CLYMB Abu Dhabi awarded two Guinness World Records


LYMB Abu Dhabi, the new sports and leisure attraction on Yas Island has been awarded with two Guiness World Record

titles for the world’s largest indoor skydiving wind tunnel at 10 metres (32 feet) in diameter and 54.6 m (179.2ft) high and the world’s tallest indoor artificial climbing wall reaching 42.16 m (138ft). Prior to the announcement, visitors have been

enjoying the indoor skydiving and climbing facilities as well as the two in-house Food and beverage outlets at CLYMB Abu Dhabi since November 2019. Highly trained instructors take visitors through

safety tips and techniques before introducing flying and climbing techniques. The attraction features five climbing walls of varying degrees of height and difficulty, in addition to the largest indoor skydiving flight chamber. Visitors are also able to watch others tackle

The SUMMYT and watch others fly in the wind tunnel from the free viewing platforms. Bianca Sammut, general manager of CLYMB

Abu Dhabi and acting head of Yas Theme Parks, commented: “We are delighted that our adrenaline-fuelled attractions have been awarded two Guinness World Record titles. As the title holders of the world’s largest indoor skydiving wind tunnel and world’s tallest indoor artificial climbing wall, we are able to provide customers with two unique, record-breaking experiences, unlike any they have witnessed before. This recognition consolidates our

position as a global attraction and we look forward to allowing our visitors to reach new heights.” CLYMB Abu Dhabi has implemented safety
