You are here: > Fastest, Highest and Longest Zip Wire

[column col=”1/2″] If you ever wondered what it was like for Clark Kent, now is your chance, no telephone box needed! The new Zip World in Bethesda, near Bangor in North Wales, sees visitors fly through the air above panoramic views over the mountains of Snowdonia. Flying for over a mile at speeds of up to 75mph makes Zip World the fastest, highest, and longest zip wire in the Northern Hemisphere. Located in the world’s largest old slate quarry, Zip World is a first for the UK and will take visitors over 700ft through the air above a mountain lake with views to the Isle of Anglesey and even the Isle of Man on a clear day. The journey starts at ground level with guests being collected in ex-military vehicles and taken high up into the Welsh mountains on a three hour fully guided interactive exploration of the area with commentary. Adventurous visitors will then get the chance to ride the mile long zip wire and fly through the air back to ground level.
