We booked this holiday so I could do this zip wire ride . This attraction has had a lot of updates since last year for the better. The only let down was the photo side of things . On the web site it says about hiring the Garmin head cameras for £19 plus a refundable deposit of £200 pound this is not so now you pay no deposit . I decided to get a photo at the end of the experience using their own photo system, well do not do this . I search through a lot of shots on the screen and there was only 1 shot of me and to be honest it was rubbish . I asked about the photos and they said the use a private photographer now who stands outside and just takes shoots of people coming down. I was very disappointed about this photo as it was not clear and not good . Lucky enough my wife got some shots of me so not all was lost. With all the money they have spent you would have thought they would have installed an automated system like they have at most main attractions now. Good day other wise met some lovely people and we all had a good time and the weather was brilliant.

Hi Peter, Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience on site. We haven't worked with Garmin for several years now since 2019, Nor have we used a photographer since then. We work with the Revl system now which records your personal experience with a camera facing you as the participant so it captures all your reactions throughout your Velocity2 flight. The Revl footage is a great way to share your experience with friends and loved ones. You receive a dynamic edited version, an unedited version with your whole flight and several stills taken from the footage. For Velocity2 you get all this for £15 and its all sent directly to your email, for your convenience. If you'd like to join us again on one of our other unique adventures, please call the booking centre on 01248 601 444 - and one of the team will walk you through to your next adventure filled day. Don't forget we have 3 sites in North Wales and 1 in South Wales. Aaron

All the staff were amazing - very attentive, thorough, welcoming and professional. The Zip Wire is a must do ;-) It is brilliant, very well organised. No need to be too nervous about the ride, just do it!

Hi Kev, Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience on site. We pride ourselves on customer service, so it's great to hear that you found the instructors warm and friendly as well as safety conscious and professional. Velocity2 is a must do for those looking for the ultimate test of your white-knuckle credentials. Now that you have taken flight and soared over Penrhyn Quarry why not head underground and take on Caverns - A challenging underground course, Caverns is a one-of-a-kind experience that takes up to 3 hours and will leave you exhilarated and drained in equal measure. Set in a historic slate mine, the various nooks, crannies, tunnels and chasms have been brought back to life with 13 zip lines, as well as via ferrata, rope bridges, tightropes and more, to push your bravery and endurance to the ultimate test. To book, please call the booking centre on 01248 601 444 - and one of the team will walk you through to your next adventure filled day. Aaron

Great adventures, however While in the restaurant i witnessed a senior member of staff bullying another member of staff in front of staff and customer. i have complained as what I witness was horrible and seemed to be accepted by the staff member and the other staff. I would like to heard from others who may have witnessed or experienced bulling at this company.

Absolutely lovely morning at Zip World. We were looked after and safety checked and felt very happy and secure at all times. It was absolutely brilliant. Going back for more when we next visit Menai. Speeds out of this world and a truly memorable morning, not one but two zip rides and both were brilliant. I was so excited and loved every minute, definitely a thrilling fun place and cost well worth it for what you get. Would highly recommend. Im 65 and didn't feel too old, you've got to do it!

Hi Mona, Thank you for taking the time to write about your Velocity2 flight over on the Penrhyn Quarry site. It's great to hear you enjoyed soaring through the sky's, a lot of our customers don't realise that there is a training zipline affectionately named "little zipper" before you actually go on to take flight on Velocity2 its self. We would love to have you on site again, now that you have taken on Velocity2 why not have another shot of adrenaline and take on Plummet2 - The world’s first tandem drop experience, Plummet 2 is an incredible 100 foot tower with a trapdoor drop that’s the ultimate test of your white-knuckle credentials. As you stand on the trapdoor, you’ll enjoy unparalleled views out over the Conwy valley (if you’re able to given the expectation of the impending drop!). To book, Please call the booking centre on 01248 601 444 - and one of the team will walk you through to your next adventure filled day. Aaron

Absolutely incredible experience! Titan 2 is without doubt the best zip line in the world. The views as you fly through the air are second to none and the staff are so helpful, supportive and professional. The harnesses are cross checked, the fixtures to the line are cross checked, you just feel super safe. I loved it so so much!
