Join us for some fun at our fantastic Scrambles soft play with:

  • separate areas for babies, toddlers and juniors
  • lots of seating and great visibility

There are separate areas for babies (aged 0-18 months), toddlers (1 year up to 3 years) and bigger kids too (from 4-10 years old) so they will be ready for the real rock face in no time!

As a venue, EICA:Ratho is contemporary, yet timeless, making it a distinctly different and inspirational destination for events. With the original quarry walls running through many of the events spaces, and with breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside, this is a truly unique venue.

We offer a unique and inspiring conference and events venue with capacity for up to 1,800 delegates in the main climbing arena and a selection of rooms and suites offering quality meeting space for groups of various sizes.

If you’re from S1 to age 15, you can still use EICA's gym. In our NRG Zone sessions, you can learn to use the gym with expert instructors in a structured and safe environment. Once you’ve completed a minimum of five sessions, you can become accredited in our gyms to work out with minimal supervision.

If you’re not interested in doing this, you can do one of our Youth Circuit classes, which you can drop into without getting accreditation.
