  • Vertical Adventures
    The 4,000 square feet of climbing space at Vertical Adventures encompasses terrain for top roping, bouldering, and lead climbing under the watchful supervision of a trained staff. The gym challenges wall scramblers to test both their physical endurance and problem-solving skills as they take on the top-rope courses, which represent the majority of the routes and tower as high as 25 feet. Rather than let new patrons become overwhelmed by the variety of courses or get stranded at the top without reading material, the gym’s instructors also conduct lessons for all climbing levels to help climbers improve technique and conquer fears.

  • Fight For Air Climb
    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.

  • Climb Time
    Patty first discovered rock climbing in college. “I got sucked in right away,” she says. Before long, she found herself marrying a fellow climber—a man she met at Climb Time back when it was still managed by the original owners who also blended their relationship with climbing. “They got married at the gym,” Patty says, describing how the first owners scaled the roof to say their "I dos." Though Patty and her husband didn’t exchange rings at the top of a wall, they did decide to buy the gym. The expansive arena challenges climbers with a 24-foot climbing wall, where novice and expert mountaineers alike grasp handholds with chalked palms or coax a gorilla to carry them up piggyback style. Along the other side of the facility, Patty and crew dare climbers to test their strength on a wide array of 15- to 60-degree bouldering inclines that sit above moveable pads to cushion jumps or falls.

  • Hocking Peaks Adventure Park – Hocking Hills
    Boasting a course of 18 ziplines and a high-ropes course, Hocking Peaks Adventure Park immerses adventurers of all ages in a multitiered wilderness playground sprawling through the woods and fields of Hocking Hills. Surrounded by a sun-dappled tree canopy, the ropes course combines 60 midair challenges—including catwalks, suspended logs, and rope crossings—that visitors can surmount while strapped into safety harnesses that also help them blend in with current forest fashion trends. For kids, an alternative course and zipline hang a few feet above the ground. Within the same woods, ATV rides cover 15 miles of rambling ground trails, while paintball matches storm a separate wooded area with two levels of play and built-up cover. As they emerge from the woodland playground, guests can take on the 42-foot high inflatable waterslide, or climb into one-, two-, or three-person transparent Ogo balls to roll down a hillside course more gracefully than a classically trained hamster. Additionally, an 18-hole disc-golf course—designed by professional disc-course planners Innova—sprawls through 6,000 feet of hills, beckoning players to aim for chain-fringed baskets.

  • Westerville Community Center
    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.
