Velocity, Zip World

Velocity, Zip World

Velocity is the longest zip line in Europe and the fastest in the world! A twin zip wire a mile long (1600m)! Boasting speeds in excess of 100mph – The Nearest Thing to Flying!

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 into the heart of the historic quarry where the off road journey to the Big Zipper commences.

The journey up the mountain in a specialised off road vehicle is magnificent. The Quarry Tour involves a journey through, what was once, the largest slate quarry in the world. Around every corner is evidence of an industrial past which the 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.

Velocity flies over Penrhyn Quarry, Bethesda, Bangor, Gwynedd, North Wales. From Manchester / Liverpool direction, leave the A55 at junction 11 and follow signs for Bethesda and then Zip World.
