ZipWorld in Bethesda, Snowdonia, North WalesPublished on 5 Nov 2013 by Gwion Llwyd
For his 70th birthday present we decided to buy my dad a ticket for Europe’s longest zip wire at ZipWorld in Bethesda, here in Snowdonia, North Wales.
Once we looked into it, my mum, our two daughters and I decided we should probably come along to keep him company. Louise kindly volunteered to hold our bags and look after the car. (Insert chicken noises here.)
So yesterday, 3 generations of the Llwyd family drove up to Penrhyn Quarry just south of Bangor for a truly remarkable experience. I hope you enjoy our video.
