The gym is beginner-friendly and suitable for both adults and kids. So, no need to worry if it's your first time trying out the sport!

Those of you who are familiar with E!Hub will notice that UpWall Climbing took over the spot where the Ferris Wheel once stood. So, while you're making your way up, you can also look through the glass panes and admire the view of the surrounding areas. There's also a glass roof so you can enjoy some natural light as you are rock climbing.
