Zip World Fforest has a range of adventures for nearly all the family! Treetop nets lets you bounce in the trees to your hearts content, fly through the trees with Zip Safari, leap from the summit on Plummet or soar on Skyride. This year brings a new adventure, Fforest Coaster, the UKs only Alpine Coaster!

Zip World Slate Caverns brings you the largest Zip Zone in Europe.
Titan is the first of its kind, the only 4 person zip line in Europe, where riders reach speeds up to 70mph over moor, mountain and mine.

HOWEVER the choice of things to do doesn’t stop there...

Also at Zip World Slate Caverns will also find the world’s first subterranean playground of its kind, home to Zip World Bounce Below and Zip World Slate Caverns!

Zip World Bounce Below: Picture giant bouncy nets, walkways, slides suspended in a slate cavern hidden underground and you’ll have the right idea.

Zip World Caverns is a unique subterranean experience set in a vast series of historic mine chambers and associated tunnels. It consists of a number of zip lines interspersed with adventure ropes course elements (e.g. rope bridges); tunnels and stretches of via ferrata (Italian term literally translated as “iron road” designed to assist soldiers crossing precipitous mountain passes). It involves a remarkable and adventurous journey through in an environment that has been inaccessible for nearly 200 years.

The surreal experience of these subterranean activities is unlike anything seen before.
