The O2 has announced that Clip ‘n Climb, the international climbing leisure operator, will be joining the destination later this summer. This new addition marks Clip ‘n Climb’s second site in London and will be located within The O2’s Entertainment District, owned and operated by AEG Europe and Crosstree Real Estate. This announcement follows the full leasing completion of the destination’s leisure and F&B real estate earlier this year, highlighting The O2’s innovative approach to enhancing the customer experience.

Operating in 43 countries with over 350 locations worldwide, Clip ‘n Climb will occupy a new purpose-built space adjacent to Mamma Mia! The Party. The 3,731 sq ft concept will feature a vertical drop slide and 20 different climbing challenges of varying difficulty, catering to both children and adults. Additionally, the Clip ‘n Climb space will offer ‘mini mountaineer’ sessions for toddlers and dedicated SEN sessions, increasing its accessibility for The O2’s diverse visitor base.

Clip ‘n Climb will join The O2’s impressive line-up of leisure brands, which includes roofwalk attraction Up at The O2, TOCA Social, BOOM BATTLE BAR, Oxygen Freejumping, and iFLY Indoor Skydiving. Following the news of a fully leased Entertainment District earlier this year, The O2 continues to introduce new concepts by creatively utilizing unused space within the destination, as evidenced by Clip ‘n Climb’s new signing.


Janine Constantin-Russell, Managing Director of the Entertainment District and Outlet Shopping at The O2, said: “We have built an impressive leisure offering at The O2 over the last few years, but being fully let does not mean that this curation and innovation has to come to an end. Our visitors are always at the forefront of everything we do, and therefore it is key that we continue to deliver choice and memorable experiences that set us apart from other destinations. Clip ‘n Climb is a fantastic and complementary addition to our space, and its accessible and family-focused appeal elevates The O2’s leisure offering even further, reinforcing our position as the go-to choice for families.”

Mike Dawe, Managing Director at Clip ‘n Climb, added: “The O2 is a renowned entertainment destination within the UK, and we are excited to be a part of this thriving scheme, adding to the already impressive portfolio of prime leisure operators. The O2’s innovative approach to our new space matches our ethos; to deliver fun, safe, memorable experiences to customers of all ages and abilities.”

This announcement follows a series of new openings at The O2 in recent months, including the premium sportswear brand Castore and the sustainable designer outlet store All Good Things, both making their London outlet debuts. Additionally, Chopstix, the pan-Asian quick-service restaurant, has recently opened in the Entertainment District, further enhancing The O2’s comprehensive retail, F&B, and leisure offerings.
