Book your ride on Zip World's Tower Coaster

Whether you're with your family or you're an adrenaline junkie looking for your next exhilarating hit, the Tower Coaster is for you. This coaster is the only one of its kind in Europe, where you can weave along the track with a friend at a speed that's totally up to you.

You’ll zoom around the breathtaking Rhigos mountains and soar over the legendary Tower Colliery, enjoying a leisurely ride or holding on for dear life depending on how fast you want to go!

With tunnels, banked corners, dips and peaks, the coaster is an exhilarating way to see Tower Colliery up close. If you have a moment to reflect as you're whizzing around the coaster tracks, just think, this place was once the oldest continuously working deep-coal mine in the UK - simply dripping in wonderful Welsh history!

What does the Tower Coaster experience include?

Three goes on the coaster are included with your ticket and, as you control your speed, you can try to go faster on each run! Being a side-by-side kart, you can take part alongside friends or family, with shared tickets also available for kids between 4 and 8 to ride with an adult.

This experience at Zip World Tower is perfect for those of you who like to keep your feet on the group (and not flying down a zip line through the sky).

Or maybe you want to do both. A day out in Zip World Tower doesn't need to end with one experience. So why not make the most of it?
