Attraction Information

Zip World Penrhyn Quarry in North Wales, once the largest slate quarry in the world, is an adventurous attraction for those who love the thrill of outdoor activities and feel the adrenaline course through their body! You'll have an exhilarating experience no matter what activity you choose! And of course, you'll be accompanied by stunning views of the Snowdonia mountain range and more. 

Are you ready for the most surreal experience of your life?

Things To Do

Velocity 2
Fancy zooming down the longest zip wire in Europe? What about the fastest zip wire in the world? It's the nearest thing to flying you're ever likely to get! The amazing experience consists of 4 specially constructed and spectacular parallel 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.

It'll probably be one of the most fun experiences the kids will ever have enjoyed to date and something they (and you) will never forget!

Quarry Karts
If you love to speed and zoom over rugged landscapes, then this adrenaline activity is something for you. Did you know it's the only mountain cart track experience in the UK? With three wheels on a 3km slate track, you can whip out all your tricks on an extra-stable kart. Push your driving ability to the limits as you swerve around a series of obstacles like tunnels, chicanes and banked corners! It's a must-add to your family activity days, especially if you have older kids because it's only suitable for those who are 15+. 

Quarry Flyer
Take to the skies as you take on the Quarry Flyer and have a fab time soaring above everyone else. With this dual zip line, you'll fly 110 metres through the air and a further 90m to the ground. With plenty of dips to pick up speed for those who are adventurous enough! The incredible zip lines are perfect for couples, friends and part of a family day out. Incredible views? Check. A zip world experience to remember? Of course. 

Additional activities like the Penrhyn Quarry tour are also available for those looking to wrap up their amazing time with an opportunity to learn about the historic slate quarry.
No matter your experience level, you can enjoy an adventure experience like no other. And feel accomplished after! 

Food & Drink 
Need to refuel that lost energy? Head to Bwyty Blondin Restaurant for some super scrumptious food. Tuck into full English breakfasts, moreish wraps, tasty sweet treats and snacks and refreshments at this modern bistro-style venue.

They also have plenty of outdoor picnic benches and outside seating if you wish to bring your own food!
