Infinity Climber

A playground inspired by differential calculus dangles from the ceiling of the Liberty Science Center. 

The first suspended climbing space of its kind, the Infinity Climber is a cantilevered climbing space of 64 petal-like platforms encased in 19 miles of hand-threaded wire mesh suspended 35 feet above the floor. 

Luckey Climbers’ structures blends play structures and sculptural works of art, working with scientific principles. The Neural Climber in Philadelphia, for instance, mimics the synaptic connections of the mind. 

The Infinity Climber has minimal head room and no reach greater than 20 inches. This restriction keeps you crawling or crouching, which actually eliminates the chance of falling. Its sinuous pathways, which were reportedly based on differential calculus, deviate and merge to offer many ways for both kids and adults alike to explore the concept of relativism within a given space. 

Know Before You Go

The Infinity Climber entrance is located on the second floor of the Liberty Science Center.
