Opening times vary and depend on which site you plan to visit. If you would like to find out about our opening times please call or email the booking centre.

The booking centre is open between 09.00am - 5.30pm 7 days a week. You can also feel free to email the team at info@zipworld.co.uk and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

To avoid disappointment we highly recommend you pre-book your adventure, especially in holiday periods. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are operating with reduced availability to enable easier social distancing, so to avoid disappointment please do book ahead.

If you’d prefer to speak to one of the team and book over the phone, please call 01248 601 444.

Please note a £4.50 booking and admin fee is charged for bookings made over the phone & £3.50 when ordering online. This fee applies for total booking, not per ticket.

Spectators are welcome at all Zip World sites - however please be aware it is not always possible for spectators to see all/any of the adventures.

Zip World Penrhyn Quarry, Bethesda
Sit back and relax in Blondin Restaurant in the Adventure Terminal as your loved ones soar overhead on Velocity 2 - being a spectator has never been better. You can stand outside on the platform to watch or sit at the picnic tables - the choice is yours.

Zip World Slate Caverns, Blaenau Ffestiniog
If taking part in Bounce Below doesn't appeal to all your group, for £5 per person you can venture underground and watch the spectacular scene.

There is unfortunately no spectator area for Zip World Caverns.

Zip World Fforest, Betws y Coed
Feel free to take a walk around the Zip World Fforest and take in all the action. There is a picnic area next to Fforest Coffi right next to the Fforest Coaster, as well as another by Treetop Nets. Fancy being inside? Take a break inside Fforest Caffi instead.

We welcome everyone to all our sites; however, whilst our activities are designed to be accessible to most people they do offer a degree of physical and mental challenge.

For some people with additional needs this may mean that additional equipment and/or persons will be required for safe participation, however additional measures cannot be guaranteed.  Only Velocity at Zip World Penrhyn, Bethesda is suitable for wheelchair users and must be by prior arrangement.

Please visit our Medical Restrictions page or e-mail accessibility@zipworld.co.uk and we will endeavour to assist you.

Face coverings (Covid-19)

As of Monday 14th September, face coverings must be worn while in inside areas, following government guidelines. There may also be a requirement to wear face coverings at certain points on our adventures:

With Velocity 2, you will be asked to wear a face covering during the journey to the zip line dispatch point in our army trucks (a disposable face covering will be provided to you by us).

With Caverns, you will be required to wear a face covering for the duration of your adventure (a disposable face covering will be provided to you by us).

Otherwise, while outside, wearing a face covering is voluntary (while on other adventures or while walking around our sites).

Wrap up warm!
It's also worth mentioninig that as we move into autumn and winter, you should wrap up warm while on site. We will be keeping everyone outside in the fresh air and open space as much as possible to help social distancing and keep any risk as low as possible, for example while you are queuing or waiting for your adventure to start​.

Zip World Velocity & Zip World Titan:
Prepare for all weather! For the colder days, it is strongly advised that you wear gloves whilst participating and we recommend wearing sensible warm/waterproof clothing. For those warmer summer days, still consider you are in a mountainous environment and temperatures will be significantly lower.

Zip World Caverns & Bounce Below:
The activity is based in an underground cavern where the temperature is approximately 10 °C. Please wear suitable clothing that covers your arms and legs, preferably old garments in the likelihood of dirt/damage occurring. For Caverns, please wear either trainers or walking boots; for Bounce Below, please wear trainers.  Open toe shoes, flip flops, sandals or similar footwear are not permitted. As you will be participating in physical activity, we can not accept liability for any damage to any items of clothing, footwear etc.

Zip World Quarry Karts
As an outdoor adventure you are advised to dress appropriately for the weather conditions. Long sleeves and trousers are recommended, while open toe shoes, flip flops, sandals or similar footwear are not permitted.

All Zip World activities:
Long hair should be tied back, all jewellery and scarves to be removed and skirts are not recommended.
On your feet, please wear trainers or walking boots - open toe shoes, flip flops, sandals or similar footwear are not permitted.
Zip World reserves the right to refuse admittance should appropriate clothing not be worn. As you will be participating in physical activity, we can not accept liability for any damage to any items of clothing, footwear etc.

Under no circumstances may you fly a drone on any of our sites.

If this is the case or you have been advised to isolate yourself, please contact our Adventure Booking Centre on 01248 601 444 and they will be happy to reschedule your adventure for another date, free of charge. Please do not visit our site in person.

In line with government guidelines we are now able to offer sit-down restaurant & cafe options on our sites. There is also a range of “grab and go” style food as well as hot and cold drinks that you can enjoy while on site, for example while using our picnic benches or on your journey home.

We have now re-opened all of our adventures except Titan, which is scheduled to re-open in March 2021.

If you have visited us before or just seen photos and videos online, our adventures will be just as exhilarating as ever once we reopen. If an adventure is incompatible with government guidelines, it will not open until it is safe to do so. We are changing things like where you wait before you take part in an adventure, making sure you wash your hands before and after, and may ask members of your group to help with getting your kit on and off (where applicable) to minimise contact with our team.

As of Monday 14th September, face coverings must be worn while in inside areas, following government guidelines. Wearing face coverings while outside on our sites is otherwise voluntary. If you choose to do so, you are welcome to, but it is not mandatory. Face coverings will be available on the day.

For certain adventures, there may be a requirement to wear face coverings at certain points:

With Velocity 2, you will be asked to wear a face covering during the journey to the zip line dispatch point in our army trucks (a disposable face covering will be provided to you by us).

With Caverns, you will be required to wear a face covering for the duration of your adventure (a disposable face covering will be provided to you by us).

Following the latest government guidelines, we are now only able to accept bookings for group sizes of no more than 6 people from extended households, excluding children age 11 and under. If you have any questions, please contact our Adventure Bookings Centre on 01248 601 444.

Alternatively, if you still cannot find it, please contact us and we will be able to re-send it.
