If the Indiana Jones films have taught us anything, it is that in order to have a successful teaching career, one must train one’s upper body to be adept at dangling. Channel your inner action hero with today’s Groupon to Island Rock in Plainview. Choose between the following options:

  • For $20, you get a Quickstart climbing package (a $43 value).
  • For $49, you get a Quickstart climbing package and a one-month membership with full gear rental (a $158 value).<p>

Island Rock’s wall-scaling instructors equip climbers with the skills needed to conquer more than 100 climbing routes scattered throughout a 9,000-square-foot climbing arena. Quickstart packages befit mountaineers with necessary gear and train them in tying proper knots, securing a harness, and belaying a partner the way a real mountain climber belays a loyal mountain goat. After basic technique and strength exercises inspire mountain mavens, a complimentary day pass goads customers into braving the gym’s 25-foot rappel tower, shimmying about the bouldering cave, and yodeling atop one of the 30-foot faux mountain faces.

The second option bestows amateur alpinists with the Quickstart package and a one-month climbing membership, which provides ample time to explore each of Island Rock’s cracks and crevices and play real-life games of Where’s Waldo? with spectators below. After climbing for a day or for a month, rock jocks can relax and rebuild muscles in the locker room’s soothing sauna.

Island Rock

More than 100 tricky routes dot the 30-foot climbing walls and 25-foot rappel tower inside Island Rock. The facility's 9,000 square feet of indoor climbing surfaces are all constructed to look and feel like real rocks, so climbers can close their eyes and picture themselves scaling K2 or the Venus de Milo. Knowledgeable staffers oversee attempts at the lead wall and bouldering cave and steer patrons toward a training room equipped with Cybex and cardio equipment. After a long day of climbing, guests can refresh in the locker rooms' showers and saunas.

Customer Reviews

This groupon/place was a great find! The staff was fantastic! We came with 6 people and didn't make a reservation, they fit us into a class after a short wait. Even with a bigger class, they were super thorough and made sure each of us has the skills down. Two additional friends came by later and the staff asked if they were students so they could get the student discount, which was really nice of them! Those two friends now belong to a climbing gym (back in Philly) and the one, who didn't even want to try it at all due to a fear of heights, loves it & has almost conquered his fear! Super cool. And super cool place! We don't live on LI anymore but we will definitely go back when we come home to visit!
