The UAE’s ultimate indoor adventure hub CLYMB Abu Dhabi hosted a life-changing flight experience for a female guest by coordinating with her significant other to set up a surprise marriage proposal in the world’s largest indoor skydiving wind tunnel.

The romantic moment took place when the groom popped the question to his bride-to-be using a handwritten signboard that she read whilst flying.

The team at CLYMB Abu Dhabi helped set up the unforgettable proposal, from positioning the unsuspecting female guest to read the sign, and capturing the moment the groom went down on one knee and proposed to her.

The new sports and leisure attraction on Yas Island is awarded with two Guinness World Records titles for the world’s largest indoor skydiving wind tunnel at 10 meters (32 feet) in diameter and 54.6 m (179.2ft) high and the world’s tallest indoor artificial climbing wall reaching 42.16 m (138ft).

Launched on November 29, 2019, CLYMB™ Abu Dhabi provides guests with a unique experience, taking them to record-breaking heights. The two attractions are suitable for visitors of all ages and skills, with highly trained instructors taking visitors through safety tips and techniques before introducing flying and climbing techniques. With five climbing walls of varying degrees of height and difficulty, CLYMB Abu Dhabi is suitable for both beginners and experts alike, in addition to the largest indoor skydiving flight chamber.

The two titles add CLYMB™ Abu Dhabi to the list of record-breaking attractions on Yas Island.

Guests are encouraged to play their part in these safety measures by wearing facemasks at all times, sanitizing hands regularly and choosing contactless payment at all outlets. Guest services attendants will be stationed throughout to assist guests and answer any questions.
