AN amusement complex has launched a new attraction that will see youngsters and adults alike reach new heights during the half term.

Walton Pier has unveiled its new Vertigo climbing walls and attendees got to enjoy the attraction for the first time on Saturday, February 11.

The Vertigo climbing walls have opened to anyone aged four and above as long as participants are comfortable with a harness.

A spokesman for the pier said: “Parents are to be present at all times, but do not have to climb, unless you want to show the youngsters how it’s done, as you adults can also climb.

“Take note that you must arrive 20 minutes before your session for a full safety briefing otherwise you will not be permitted to climb.”
