(SPOT.ph) Airports are often boring, with waiting areas where we hope not to spend more than four hours at. But that doesn't seem to be the case for Singapore Changi Airport. The award-winning port of entry, known for its elaborate, efficient, and highly entertaining setup, has added another attraction to its belt for travelers to enjoy. Climb at T3, a family-friendly rock climbing gym for climbers of all ages and skill levels, just opened in the basement of Changi Airport's Terminal 3 public area. With rates starting at P600, you can flex those muscles and climb up the wall while you wait for your next flight

The facility is open from Mondays to Fridays from 12 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. and on Saturdays, Sundays, and Holidays from 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., with guided sessions starting from 12 p.m. onwards.

The rock climbing wall was designed by the official wall provider for the 2020 and 2024 Olympic Games. Its nine lanes are each equipped with state-of-the-art auto belay systems, which allow hobbyists and first-timers to climb even if they do not know how to belay. Climbers can challenge themselves with over 20 different climbing routes to pick from, which in time will grow to as much as over 30, each with varying levels of difficulty.

But for those hesitant about conquering the eight-meter high wall, a two-and-a-half meter high boulder wall spanning 12 meters in length is available. Although it should be noted that this wall was designed for younger and more inexperienced climbers aiming to build their confidence.

And if you're worried about not having the equipment needed for wall climbing, you'd be glad to know that the rates for all packages include the use of the necessary safety harness and equipment, plus shoes for wall climbing. Just make sure to bring a pair of socks you can use with the rental shoes.
