For those wishing to enjoy the views but without the flying, come aboard our former military vehicles which will take you on a fascinating journey through Penrhyn Quarry to the top where there are views out to Ireland on a clear day. A commentary about the history of the quarry is available to download on your smartphone from reception.
The Quarry Tour is the ideal way to join in the adventure. Guests are collected from outside reception and taken to the finish of the ‘Little Zipper’.
From here, you will be transported up the quarry road to Velocity Big Top. Along the journey there is evidence of an industrious past which our professional drivers will bring to life with their knowledge and compelling stories.
Once at the summit you will watch riders fly down the mile long zip line before being returned in the same vehicle back to reception.
It was fab!!
