Zip World Caverns - Llechwedd Slate Caverns
Zip World Caverns is the world’s largest fully underground zip line course!
Zip World Caverns – a unique subterranean adventure playground – brought another world first to North Wales in May 2015.
The huge slate cavern – which could house 75 double decker buses – will offer
visitors the chance to experience a gripping journey through a vast series of
historic mine chambers.
Zip World Caverns takes its daring adventurers on a number of thrilling zip lines interspersed with rope bridges, balance beams, tunnels and breath-taking
stretches of via ferrata – an Italian term literally translated as ‘iron road’ designed to assist soldiers crossing precipitous mountain passes.
In addition to the thrill-seeking obstacles, the walls of the cavern feature
technicoloured lights which illuminate the subterranean background with vibrant colours. The LEDs also reveal the beauty of the underground cavern, which was cleared by hand for over a year. Construction workers were harnessed 100 feet high from the cavern floor using an intricate system of wires and pulleys in a process akin to the slate mining that took place there 200 hundred years ago.
Suitable for adults and children – aged 10 and above – and lasting for up to three hours, the experience is ideal for families looking for an alternative, action-packed day out. Visitor safety is of paramount importance and Zip World Caverns instructors are on hand to assist any nervous explorers.
Located near the historic town of Blaenau Ffestiniog, the new adventure attraction is set to continue to help breathe new life into an ex-mining town that has suffered from unemployment in recent years.ZIP WORLD CAVERNS FAQs
