About

What is Climb City?

Climb City Las Vegas is an all-new attraction – a vertical, climbing escape room

It fuses the puzzles and mental challenges of an escape room with the physical challenges and obstacles of a climbing gym.  

At Climb City, you’re the hero. Teaming up with your date, friends, or co-workers, you’ll take part in an exciting, interactive storyline as you attempt to pull off the greatest heist in history: robbing the vault of a major Las Vegas casino. 

Working in groups of two to four, you’ll crack codes, overcome obstacles, and open trap doors, all while ascending towers built from 40-foot shipping containers. 

It’s like a choose-your-own-adventure story… but in real life. 

Mixing fun, suspense, and photo-ops in an environment that calls for trust and communication, Climb City is the perfect setting for a date, party, corporate retreat, or a fun night out with your friends. 

Now, we need you to help bring this all-new attraction to life! 

Why Support Climb City?

At Climb City, you’ll have the opportunity to experience something that’s never been done before

To do this, we’re offering a limited number of pre-sale tickets for half-price (or even less). This is a one-time only pricing offer, exclusive to Kickstarter. 

That’s where YOU come in. 

Your Kickstarter pledge will help us make our vertical escape room a reality, providing additional funding for the materials, skilled labor, and everything else we need to build the first tower at Climb City

The tower’s exterior will feature an outdoor, warm-up climbing area, while the interior will be a themed, vertical escape room, complete with auto-belay climbing ropes, trap doors, and all the obstacles you might encounter if you were pulling off a casino heist. 

If your pledges exceed our funding goal, the additional money we raise will help us achieve our stretch goals, building additional towers and adding even higher production value elements to your vertical escape room experience. 

As one of our backers, you can help us bring Climb City to Las Vegas. 

Grab pre-sale tickets for yourself today and share our Kickstarter with all your friends and adventure buddies. Together, we can do this!

Meet the Team Behind Climb City 

The vision for Climb City came from combining the passions of three friends – James, Tyler, and Boston. 

James, Tyler, and Boston
James, Tyler, and Boston

 An engineer and MBA, James has spent years taking adventure clubs of 250+ people caving, climbing, and camping every weekend. But his real dream was to build a novel, never-before-seen adventure attraction. James’s love of storytelling and adventure is evident in the intricately engineered choose-your-own-adventure storyline branches that help to make the escape room element of Climb City even more unique. He’s also in charge of designing and engineering elements such as laser alarms and booby traps, and handling the more boring (but equally important) marketing and accounting sides of Climb City. 

An experienced commercial architect, Tyler has designed a number of public entertainment venues and athletic training facilities in Utah and Nevada. A passionate rock climber, he’s also travelled the world to conquer challenging climbs in several countries. Climb City is the outcome of years of scheming and dreaming in his quest to find a way to make indoor rock climbing a more exciting experience. As our architect, Tyler is responsible for designing the structure for our vertical escape room. It’s his handiwork that will ensure Climb City meets local zoning, permitting, and universal building code requirements. 

Boston is a professional filmmaker, virtual reality (VR) developer, and cross reality (XR) experience designer. His impressive resume includes 360, 3D and VR projects for Google, Nokia, Coca-Cola, and other big-name companies. He also has over 100,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel, Freakin Rad, which showcases his talent for storytelling, cinematic artistry, and special effects. You’ll see Boston’s hand in Climb City through the stories and video content that make you the hero in your own movie. (And, if we reach our stretch goal, you’ll also get to enjoy his work in future vertical escape room stories that place virtual reality at the heart and center of your adventure.) 

Timeline 

We’re excited to bring Climb City to Las Vegas. 

And with your pledges, we can. 

Below, you can see our estimated timeline for the construction and completion of the first vertical escape room tower. 

Reward Levels

Tickets to Climb City will retail for $40. Choose your pledge level now and receive a special Kickstarter price! You’ll be able to pick t-shirt colors and sizes and add-on items after the campaign ends.

Stretch Goals 

If your pledges exceed our funding goal, we’ll put the additional money towards realizing our stretch goals. 

These are: 

  • Incorporating additional high-value production elements, such as zip lines, interactive storylines featuring VR, and more 
  • Adding cool amenities that will further enhance Climb City, including food trucks, event spaces, and hang-out areas 
  • Building additional vertical escape room towers

Risks and challenges

Every project comes with its own unique risks and challenges.
We will use a portion of the funds we raise here to acquire insurance, as is done at existing rock climbing gyms and high-ropes courses.
All Climb City participants will be required to sign a waiver before participating in any challenges.
There is also a chance that construction delays and other challenges could postpone our launch date. If this occurs, we will let you know immediately via email.
Thanks again for your support!
