Attraction Information

Zip World Slate Caverns is home to crazy adventures for the whole family above and below ground. Kick off your action-packed day out with a ride on Zip World Titan - the largest zip zone in Europe. It’s a 4-person zip line, so you can race your kids (ages 7+) over the stunning landscape. Get strapped in on the Alpha, Bravo and Charlie lines and get ready for some serious thrills!

Then, it’s time to go below ground and take on the Caverns (ages 10+) - a unique underground course in a slate mine disused for over 200 years. You’ll fly over 11 zip wires, traverse rope bridges and climb the monkey bars in an exhilarating 3-hour challenge . Don’t fancy having a go at the monkey bars? There's an alternative route!

Underground you’ll also find Bounce Below - a one-of-a-kind subterranean playground for kids aged 7+, where you little ones will be playing, sliding, bouncing and jumping in a cathedral-sized cavern.
