Fforest Coaster Essentials

About Fforest Coaster

The UK’s only alpine coaster, the Fforest Coaster is an unbeatable adrenaline experience for ages 3 and over, boasting twists and turns aplenty as you speed through the trees down one kilometre of track.

A toboggan style roller coaster on the edge of Snowdonia, it’s located particularly close to the ground so you get an incredible sense of speed, reaching up to 25 mph. Not just an adventure for thrill-seekers, however, you can control the brakes, meaning you can go as fast (or as slow) as you dare! Three goes are included with each ticket, so you can really push the course to its limit on your final run!

Should the worst happen with some wet Welsh weather paying a visit, canopies are fixed to the sledges, keeping you dry in all conditions, with the forest environment also making the coaster particularly well sheltered from wind. If you’re considering it as a day out for kids, it’s a great choice as children between 3 and 8 can share a sledge with an adult (or an older child), while still feeling in control and involved.

On board cameras are available to hire to capture your footage, using AI technology to edit a unique, shareable video with friends and family following your adventure. You can also pay a visit to Fforest Caffi or Fforest Coffi for a delicious bite to eat, with plenty of picnic benches or undercover space to enjoy it. Zip World Fforest is a stone’s throw from Betws-y-Coed, and just 25 minutes from the North Wales coast of Conwy & Llandudno.
