If you’re an adrenaline junkie and heading to North Wales, you must visit Zip World at Penryhn Quarry. Situated in what was once known as the largest slate quarry in the world, it is now home to Velocity 2, the fastest zip line in the world! If you’re brave enough to have a go, you can experience soaring 500 meters above the lake of the quarry. One of the most adrenaline fuelled activities you can imagine!

If you simply want to come along and watch those that are brave enough to have a go on the zipline, you are more than welcome. You have the choice of the viewing platform, or the viewing area where you can bring along your own picnic. Or head to Blondin Restaurant and enjoy some bistro style dishes which are locally sourced. You could also book yourself on to the Quarry Tour, where you will climb onboard one of the trucks which will take you around the quarry. You will learn about the history of the quarry and enjoy taking in the breathtaking panoramic views.

Looking for adventure but a bit more low key than the zipline, why not have a go on the Quarry Karts! The UK’s only mountain cart experience, you will enjoy the adrenaline of the unique dirt tracks alongside the quarry whilst soaking up the Snowdonia mountain vista.

For those of you traveling with your pets, you have come to the right place. Whilst you are embarking on the activity of your choice, your furry friends can be checked in to Pet Stop where they will be looked after by experienced and professional staff. A mini break for all the family!
