ClimbZone Laurel

Yes, there are two climbers on this wall
The first US location of New Zealand-based ClimbZone opened just before Thanksgiving in Laurel, MD near the intersection of Route 1 and Contee Road, about 15 minutes away from Emerson.

Several of our neighbors have already visited and report that it's tremendous fun!

ClimbZone has over 70 individually-themed climbing walls, each 28 feet high and decorated with a different design ranging from Mount Rushmore to a rocket ship to a huge library bookshelf.

Some of the walls are extra-wide to allow groups to go up in parallel and even race to the top.

Anyone who can fit in a harness can climb the walls -- kids of all ages and grown-ups too!

There are walls of varying degrees of difficulty, with the "Washington Monument" wall supposedly the most-deceptively difficult.

The walls have an automatic belaying system allowing climbers to descend easily and safely after climbing one of the walls, without needing a belaying partner.

There's also a bouncehouse and some giant inflatable slides to whiz down between climbs, and to keep the non-climbing kids (and adults) entertained.
