Skyride Essentials

About Skyride

Europe’s highest giant swing, Skyride is set in a stunning position overlooking the Conwy valley, located just outside Betws-y-Coed and less than 30 minutes from the North Wales coastline of Llandudno and Conwy.

A five-seater swing set 80 feet high up in the air, your group, whether friends, family or complete strangers, will be winched back to a near-vertical position. From there, one brave individual gets the responsibility of pulling the release string and sending you all hurtling towards the ground, before rising up again out towards the valley beyond. Completely gravity driven, you’ll enjoy an incredible sense of speed and weightlessness throughout.

With the five seats available, Skyride is a perfect adventure day out for the whole family. Between Plummet and Skyride, there’s sure to be an adventure at Zip World Fforest to put your fears to the test! After your adventure, you can also refuel and recharge at one of our on-site cafes, serving hot and cold food and drink.
