Montreal’s Nuit Blanche will offer glow-in-the-dark night climbing and it’s totally free

Get ready Montrealers, we have an action-packed weekend ahead, thanks to our city’s famous Nuit Blanche taking place on Saturday February 26th.

You can spend your next Saturday night enjoying all that Montréal en Lumière’s most iconic night has to offer, including strolling through museums, watching outdoor light shows, riding the colorful Ferris wheel of Loto-Québec or glow in the dark. escalation!

This activity is offered by the Horizon Roc climbing centre.

“One of the two rooms of the climbing center will be immersed in a magical universe to offer one of the most original activities of the night, combining the world of sport and art under the unique lighting of lasers, “black lights” and headlamps,” reads the event page.

The climbing center allows Montrealers to try out its “addicted park” for free on Saturday evenings.

This event, which takes place from Saturday February 26 to 27, 2022, from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m., is perfect for getting you out of your comfort zone.

You can also climb the walls of the center until the wee hours of the morning at a steady pace.

Horizon Roc suggests wearing all white to enhance the effect of the black lights, so just like the lights, you too can glow in the dark.

You will need to bring your headlamp, but don’t worry if you don’t have one, there will be some at reception for $7.

There will also be two acrobatic performances: one at 9 p.m. and another at 10:30 p.m.

Popcorn will be available on site. Who doesn’t love free food, right?

Be sure to reserve your place in advance on the event page if you want to participate in this unique activity!

Cost: “Accro-parc” and acrobatic performances (Headlamps will be available for purchase at a cost of $7 at reception)

When: La Nuit Blanche de Montréal, the night of February 26 to 27, 2022, from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m.
