Regina losing rock-climbing wall

The writing is on the wall for a once-popular tourist attraction in Regina.

Science Centre closing attraction Jan. 5

The writing is on the wall for a once-popular tourist attraction in Regina.

People have been climbing the rock wall at the Saskatchewan Science Centre in Regina for 12 years, but that will end on Jan. 5.

The centre has decided to retire the wall to make way for something new.

Among the reasons is that it wasn't making enough money, executive director Sandy Baumgartner said.

As well, only a relatively small percentage of people who came to the centre used the wall.

"We thought it was time for a change to provide some opportunities that would meet the needs and interests of a broader audience, particularly a family audience," Baumgartner said.

What will replace the wall hasn't been determined yet.
