Climb Through Water
Innovative Rock Climbing offers one of the world’s first waterfall climbing wall, the Hydrophobia, making its debut at the IAAPA Show in November and making waves on the amusement park scene as a hot, new attraction. A 25-foot-high waterfall greets climbers with more than 600 gallons of rushing water, giving thrill-seekers an exhilarating experience. Climbers face the towering, cascading waterfall while wearing a safety harness and cable that gives a sense of realistic mountain climbing, but allows Hydrophobia to be safe enough for almost any age user. Climbers can conquer the waterfall one by one or race a friend.

Nicros-EasyWallTM is designed for projects limited by both space and budget. Installation is as simple as bolting to an existing wall or framework, and at two inches thick, they take up next to no space. The panels are easily cut and drilled, so custom installations are simple. The realistic rock look is achieved from molds of actual rock—such as Nicros’ A.R.T.WallTM product—but the cost is much lower than many other rock-like climbing walls.
Extreme Engineering, designer and manufacturer of mobile climbing walls and stationary systems, has its own patented Belay in the Box auto-belay systems. All walls come with a full one-year warranty and a limited lifetime on the panel system. Extreme Engineering offers various types of climbing wall systems designed specifically for the fitness market. Stationary systems are available that can be placed in a small footprint while still offering the maximum surface area you can get on a climbing wall.
