Leisure operator Clip ‘n Climb to take The O2 to new heights

5th June 2024 | Jack Oliver

International climbing leisure operator Clip ‘n Climb is set to open its second site in London at The O2‘s Entertainment District.

Taking 3,731 sq ft of space adjacent to Mamma Mia! The Party, the concept will consist of a vertical drop slide and different climbing challenges for children and adults alike.

The concept – which operates in 43 countries with over 350 locations worldwide – will also host sessions for toddlers as well as those with special educational needs.

The arrival of Clip ‘n Climb at The O2‘s Entertainment District follows the announcement earlier this year that the destination’s leisure and F&B real estate is now fully leased.

Clip ‘n Climb will join leisure brands at the destination such as roofwalk attraction Up at The O2, TOCA Social, Boom Battle Bar, Oxygen Freejumping, and iFLY Indoor Skydiving.

Janine Constantin-Russell, managing director of the Entertainment District and Outlet Shopping at The O2, said: “We have built an impressive leisure offering at The O2 over the last few years, but being fully let does not mean that this curation and innovation has to come to an end. Our visitors are always at the forefront of everything we do, and therefore it is key that we continue to deliver choice and memorable experiences that set us apart from other destinations. Clip ‘n Climb is a fantastic and complementary addition to our space, and its accessible and family-focused appeal elevates The O2’s leisure offering even further, reinforcing our position as the go-to choice for families.”

Mike Dawe, managing director at Clip ‘n Climb, added: “The O2 is a renowned entertainment destination within the UK, and we are excited to be a part of this thriving scheme, adding to the already impressive portfolio of prime leisure operators. The O2’s innovative approach to our new space matches our ethos; to deliver fun, safe, memorable experiences to customers of all ages and abilities.”

The news follows a raft of new openings at The O2 in recent months, such as premium sportswear brand Castore and sustainable designer outlet store All Good Things, which both made their London debuts at the destination. In addition, pan-Asian quick-service restaurant Chopstix also recently opened at the Entertainment District.

The Entertainment District at The O2 is owned and operated by AEG Europe and Crosstree Real Estate. Richard Lucas Property Consultants acted for Clip ‘n Climb, whilst Lunson Mitchenall represented The O2.
