ZipWorld Velocity set in Penryn Slate mine, North Wales is Europe's longest zipline activity.
4 people fly simultaneously upto 125 mph!
The historic slate mine is the venue to enjoy the thrills as we take you on a ride of a lifetime on two ziplines, the first a meagre 800m of torpedo speed down the Little Zipper before taking the 20 minute guided tour up to the launch pad of the 1600m Big Zipper. The speed test was initially 80mph and now they say 100mph... Whatever speed you fly at, the acceleration at launch is incredible and at an altitude of 700ft over the lake, the most amazing view (if you have your eyes open!).
We kit you up in a very snazzy orange one piece, helmet, harness and goggles. Zip World Snowdonia is a guided adventure experience that lasts for 2 hours.
Participants will be supplied with a flying suit to wear that is wind and shower proof. Helmets and goggles will also be supplied. It is essential to bring warm clothing and a waterproof coat (and ideally waterproof trousers). Footwear must be fitted securely. Walking boots are ideal. Harnesses contain a secure pocket for wallets and small cameras.
The zip lining experience requires very little physical effort on the part of participants; however, an ability to walk 200 metres on a track, wearing a harness, is necessary. Zip World is able to offer the experience to people with a wide range of disabilities given appropriate notice.
For most people, the activity is psychologically challenging! However, participation in the Little Zipper first provides some useful progression.
