What else is on at Zip World - Penrhyn Quarry ?

Ride the fastest zip wire in the world with Velocity

How's this for a new way to get the adrenaline pumping: fly 500ft high at speeds of 125mph on Zip World's thrilling Velocity!

The zipline, near Bethesda in North Wales, is the longest in Europe with over an entire mile for you to whizz down.

Pull on your warmest clothes, your red flying suit, adjust your goggles and helmet, feel the wind at the top of the quarry...and get ready for the flight of your life.

Take a deep breath as you're strapped into the Velocity2 zipwire, hear staff counting down before your release. Suddenly you'll feel your body zipping down the mountain so quickly - you'll feel as free as a high-flying bird!

Seeing the view is an unforgettable experience. It will sooth your soul to pass over the shimmering blue lake beneath and catch the sunlight hitting the summit of the extraordinary mountains. Once you get to the end, you'll want to do it all over again.

And don't worry, the team will be on hand to give you a safety briefing before they let you loose.
