Attraction Information

Zip World Penrhyn Quarry has the longest zip wire in Europe and it's the nearest thing to flying you're ever likely to get! A much more prolonged experience than the kids will ever have enjoyed to date and something they (and you) will never forget!
The Velocity Zip consists of 4 specially constructed and spectacular zip lines, on both of which you are forward mounted, so it's like being Superman! All 4 lines go side by side, so you can race against your family to see who reaches the end first. With speeds of over 100mph, travelling 700ft above the mountain lake, you'd best be ready for the ride of a lifetime! This epic adventure lasts 2 to 3 hours, so it's very sensibly for over 10s only.
Covid-19 Update - Zip World will be re-opening Velocity 2 from July 6th, and Quarry Karts from July 20th. The Penrhyn Quarry Tour and BIG RED and remain closed until further notice.
