How Long Does Your Birthday Party Last?

While your climb will last 2-hours, your guests should plan to be at The Adventure Park for about 3 hours. The extra hour provides time for gearing up, learning about the equipment and practice before climbing. And it allows some time for birthday cake and present opening when the climbing fun is over.
