TWO LOCATIONS, TWICE THE FUN!

The Blackout is our spectacular UV bouldering event which takes place at Rockstar Building 3 every year (now in its 4th year). However, this year you may have spotted we have a second brand new venue just two doors down - Rockstar Building 5 - which means The Blackout just got crazy-big!

THE BLACKOUT - FUN WALLS SESSIONS

To celebrate the opening of Rockstar Building 5 we are running three special Blackout Fun Walls sessions in Building 5.  There are only three sessions available on the night, at 5pm, 6.30pm and 8pm, each with only 20 spaces on. 

These special Fun Walls sessions are 90 minutes in length (includes 30 min kit-up and safety briefing) and are available for both kids and adults to take part in. Spaces on these awesome Blackout Fun Walls sessions are on a first come/first served basis, once spaces are gone they're gone!

THE BLACKOUT AT BUILDING 3

The main Blackout Bouldering Event will take place at Building 3 as normal. Doors will open at 6.00pm in Building 3 although you can arrive earlier and head to our Crux Cafe mezz in Building 5 for food and drink.

Lights will go out in Building 3 at 6.30pm and will come back on again at 10.00pm.

THE BLACKOUT AFTER PARTY

To continue our celebrations for the opening of Building 5, we will be hosting a special Blackout After Party at Building 5 from 10pm until 11.30pm.

Join us on the Crux Cafe mezz where beer, soft drinks and food will be available and party in our main High Walls Arena for a special social atmosphere - Blackout style!
