A few weeks ago, we ended our March Break with a bang. After a couple of us went down with the norovirus (which is running rampant in our area) and our daughter deemed it “the worst March Break ever” – we decided we had to do something fun when we were finally all on the mend. So, to help salvage the remaining two days of their school holiday we made our first trip to Go Bananas in Kitchener.
We booked our climb online the morning we were going. Climb passes are for 1 hour and were $16.95 each ($11.95 if under age 4). From time to time there may be a Groupon or promotion available but at the time of our visit it was regular price. We also signed all of our waivers online – which helped with less chaos once we arrived at Go Bananas.
The first step when we arrived was for the kiddos to get harnessed up. There are two different sizes of harnesses depending on the size of your child – this process is fairly fast and started about 10 minutes prior to our climb.
Once all the children were harnessed they just had to wait for their climb time – there was a clock that they watched to help with the wait. Then they open the gates and the children flood in.
All of the walls were geared toward children and had the difficulty level posted. It was our kiddos first time climbing so we started off on some easier walls.
They climbed for the entire hour and by the end of their climb time had attempted most of the walls/structures at Go Bananas. I would recommend comfy/active wear type clothes, decent running shoes and a water bottle (they will for sure break a sweat).
The staff ensured the experience ran smoothly and safely and we were impressed with the service. Our kiddos had such a great time and keep asking when they can go back. If you’re close to the Kitchener area – give Go Bananas a try – your children will have a blast while being active and you’ll have a blast watching…with a coffee! .
Until next time….
