About Quarry Flyer
Take flight from the top of the Penrhyn Quarry adventure terminal in this dual zip line adventure ideal for kids or anyone not quite up to the white-knuckle adrenaline rush of Velocity 2. After climbing the steps to the Adventure Terminal terrace, you’ll be able to enjoy stunning views of the Penrhyn Quarry site and the bright blue lake below.
Having been clipped in by a Zip World instructor, the first of two zip lines will send you flying 110 metres through the air, from the Adventure Terminal to the tower that forms the launch point for your second zip line. Keep an eye out for the brave adventurers taking part in Velocity 2 as you speed along! Once you’ve landed safely on the tower, you’ll climb another small flight of stairs before zipping a further 90 metres back down to the ground.
Over the 200 metres of zip line there’s an elevation drop of ten metres that lets you pick up plenty of speed, while with two parallel lines side-by-side, it’s a perfect adventure for siblings, couples or best friends to take on together! Whether you’re on the hunt for a family day out that everyone can take part in, looking for an activity to keep the kids happy before you take on Velocity 2 yourself, or simply need an alternative to our bucket list zip, the Quarry Flyer at Zip World Penrhyn Quarry is a great choice.
The Adventure Terminal is also where you would check in for our Velocity 2 and Quarry Karts adventures, as well as being home to our fully licensed Blondin Restaurant, serving delicious, locally sourced food and drink for your visit. Only 20 minutes from Bangor and 35 minutes from Llandudno, Penrhyn Quarry is the perfect way to spend the day during a holiday in North Wales.
