Rock Jungle Fitness & Climbing

10247 184 St NW
780-454-7625

One of the first things people tell us when they visit Rock Jungle Fitness is “wow, it’s big!” With over 12,000 vertical square feet of walls here in the Jungle there’s always space to climb. We have two floors of dedicated bouldering walls, 33 top rope belay stations, and a dedicated lead climbing area.

But, all that space doesn’t mean a thing if it’s just the same old routes to climb. That’s why we have a route setting team that is constantly changing things up to keep all that climbable space fresh and exciting. Our route setters do a great job of putting up creative and fun routes for climbers of all ability levels. With new routes & boulder problems set weekly there is always something new to try!

If you’ve still got energy after all that climbing there’s even more available to you here at RJF. Rock Jungle Fitness has one of the largest and most well equipped CrossFit gyms in the country, so you can work those important opposition muscles after your climb.

To really round out your workout come in on your off climbing days and limber up with a yoga class in our amazing Yoga Studio.

We built Rock Jungle Fitness to meet the needs of every climber. Come in today to check it out!

Two teams face off against each other in a game similar to dodgeball. Run to the centre of the arena, collect your arrows and have fun shooting them at the other team. Careful to avoid being hit yourself! With obstacles to hide behind and towers to climb you can develop your own strategy to win the battle.

We have a variety of game modes and you will experience anywhere from 4 to 7 of them during your session. If you have ever played dodgeball you will find some of them familiar. Our most simple elimination style game has two teams face off on one half of the court and try to eliminate all players on the opposing team by hitting them with arrows.

We also have turncoat where a player hit with an arrow will join the opposing team. In every archer for themselves you are free to switch sides but can only shoot archers on the opposite side of the arena.

Vikings: Beyond the Legend

April 18 – October 20, 2019

Row a Viking ship, wield a sword and feed your curiosity for the explorers, traders, farmers and artisans who changed the course of history. Vikings: Beyond the Legend is the largest touring exhibition of Viking artifacts in the world. It’s an immersive experience surrounding 650 artifacts ranging from exotic jewels to three Viking warships, including the 37-metre Roskilde 6, the longest Viking warship ever found, featuring approximately 1,000 year-old wooden planks and metal supports showing the ship’s original lines. Striking multimedia and 11 interactive stations bring this historic exhibition to life.

Highlights include:

  • The Roskilde 6, using 25% of the original, preserved planks
  • The full-size, six-metre replica ship Joanna, built with Viking Age techniques and materials
  • A “ghost ship” sculpture of hanging iron replica rivets from a burial ship
  • A full-scale replica of the Jelling Rune Stone often called Denmark’s birth certificate
  • Unique artifacts like “Thor’s hammer,” Ulfberht swords and the Hevring Flak rudder
  • Elaborate jewellery and coins
  • Hands-on activities highlighting traditional clothing, the rune alphabet and Viking games
  • Interactive components including an opportunity to pick up a precise replica of a Viking Age sword to feel its weight and balance
  • An augmented reality rowing experience that lets visitors test their ability to maintain the rowing cadence of a Viking ship

Warning: Strobe lights are used in this exhibition.

Human History Hall

Sharing stories of who we are and where we came from.

Who are we? Where do we come from? Discover the inspiring personal stories of Alberta’s unique, resourceful, and resilient people in our Human History galleries.

Experience our province through the eyes of Indigenous people – their innovative use of the natural world for survival in ancient times, their artistry and spirituality, and the tenacity with which they kept their culture alive during colonization. Marvel at a 1,600-year-old roasting pit in which Blackfoot people cooked a feast. Learn more about the intricate floral beading techniques used by Métis people, and diverse materials Indigenous people used to construct canoes for water travel. Bear witness to the poignant, often difficult narratives that come as a result of the First Nations’ contact with European settlers.

Natural History Hall

Step into the great outdoors at the Royal Alberta Museum

Natural History celebrates the landscapes around us, from the rocks beneath our feet, to the fossils that record ancient life, to the many animals and plants that make their home in Alberta today.

Hike through alpine meadows and windswept grasslands, up rocky precipices and into dank caves. Detailed, lifelike dioramas offer an intimate glimpse into the world of Alberta wildlife, from black bears and black widow spiders to pelicans and pronghorn. Along the journey, take in floor-to-ceiling vistas of our province’s many distinct natural environments.

Get up close to life-size replica skeletons of the giant sloths, mastodons, and sabre-toothed cats that roamed our landscape during the Ice Age. Discover how ice sheets sculpted the land we know today. Explore the diversity of rocks that form the landscape. We share stories that begin thousands, millions, even billions of years ago with our glittering collection of gems and minerals from Alberta, around the world, and even outer space.
