Navy Pier decided to treat itself to another gift following its 100th anniversary last week.
The Chicago landmark is reaching new heights with the addition of a 24-foot rock climbing wall at the end of July. Originally premiering as a part of the Pier’s indoor “Winter Wonderfest,” the new attraction will move outside near the Centennial Wheel.
According to the Navy Pier website, tickets go on sale in mid-July. The standard price to climb is $8 per person for three minutes. The only restriction is that climbers must weigh between 40 and 250 pounds.
Three climbers are allowed to climb at a time by using the auto-belay safety system, which means there is no need for a partner, the Chicago Tribune reports.
In addition to the rock climbing wall, Navy Pier also has the Centennial Wheel, Pepsi Wave Swinger, carousel, light tower ride and remote control boats.
