Moor. Mountain. Sky. We’re fond of all three, and North Wales has all three in abundance. Part of the behemoth that is the Zip World series of attractions within North Wales, Zip World Titan reigns supreme as the first (and only) 4-person zip line in Europe – as well as the longest zip zone in the world. Perhaps you’re a fan of Zip World Velocity but want the terror to be a group event? Zip World Titan has you covered. Even better, it’s at the Bethesda site which means that getting to and from your hotel in Betws y Coed is a doddle.
The Ultimate group zipping experience, Zip World Titan offers up to four people the same kind of exhilaration that Velocity offers, though from a seated position. You’re afforded spectacular views over the Blaenau Ffestiniog valleys as you and your friends or family co-zip, ensuring an experience that will last in the memories of your co-zippers for quite some time.
Each rider at Zip World Titan travels downward over 2,000m over the site of the former slate quarry, and it’s certainly an experience. There’s a total of three wires for each rider (Alfa, Bravo and Charlie) with a short walk inbetween them.
Zip World is both professionally run and very safe – the more cautious among us when it comes to life and limb will be happy to hear that the activity of throwing yourself off a very high quarry is indeed very safe – you’re given a full safety demonstration by Zip World’s fully qualified and specially trained friendly and well-organised staff. You’re also locked onto the wire by staff members, with other members of staff checking each other’s work as standard.
If you’re after an experience of zip lining across the North Wales area, leaving you exhausted, exhilarated, and blown away- then Zip World is for you. Just be sure to book soon! As it’s very nature, Zip World Titan is indeed weather dependant, which means that it’s on a time limit until the winter time when it is scheduled to close until next year. Why not give it a try before it does?
