Yas Island’s CLYMB venue, which will house the world’s widest flight chamber and tallest indoor climbing wall by 2018, is now 50% complete.

The new attraction, which was announced late last year, will include a flight chamber with a width of 9.75 metres and what will be the world’s tallest indoor climbing wall at a height of 43 metres.

CLYMB will also include retailers, food and beverage outlets, and a space to host parties. It will also be linked to other attractions on Yas Island.

Mohamed Abdullah Al Zaabi, CEO of Miral, said: “The project is now 50% completed and is on track for a 2018 opening.

“It will include a very futuristic design and will be connected to Yas Mall and Ferrari World through an air-conditioned tunnel, creating a fully indoor experience.”

As part of its strategy to position Yas Island as a top 10 leisure destination by 2022, Al Zaabi explained that Miral aims to develop its attractions to be accessible all year round to provide comfort to visitors even during the hot summer months.

Miral also announced this week that its Warner Bros Abu Dhabi theme park is 60% complete and will feature six themed areas to be completed by 2018.
