Ride the Fastest Zip Line in the World
Zip World Velocity is the longest Zip Line in Europe and officially the fastest anywhere in the world.
Located at Penrhyn Slate Quarry, near Bethesda in North Wales, Zip World have created an adventure seekers paradise with a Zip Line adventure that accelerates you to speeds in excess of 100mph.
If that scares you a little then don’t worry, you don’t need to plunge straight in to the big zip. You can test your nerves on the affectionately know “Little Zipper“, designed to build your confidence before taking on the might of “Velocity“.
Zip World have chosen a great location which provides a stunning backdrop to this already incredible experience.
The Penrhyn Slate Quarry was once the largest slate quarry in the world, and as you plummet over the blue quarry lake the scenery (and not just the force of the wind) will take your breath away.
If you decide that the zip line really isn’t for you then its worth a tour of the quarry on Zip World’s famous red trucks.
On a clear day, from the top of the quarry, the views take you out over Anglesey and beyond….you may even be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the Isle of Man.
