(UPDATED) 5 reasons why Outpost Climbing's fun zone rocks

Updated: Dec 13, 2023

Outpost Climbing (the former T-hall) offers a variety of climbing walls with themes so adorable that kids, and even adults, would find them a load of fun to scale.

UPDATED: 13 December 2023 (Updated with latest info, deleted outdated info)

The former T-hall has been rebranded as Outpost Climbing after its partnership with The Rock School! We made a visit this school holiday and as far as its Fun Zone is concerned, not much has changed. I've updated my original post with the latest info.


The main updates are here:

1) You can walk in or make a booking outline

There is 20-participant cap for every 1.5-hour session. You can book online to secure your spot at Outpost Climbing. When doing so, you'll need to make payment for your booking. Otherwise you can walk in but entry would be subjected to capacity limit during the session. We walked in on a weekday during the school holiday and there were about 10 or so climbers at the Fun Zone.


2) A supervising adult is required for children below 13 years old (max ratio of 1 adult to 2 child). Supervising adult will need to pay $10 and can make a booking at Outpost Climbing's website as well. Swapping of adult is not allowed. Climbing adult at $20 (with every paying child).


3) Try to arrive slightly earlier (like 10 mins) before your session to make payment, create an Outpost Climbing account and sign your waiver form if you've never been to Outpost Climbing. Alternatively, you can also create the account before you head down to save some time.


4) The augmented reality wall and monkey boulder wall are included in the entrance fee for the Fun Zone. More on the AR wall in this separate post!


5) The latest entrance fees are as follows:

6) You can wear your own covered shoes in, provided they are clean, have non-marking soles and be reasonably tight-fitting. If not, you can rent their booties at $5 (socks required).


7) Outpost Climbing's opening hours are 2pm-10pm on Monday, Wednesday-Friday; 5pm-10pm on Tuesday; 930am-9pm on Saturday, Sunday and public holidays.


Original post: 31 July 2019

Since my kids' first try at wall climbing somewhere in the east, I'd been searching for a wall climbing venue suitable for kids and more centralised in Singapore in terms of location. So imagine my delight when I came across T-hall.sg when searching online. I was immediately sold by pics of their cheery fun-looking thematic walls. Why, even I felt like having a go.


The thing with going somewhere with high expectations is that you could be setting yourself up for disappointment. But that was definitely not the case at T-hall.sg - their fun zone thematic walls even exceeded our expectations. Here's five reasons why we think T.Hall.sg's fun zone rocks:


1) New and centralised location

T-hall.sg is relatively new having just opened early this year. It's located centrally at 464 Crawford Lane in the Lavender area facing North Bridge Road.


If you are driving, there is a small outdoor car park at Crawford Lane you can park at. It is in fact located next to Block 466 where Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodles is, the 1-star Michelin Bak Chor Mee which attracts super long queues, well, just so you know.


It's closest MRT station would be Lavender Station, which is a 8-10 minutes walk away from the venue.


T-hall.sg is spacious and its bright colours at the climbing fun zone is extremely appealing with its bright colours. Really love the high windows which let natural light!


2) At least 20 thematic walls

Before you're allowed to roam free and climb, there is a safety briefing for both kids and accompanying adults. There are instructors on hand but it’s recommended that there is at least one adult to supervise every two kids. Kids will learn how to clip and unclip their safety harness in the briefing. It’s pretty easy and Little E, aged seven, understood and could do so herself, but close to the end after draining all her energy from the climbing, she did find it a little tough to clip/unclip her harness.


T.hall.sg's thematic wall fun zone is suitable for children from 4 years old and up with minimum weight of 15 kg, even adults can try these out too. We counted at least 20 thematic walls at the fun zone, which is plenty for your kid to try. The walls have varying degrees of difficulties. Big E, age nine, could manage a number of the walls easily and scaled to the top for some like this 'transparent' wall where two can climb opposite each other at the same time...

This racing wall, where you can have a competition with your friends to see who gets to the top first...

But she found the crates and Rubik's Cubes a little difficult, as well as some that had narrower holds.

Only got to the top of the ladder at the tree!

Little E, age seven, took time to warm up, climbing only to half of most of the walls. But she has friends of her age who are really quite gung-ho on climbing walls, so I'm sure some seven-year olds, or even six-year-olds, could scale these wallss.

But somehow she made it looked effortless!

Btw don’t be mistaken from our pictures that it’s this quiet all the time. Yes we practically had the whole place to ourselves but it’s only because we were there on a school-specific holiday. The place gets more crowded on weekends but we understand from the staff there the weekend crowd is still manageable.


3) Fun obstacle course

Another really nice one at the fun zone is this obstacle course called Leap-of-faith which involves stepping up eleven beams. The girls were initially a little daunted, and wasn’t able to climb to the highest beam. But a few tries later, they were going on it again and again.

4) Kids boulder wall

There's a kids boulder wall called Monkey Boulder Wall, which you climb across and don't need harnesses for. This is included in the entrance fee for the Fun Zone.

5) Worthwhile packages

T-hall membership has been discontinued but some member priviledges have been extended for a limited time e.g. complimentary birthday climbs are still applicable if your birthday falls within the 6 months following Outpost Climbing's official opening. More details at Outpost Climbing's website.


Outpost Climbing has a credit system that is worth considering if you plan to go often. Basically, you can purchase credits under your Outpost Climbing account and you can use these credits to pay for your entry. It works out to be cheaper if you pay by credits. (See pricing pic above). We didn't buy credits as credits expire 6 months and we don't go that often. If you think you'll visit often, it's probably something worth considering.


Bonus tips for your trip:

- The outdoor car park at Crawford Lane is quite small and we hear that it's often full. The next nearest and bigger car park would be diagonally across the road at Golden Beach Vista, 13 North Bridge Road.


Find T-hall.sg at 464 Crawford Lane, Singapore 190464 or contact them at 9832 7656.
