We have been wanting to try out the zip wires at Zip World for ages and finally took the plunge at the weekend. The sun was shining so a perfect day for strapping into a harness and flinging yourself across a quarry in North Wales. It took us about 1:30 to drive from our holiday cottage in Llanarmon in North Wales (available for rent here) to Blaenau Ffestiniog.
It is weather dependent, so if too windy it will not run. However they will let you re-book for another day if you have booked up-front.
The day we went it was not too busy, but it was the weekend after the bank holiday. I suspect if you turned up in the summer you may struggle to buy tickets on the day.
Great onsite cafe and also picnic tables if you want to take your own lunch.
Blaenau is only a five minute drive away and it has various options for food.
Plenty of other walks and things to do in the area if you want to make a day of it.
Bounce Below is at the same site and joint tickets can be purchased at a saving.
You can hire cameras to film your flight.
There are age, height and weight restrictions – so check them out before you book.
