I've tried it once and it is difficult and takes skill. It is fun to watch experienced climbers work their way around the different walls. I've also been there for a few kid's birthday parties and they have a blast. The staff have always been helpful and professional.

I've always loved it here since I was a younger girl. Definitely a great place to go, whether you're by yourself or with family. The staff is always friendly and attentive, and the sense of community is very strong. If you're looking for a fun activity or a new gym to join, look no further.

We called in without booking. The team was happy to accommodate two 8 year old boys once the usual waivers were completed. The climbing arena is truly amazing and my boys had a fantastic hour with Janice (their guide/instructor). The experience surpassed both my and my boys expectations. An absolute gem.

Our first visit to Carabiner's was for a birthday party (teens) - the staff was very knowledgeable, helpful and everyone had fun. Since then, I've gone again and find the facilities top quality with climbing routes for all levels and abilities. Staff are knowledgeable and safe. A fun place and good exercise to boot.

We finally got into Caribiners, a place I just kept putting off visiting for no other reason other than uncertainty on how the place worked as far as visiting, paying for just a day, who helps you climb the rocks etc. We went for the sole purpose of climbing the rock walls so we scheduled a visit ahead of time...

Four of us went to climb yesterday (ages 8 - 55) and it was fantastic Patrick was our belayer. He helped us learn and was very encouraging. I would recommend this as a family activity or for serious climbers.

Recently took my 13 year old son and his friend to this impressive indoor climbing facility in downtown New Bedford. Their instructor (belayer) for the hour, Corey, was friendly and encouraging to the boys as he taught them how to properly climb up the multiple routes of the 6-story rock walls. They got braver and braver as time went on... More
