Youth Influencers Recommend Indoor Activities to Stay Out of the Cold

Travel Penticton’s Youth Influencers program aims to create a new generation of tourism ambassadors, by getting our local students directly involved in social media and digital marketing.  Students are learning new skills, participating in a variety of activities and being given the opportunity to share their personal views and experience about our City.

Hoodoo Adventures
Want to get some exercise, but it is too cold outside? Well, Hoodoo Adventures is a great place to go by yourself or with friends and family! Hoodoo Adventures is located on 131 Ellis St, in Penticton, BC.
Hoodoo Adventures is open all week from 9:00am till 7:00pm!
I personally like climbing the harder or most challenging levels, however they have climbing levels for all abilities!  It is a really nice feeling when you finally complete one of the routes especially the challenging ones! If you really like to climb you can get a year round pass or a monthly pass! Also, On Friday’s it is Youth night and it is cheaper for youth to attend! At Hoodoo Adventures there activities for the whole family! There are also some really cool structures where you can work on your upper body strength, so you can get stronger just by having fun!
There is a ping pong table and large sized Jenga. Overall indoor rock climbing at Hoodoo Adventures is very fun, entertaining and something the whole family can participate in!  For more information go to
