The New Adventure At Zip WorldPublished on 22 Mar 2017 by Gwion Llwyd
The 10th of May sees the opening of the new adventure at Zip World; The Fforest Coaster… It’s another first of its kind in the UK and again, Snowdonia is the launch pad. Just another feather in the Snowdonia cap when it comes to offering unique and new to market adventure experiences….
Based on the traditional toboggan, the Fforest Coaster runs on rails making it a much faster experience. The ride is over 1000m long (over 1/2 a mile), through the stunning Betws-Y-Coed woodland where you can reach speeds of upto 40km per hour. A 500m uplift takes you to the top and then you decend from there, flying through the forest at exhilarting speeds.
Unlike traditional rollercoasters, you can control your speed so for those who want the full thrill, they can go brake free whilst those who are not feeling so brave have the choice to slow things down!
Open to all ages, it’s the talk of the town and certainly one of the things you will want to put on your wish list for 2107.
Zipworld opened in 2013 bringing us the longest Zipline in Europe and the fastest in the world. 2014 bought us Bounce Below which saw the first ever trampolines suspended from inside an excavated cavern. Since then, they have introduced the Zip World Caverns (the greatest underground adventure), Fforest Zip Safari (a zipline through the forest), Plummet (a mini bungee jump), Skyride (Europes highest 5 seater swing) and Treetop Nets (giant nets suspended from the trees to run around in).
It’s fair to say this is a one stop adventure, adrenaline fulled shop!
