Scaling New Heights: Rock Up Manchester - UK'S Newest Climbing Marvel

Greetings, adventurers! We are thrilled to announce the grand opening of Rock Up Manchester, the newest star in our rock-climbing constellation and the 8th Rock Up centre in the UK late this summer! It’s time to ‘reach new heights’ in your family’s leisure time, as we bring the exhilarating experience of rock climbing to the heart of Manchester, at the state-of-the-art indoor ski slope, Chill Factore.

A New Era of Indoor Climbing

We, at Rock Up, part of the global Hapik group with a presence across Europe and America, are elated to bring to you an indoor climbing centre unlike any other. Our mission? To offer families a novel, fun-filled way to stay fit, experience new adventures and socialise in an invigorating environment. This world-class facility will inspire beginners and seasoned climbers alike to push their limits and relish the rush of climbing.

Features that Elevate

The new Rock Up centre in Manchester is set to become your go-to destination for indoor adventure. Boasting over 25 uniquely designed climbing walls, this state-of-the-art centre caters to climbers of all abilities. Whether you’re challenging yourself on our tricky overhangs, or your children are learning to scale their first wall, we’ve got something to keep everyone engaged and excited.

But that’s not all. The Rock Up Manchester centre introduces an exhilarating rope course, providing a different flavour of adventure and a fantastic opportunity to build balance, agility, and confidence.

For the Whole Family

Rock Up Manchester is all about providing a complete experience for the entire family. We cater for toddlers and kids, as well as teens and adults and all in-between. Truly a one-stop destination for your whole family.

To make sure even the littlest members of your family have a fabulous time, we have a specially designed soft play area. A safe, fun-filled environment where your little ones can explore, play, and make new friends.

Great for Groups


Rock Up climbing is not just a thrilling adventure for individuals and families; it also offers exciting opportunities for corporate hospitality events, school outings, and scouting groups. The centre provides an excellent venue for team building activities, where colleagues can bond, communicate, and overcome challenges together. Rock climbing fosters trust, encourages problem-solving, and promotes effective communication, making it an ideal choice for corporate groups looking to enhance collaboration and build stronger relationships.

Moreover, schools and scouting groups can take advantage of Rock Up’s facilities to engage students in a unique and physically active experience. Climbing promotes physical fitness, builds resilience, and develops self-confidence in young individuals. With its emphasis on safety and expert guidance, Rock Up ensures that these groups have a memorable and enriching adventure while instilling valuable life skills.

See you soon, Manchester!
