Climbers stand at the base of the textured plywood and rock surfaces that climb the walls of Kendall Cliffs' 7,000-foot space and picture themselves reaching the summit—a 35-foot high arch that reaches across to the opposite wall. Designed by Nicros, the facility presents varying gravitational challenges for scalers to mount, from tackling the bouldering cave to tickling the bouldering cave's petroglyphs. Intrepid and experienced instructors lead climbing classes, calibrated for varying skill levels and covering topics such as knot tying, belaying, bouldering, and sport routes.
The Westerville Community Center offers a plethora of options for the athletically-inclined, including a track, fitness room, gymnasium, and the Watering Hole, an indoor pool and waterpark complete with slides, shallow wading pools for kids, and lap lanes. Beyond that, at the climbing wall, you can ascend one of five routes to the top. Fiberglass-reinforced concrete climbs 30 feet upward, revealing crags and dips that mimic natural rock formations to give climbers the authentic experience of an outdoor climb without constantly being pecked at by eagles.
Lasers flash across a 4,000-square-foot arena. Bumper boats splash against each other in a 135,000-gallon lake. An elastic EuroBungy harness flings bouncers skyward for death-defying flips. These are just a few of the attractions and activities at Fun-n-stuff, where families can also fill their days by racing go-karts, climbing a rock wall, or gliding around a rink on rented roller skates. Guests who want to breathe in fresh air can putt through two 18-hole mini golf courses and slide down a 24-foot inflatable slide. The littlest visitors play in a ball pit, whereas the Extreme Looping Bikes send older ones soaring through the air, just like the majestic eagle they rode to their middle-school graduation.
The Fight for Air Climb is a fight for many things. It's a fight for those afflicted with lung cancer. It's a fight for infants and older children stricken with asthma. It's a fight to prevent kids from ever falling into the peer pressures of smoking, and it's fight for those with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). The fight isn't easy. In fact, it's a total body workout that tests the lungs, stamina, and shoe soles. But it rewards all who participate, and helps to make the world a better place to inhale.
Like ascending an indoor mountain or scaling a concrete beanstalk, the Fight for Air Climb starts participants of all ages at the base of Cleveland's massive 52-story skyscraper, Terminal Tower. Step by step and floor by floor, without the benefit of escalators, elevators, or Fizzy Lifting Drink, altruistic athletes, youngsters, and senior citizens torch calories and thank their capacious lungs as they march to the top tiers of the tower. And for those who want to maximize their exercise experience, a training guide is on hand with tips on how to achieve fitness goals.
