About Tower Flyer
Take flight on our Tower Flyer, a mini zip lining adventure with 3 zipping zones and 2 lines side-by-side, ideal for kids or adults not quite ready to take on the adrenaline rush of Phoenix.
With stunning views of the Rhigos mountain range, you’ll get kitted up in your harness by a Zip World instructor, and climb the steps to the first tower, ready for the adventure to begin. The first zip line will see you flying 115 metres alongside the historic Tower Colliery, landing on the second tower. Slightly higher up this time, you’ll soar 80 metres on our second zip line, before landing on the third tower for your final flight. You’ll complete a further 75 metres of zip lining, and land safely on the ground, right by our Cegin Glo Bar and Bistro, making this a perfect time to grab that post-adventure snack!
The Tower Flyer is the perfect adventure activity for kids and families in South Wales, and the two parallel zip lines mean you can enjoy this adventure as a pair. 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 entertained before you take on Phoenix yourself, or simply want to push yourself to try something new, Zip World Tower is the perfect choice.
The reception area where you’ll check in for our Tower Coaster, Phoenix and Tower Flyer adventures is directly next to our fully licensed Cegin Glo Bar and Bistro, which serves delicious, locally sourced food and drink for your visit. Just 40 minutes from Cardiff and Swansea, Zip World Tower is the perfect location for your holiday in South Wales.
