Miral announced today the next new exciting attraction CLYMB to be developed on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi. Miral will bring the world’s widest flight chamber and tallest indoor climbing wall to the island in 2018, complementing Yas Island’s existing array of experiences, reinforcing its status as the region’s leading leisure and entertainment destination.
Visitors to the flight chamber will be able to mimic the experience of skydiving within an unmatched width of 9.75 metres (32 feet); making it the world’s widest.
CLYMB will also feature the world’s tallest indoor climbing wall at a height of 43 meters. The climbing walls offer a challenge to beginner, intermediate and expert climbers as they will have the chance to scale 4 walls of varying difficulty. The tallest expert-level wall will tower 43 meters above the ground.
Alongside the flight chamber and climbing wall, CLYMB will include retailers, food and beverage outlets, and a space to host parties. The attraction will also be linked to the nearby Yas Mall, connecting CLYMB with even more of Yas Island’s entertainment and leisure offerings.
On this occasion, Mohammed Abdullah Al Zaabi, CEO of Miral said: "CLYMB project is an important and distinctive addition to the unique portfolio of destinations developed by Miral on Yas Island. With the world’s widest flight chamber, and tallest indoor climbing wall coming to Abu Dhabi, we will offer visitors the opportunity to enjoy exceptional experiences that combine excitement and adventure together.”
“This announcement endorses our continuous commitment at Miral 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”, Al Zaabi added.
Zublin Construction L.L.C has been appointed by Miral as the main contractor to carry on the construction work which has already commenced on the site. As of beginning of this month, project development progress reached 35%, and the US $100 million project is expected to open its doors on Yas Island for visitors from across the world by 2018.
The announcement of this new project follows Miral’s recent reveal of the new Yas Island vision for the year 2022, aiming to make Yas Island one of the world’s top destinations for family fun attracting 48 million visits annually. Yas Island also looks to host 100,000 corporate travellers, and is projected to have 4,000 hotel rooms catering to various guest requirements.
