Overview

Zip World Snowdonia is the longest zip wire in the northern hemisphere and is the fastest in the world! Reaching speeds of up to 100 mph, it is also a guided adventure experience that lasts for approx 2 hours, and is located in the most dramatic of settings - Penrhyn Quarry which is nestled amongst the mountains of north Wales. Zip World is a first for the UK, the site contains two specially constructed and amazing zip lines, the 'little zipper' first will take you down to the bottom of the quarry, reaching speeds of up to 40mph, you will then pick up your specialised vehicle for a magnificent quarry tour in what was once the largest slate quarry in the world, before then zip lining back down over a mile, looking down at what was until the 1950s the largest man-made hole on the planet. Experience the nearest thing to flying today!!!!!

if you want to stay and watch there is a new building that does coffee and snacks which was very good. Nearby you have the small town of Bethesda and also a few miles further there is Bangor.

I agree. I did both but if I could only do one I'd pick Velocity (head first at speed). Great experience and fab staff.

My experience was bought as a gift - but not through Zip World. When I was ready to do the experience I rang Zip World and just gave them the company name on the voucher and the voucher number. Easy as that.
