Kinetic Heights proves that you don't need to be outside to reach the sky. The enormous indoor facility challenges guests with a high-rope course complete with dizzying climbs, mind-bending obstacles, and high-flying ziplines.
The concept for Kinetic Heights began when a couple of Charlotte dads saw how much their daughters grew in skill and confidence during their annual YMCA trips to outdoor ropes courses. They realized that they could offer kids—and adults—a place where they could enjoy that development every day, and in November of 2016, that dream was born.
Today, the center combines open-play sessions and fitness classes. Each 45-minute K-Sweat and K-Flow class pushes participants to overcome fitness barriers with functional-fitness and yoga-based exercises, respectively. The kid-friendly K-Motion program mixes age-appropriate obstacle and adventure training to keep kids minds and bodies active.
