Zip World Velocity
Zip World Velocity is the longest zip line in Europe at a mile long and the fastest in the World with riders exceeding 100mph at heights of 500ft, but it’s just got bigger and better with Velocity 2. It now has 4 lines instead of 2 so you can zip with your friends and/or family, and it’s also faster with a top speed now of up to 125mph so this is the nearest experience you’ll get to flying!
With two pairs of zip lines, your experience starts with the “Little Zipper” which with maximum speeds of 45mph is a good introduction and confidence builder for the “Big Zipper”.
You’re then taken up the mountain in a specialised off-road vehicle giving you time to soak up the magnificent views of North Wales before reaching the Big Zipper at the top and your descent over the largest slate quarry, now disused, in the world.
Participants who must be over the age of 10 are supplied with a safety helmet, goggles and a flying suit that is wind and shower resistant.
Pre-booking is essential, and the experience takes approximately 2 hours but you need to arrive at least 30 minutes before your scheduled booking time. Please note this experience is weather dependent so please do check the ride status on the website before leaving the hotel.
