Founded in 1998 and headquartered in Sofia, Bulgaria, Walltopia is a world-leading manufacturer of artificial climbing structures.
“Our core business is the design and production of climbing walls,” explains Mariya Vasileva, Chief Marketing Officer of Walltopia. “We offer indoor and outdoor artificial climbing structures for different facilities, including gyms, schools, universities, hotels, shopping centres and recreational areas.”
As a result, Walltopia now exports to more than 50 different countries and has offices in the USA, UK, Canada, Germany, Austria, Russia and Asia Pacific.
As well as the climbing walls, the firm designs and manufactures a wide range of active entertainment attractions. These include ropes courses (Ropetopia), interactive climbing walls for children and young adults (Fun Walls), obstacle courses (Ninja Course), and a new ride (Rollglider) which, Maria says, “...combines the feeling of zip-lining, hang-gliding and rollercoaster riding”.
Mariya puts the company’s success down to the team’s unrelenting drive. “We seek challenges and set trends. Innovation has always been our driving force,” she says.
“We deliver complete solutions for customers – our services include design, engineering, manufacturing, delivery, assembling and staff training.”

Mariya believes that climbing as a sport will grow towards becoming as popular as fitness and cross fit – and that active entertainment will keep growing too.
“The industry’s growth is an opportunity for us to become one of the key players in active entertainment, just like we are in climbing,” says Mariya. “We will also be pushing even harder toward innovation, which has proven to be one of the drivers of our company’s success.”
