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.
A group of Navy SEALs designed the BattleFrog Race Series. This trio of obstacle courses—8K, 1-mile, and 400-meter—challenges bodies and minds with scenarios similar to what SEALs face in their training sessions. Each course has a different number of obstacles. Participants climb nets and slosh through mud, all while building teamwork and testing their endurance. The events also feature bounce houses for kids and exhibits along with food and music.
All developed to nurture skills such as team-work and self confidence, the six rope courses at Adventure Creek immerse visitors in the heart of the woods. Explorers navigate floating bridges, take a zipline over the tree canopy, or shimmy suspended over the forest floor below. Additionally, they are safely connected to the course via harnesses, and each area is suited for varying ages and skill levels, so the park can accommodate groups or whole families.
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.
