Yas Island – where dreams really do come true! At this world-class destination like no other visitors will invigorate their senses and live out their fantasies to make memories that will last a lifetime. Here, one may experience out of this world attractions, championship golf courses, intimate fine dining, pristine beaches, five-star hotels, the warmth of the Emirati people, and the world’s tallest indoor climbing wall.
The growing list of attractions in Abu Dhabi just got longer with the addition the world’s tallest indoor climbing wall and its widest skydiving chamber – housed in a giant futuristic multi-sided diagonal cube on Yas Island. The skydiving chamber will be 9.75 meters wide, and the climbing venue’s highest wall will have a height of 43 meters.
Developer Miral said the US$100 million “Clymb” is scheduled to open next to Yas Mall in 2018. Work is already under way, and the project is 35 percent complete as of the beginning of this month. Zublin Construction has been appointed as the main contractor, Miral said.
The new attraction is part of the commitment “to develop and create leading destinations with the highest global standards on Yas Island that offer unique immersive and exciting experiences to everyone, as well as contribute to the development of the tourism sector in Abu Dhabi, and the UAE as a whole,” said Mohammed Al Zaabi, the Chief Executive of Miral.
Clymb will join existing attractions Ferrari World and Yas Waterworld and will follow future attractions such as the Warner Bros theme park, which are all part of the vision to turn Yas Island into a top global destination attracting 48 million visits a year by 2022.
