Parents enjoy the healthy, alternative birthday party activities offered at the Bouldering Garden, rock climbing gym, in Columbia, Missouri. Birthday parties are easier than ever in Columbia. With a quick call to check availability, your event is booked so you can proceed with the invitations, stating "save-the-date!" Then, on the day of the event, a party table is available for decorating, opening presents, and enjoying pizza, cake, cookies, or other goodies you want to bring for the participants.

Kids always love the birthday party activities, including not only a maze of climbing walls, but also a rope swing, slack line, tight rope crawl, spider web cargo climbing net, rotating climbing wall, imaginative obstacle course challenges, and other ninja warrior-like problem solving with some of their closest friends.

Obstacle course activities include balance boards and a slack line, both of which improve core strength, important climbing balance, and while building trust in others who are spotting. Imagine testing your balancing skills, on a 1 inch wide line of webbing. Below your feet are thick blue mats that represent a pool of finger and toe eating monsters. Every time you touch a mat, a monster takes a toe so the goal is to stay on the walls.

Once across the tight rope and quicksand, we swing across the snake pit and head back to the Tread Wall. There you can try to climbing steep slab for thousands of feet or completely pump out on a seemingly, endless overhang. (The rotating wall is as a vertical tread mill for climbers) Next, imagine your self extended out-and-over, off the edge of a pirate ship while managing across a the cargo net. Even spider man would enjoy hanging out on this web. Family group activities are encouraged and parents are always welcome to show the kids how it is done! Healthy concessions are offered at the front counter, as-well-as, a range of rental equipment, such as climbing shoes. A table, coffee maker, and microwave are available for members and group events.

2 - 4 hr Outdoor Event:

Outdoor Group Event Prices: $99 instructor reservation fee, then a fee per person the day of event. Three to four hour outdoor events are great for ages ten (10) and up, while younger kids are welcome with direct parent supervision.
