About Zip World Penrhyn Quarry

Located in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park, Zip World Penrhyn Quarry is home to exhilarating adventures, delicious, locally sourced food & drink, and some of the most incredible views North Wales has to offer.

The world's fastest and Europe's longest zip line, Velocity 2 is Zip World's best-known adventure, featuring four parallel lines that span 1.5 kilometres over the beautiful blue water of Penrhyn Quarry lake. It is the perfect group activity, as you and family, friends or colleagues race each other across the lake to see who gets to the other side first - reaching possible speeds of up to and over 100 mph!
New to Penrhyn Quarry for 2019 is Quarry Karts, the UK's first mountain cart track. With a challenging course laid out in the stunning surroundings of this historic slate quarry, the karts are gravity fuelled three-wheelers that you will need to navigate through chicanes, tunnels and a variety of other obstacles to complete the course, with speeds up to 40 mph possible.

And for younger adventurers, BIG RED, the UK's largest mobile zip line, is often situated at Penrhyn Quarry, making this corner of North Wales an ideal stop for families. A tour of the quarry is also available for anyone looking for a more sedate introduction to this unique location.

After all that excitement, the Blondin Restaurant is on hand to refuel and refresh you, serving a range of locally sourced food & drink with an unbeatable outlook over the quarry from its impressive viewing balcony.
