The Climbing Experience opens at Powerhub Business Centre in Maidstone

Kent's first multi-discipline indoor climbing centre has opened its doors to the public.

The Climbing Experience at the Powerhub Business Centre in Maidstone can cater for as many as 400 people of all ages and levels of experience and invited its first visitors inside on Saturday.

The centre offers themed fun wall climbing, a 30-metre competition and 12-metre traverse wall, and a dedicated bouldering space of more than 700 square metres.

The state-of-the art facility also includes a yoga studio, cross-fit and body building facilities, a soft play area and a café.

Co-founders Robert Woods and Ed Neil say The Climbing Experience is ideal for both children in the form of after-school clubs and adults by offering space for business meetings and team-building experiences.

The sport is identified as one of the best for building up fitness, with an intense climbing session burning between 600 and 1,000 calories an hour.

KentOnline was given a look around inside the complex last month as the final preparations were being made and then again at the weekend when it opened for the first time.

Mr Woods said there are plans to hold other events to mark the official opening over the coming weeks.
