The nearest thing to flying

If you feel brave enough, join the Hospice of the Good Shepherd Team and conquer the longest zip line in Europe and the fastest in the world. You will take on not only one, but two zip wire experiences at Velocity Zip World Penrhyn Quarry, Bethesda, and help us raise money for local people with a life limiting illness.

Labelled as the closest thing to flying, you will be going at speeds of over 100mph and you will be travelling, head first, 700ft above the mountain lake, so be ready for the ride of a life time! It’s Velocity has two pairs of zip lines.

The experience starts with the ‘Little Zipper’.  This is a great introduction and confidence builder with a maximum speed of around 45mph.  The journey takes riders into the heart of the historic quarry where the off road journey to the Big Zipper commences.

The whole experience lasts 2 fun filled hours.
