The World's Fastest ZIP WIre
Download Event to Calendar

Zip World Velocity at Penrhyn Quarry, Bethesda, is the fastest zip line in the world and the longest in Europe. This adventure takes you on the Little Zipper to build your confidence before you journey up the quarry on their famous red trucks. Take in the stunning views from the Big Top of Velocity, out towards Anglesey with views of the Isle of Man on a clear day. You will then descend down the Big Zipper over the quarry lake often reaching speeds well in excess of 100mph.

What's new with Velocity 2

It's now 4 lines instead of 2! So you can zip with more of your friends/family
It's faster! The top speed is now up to 125mph due to the top of the zip line being moved higher and the bottom being moved lower. They've also redesigned the 'landing' system which means you come in faster!
New 'Skyline' building at the top. This new building means you can watch the others get hooked on the zip line in a nice, warm and dry building, with spectacular views to be seen.
The Little Zipper has moved. It now also goes across the lake, with the big zipper crossing over on top! It starts next to the Adventure Terminal, making the experience more enjoyable.
More accessible way of getting on and off the adventure! You lay on our specially made 'air beds' as your harness gets attached, the bed 'falls away' leaving you suspended. After you fly across the quarry, the line lowers you to the ground gently. 
New 'Stealth' Trollies. The trolley is what you're attached to that flies you across the quarry. These new trollies are quieter which is more environmentally friendly.
