads” on the right of this page) and take one more thing off your  “to do” list now!

Everybody attending The Hangout must have completed an enrollment form prior to their first climb and if under 18 years of age it must be signed by a parent or guardian. These are also available from “downloads”. Most parents will send these out with the party invitations.

If your children are under the age of thirteen they will need someone older to hold the rope for them (called belaying). We will lend you a harness for free and teach you how to do this when you arrive. You are welcome to have up to one adult belayer (rope holder) for every two children under 13 at no charge (one to every 3, 4 or 5 kids is fine too). You can choose to have extra belayers, however there is an additional charge for this. Parties for children aged 13 and above do not require adults to hold the ropes for them as they can be taught to belay for each other.

For Mum and Dad we have a fantastic coffee machine which makes a great tasting cup from fresh beans.

Please see our Groups Discount Chart below for our great party prices (prices include harness hire).

SCHOOLS

For schools we have a standard, competitive low price. This takes all the guess work out of budgeting your visit. Please contact any of our helpful staff, identify yourself as a school inquiry to obtain information on our great school price.

Many schools incorporate indoor rock climbing into their outdoor education and physical education curriculum. The Hangout provides an excellent opportunity to challenge students both mentally and physically in a comfortable, controlled environment. We can go beyond climbing by working with teachers to ensure students get more than just fun from us. If required, let us know what you would like the students to achieve, and the depth of involvement you desire and together we can make it happen. Rock climbing is not only popular as part of physical education programs, but also with other classes wishing to enhance communication skills and promote teamwork.

Contact us to discuss what we can do for you.

All of our staff hold senior first aid certificates and working with children clearances. We use climbing gym specific, semi-dynamic ropes and height-adjustable floor-mounted belay anchors for all top-ropes. We use ‘slow-go’ pulleys at the top of our ropes and Grigri’s for the belayer. We also use the double carabiner (reversed and opposed) clip in method to ensure the utmost of safety during your visit.

We have $20,000,000 public liability insurance. A copy of our certificate of currency is available from downloads (to the right).
