Zip World Velocity

Activity Info

  • LL57 4YG


Zip World Velocity is “The Nearest Thing to Flying”! Home to the longest zip line in Europe and the fastest in the world.

This adrenalin fuelled attraction offers visitors a unique experience. Speeds well in excess of 100mph can be reached.

Velocity has two pairs of zip lines.  The experience starts with the ‘Little Zipper’.  This is a great introduction and confidence builder with a maximum speed of around 45mph.  The journey takes riders to the heart of the historic quarry where the off road journey to the Big Zipper commences.

The ride up the mountain in a specialised off road vehicle is magnificent. The Quarry Tour involves a voyage through, what was once, the largest slate quarry in the world. Around every corner is evidence of an industrial past which our professional drivers bring to life and they will astound you with their knowledge and captivating stories.

Where the Quarry Tour ends the Big Zipper begins.  This is a mile long zip line that provides riders with a birds-eye view of the historic quarry and the spectacular North Wales coastline and beyond.

Participants will be supplied with a safety helmet, goggles and a flying suit that is wind and shower resistant.
