North Wales is now recognised as the UK’s leading adventure destination and with its natural playground of mountains and forests and beautiful coastline it offers so many daring and exciting exploits that you can discover how bold and thrill-seeking you really are!
Let this week’s Discovery Article unearth your courageous streak with our guide of exhilarating land activities:
Fly like a bird
Zip World Velocity 2 is the world’s fastest and Europe’s longest zip line which takes adventure seekers on a head first hurtle across a disused slate quarry at up to 125mph at heights of 500ft! If you dare to open your eyes you’ll be rewarded, weather permitting, with breathtaking views across North Wales, the Menai Strait and Anglesey.
Bounce for Joy
Bounce Below is an all-weather subterranean playground located in a disused slate cavern which offers a net adventure with a series of giant trampolines, walkways, slides and tunnels which will have you playing, rolling, jumping and bouncing as you navigate your way through. Twice the size of St Paul’s Cathedral, Bounce Below is guaranteed fun for all the family.
Zip with Friends
Zip World Titan is the only four person zip line in Europe which means you can share the thrills and fun with your friends or family as you zip along at 70mph over moor, mountain and mine. Unlike Zip World Velocity where you’re lying down at Titan you’re sitting and can relax as zip along 3 exhilarating zip lines.
Down in the Depths
There are two adventures to be enjoyed under ground!
Zip World Caverns offers you an Indiana Jones-esque venture with its unique underground course in a disused slate mine that includes the world’s largest fully underground zip line as well as rope bridges, iron paths, tunnels and monkey bars!
Go Below is another sensational activity attraction located in caverns which was described by The Sunday Times as the “scariest assault course in the UK”. There are three adventures to choose from so this is the perfect exploit for the brave, very brave and for those that want the ultimate experience! Activities include zip lines, climbing a vertical shaft, boating across a lake, scaling a waterfall, abseiling down to the deepest point in the UK and traversing over an abyss.
Discover your inner Tarzan or Jane
Zip World Fforest in Snowdonia offers a choice of adventures high up in the trees! There’s a zip safari that takes you through the canopy of the trees on zip lines and rope courses, a powerfan tree parachute, Europe’s highest giant swing, a toboggan run and trampolines suspended 60ft up in the trees. This really is an open-air adventure for all the family.
A Head for Heights
If you’ve a head for heights then experience abseiling 100 metres vertically above the sea, rock climbing and/or sea level traversing and scrambling on Llandudno’s famous limestone promontory that rises 679 feet above sea level with Great Orme Vertical.
