Zip World won international acclaim when it opened Zip World Velocity at Penrhyn Quarry, Bethesda in March 2013. Offering riders the closest experience a human being can get to skydiving without actually leaping out of a plane. Now upgraded to the thrill-seeking Velocity 2, it involves flying head-first, for just under a mile, reaching speeds of up to and sometimes over 100mph down a mountain and then straight over a cliff, 500ft above the quarry lake with spectacular views as far out as Ireland. No sooner than Velocity was opened construction began on the next adventure. Zip World now offer besides Velocity 2, Quarry Karts, Big Red, Quarry Tour, Titan, Caverns, Bounce Below, Zip Safari, Plummet 2, Skyride, Treetop Nets, Tree Hoppers, Fforest Coaster, Phoenix and the NEW Tower Coaster recently launched. Phoenix and the Tower Coaster, Zip World Tower is the 4th Zip World site to open, and is the 1st to be situated in south Wales. Nestled in the Rhigos mountain range, and boasting stunning panoramic views, this adventure hub is situated at the old Tower Colliery coal mining site, and had created a new lease of life for this historic and widely-loved base. Phoenix is the world’s fastest seated zip line, with 4 parallel lines in 2 separate zip zones. This zip line will see you flying across the Welsh countryside. The Tower Coaster is the only of its kind in Europe, boasting a side-by-side kart, making it possible for two people to ride at once. Enjoy the beautiful facilities and refreshments at Tower’s Adventure Terminal, where you can check-in, kit-up, grab a bite to eat, and enjoy the wonderfully restored Colliery site, where old meets new.
