Smaller than the South Bay location, but it does have a room for yoga classes, which is also kind of small. The yoga class on Sundays 6:30-7:30p is VERY RELAXING. The parking lot is directly outside and the atmosphere of this long beach location is so therapeutic.

I took my niece and nephew here so it's a great place for kids. They train you how to safely secure and anchor the kids. Great great great

Awesome staff, fun climbs, and great vibes all around make Hangar 18 Long Beach one of the best Hangar 18 gyms by far! I've been bouldering and top roping for years now and I always find myself going to Hangar 18 because they are one of the most affordable climbing gyms in SoCal. Some of the Hangar locations are better than others due to overall maintenance and staff. This location is definitely a lot more well maintained, and is also one of the newest locations. The crash pads are thick and don't look like they are falling apart. There's an even number of top roping and bouldering areas, and the overall layout of the climbing gym is very welcoming. It feels a lot more open and less claustrophobic when there's more people around... My friends and I came to utilize our monthly membership that was ending and I finally convinced them to take a belaying class, since they're the only been doing bouldering. The staff were more than happy to assist us and let us use the rental equipment. They were patient and really helpful in walking us through each step, with adequate time to practice tying the figure 8 knot and appropriate usage of the Grigri top roping device. After top roping for about an hour we did some bouldering and the other members of the gym were so supportive and helpful in helping us through certain routes we were stuck at. Everyone seems to treat each other like family here which is really awesome. If I didn't live so far away I think I'd definitely become a regular here!

Very nice staff. Unfortunately no AC so it became unbearable with this summer heat. Went for a birthday party.

Decent sized. Wouldn't say big at all. No AC. But climbing you can do!
