Zip World Presents The Return of Adventure
After 13 weeks of temporary suspension due to the global pandemic, we’re thrilled to announce The Return of Adventure on the 6th of July 2020.
After months of hard work, careful planning and deliberation, we’re delighted to announce that we will be reopening Zip World Penrhyn Quarry, Bethesda and Zip World Fforest, Betws-y-Coed as of the 6th of July 2020! This has been made possible following the most recent Welsh government announcement, stating that the 5 mile travel restriction in Wales will be lifted as of the 6th of July, meaning we can welcome you all back safely. Our vast outdoor spaces and the self-contained nature of our sites lend themselves naturally to socially responsible measures, meaning we can create a safe environment for locals and visitors to the area.
Our skeleton team have worked tirelessly for 3 months now, assuring the safe reopening of our adventures, so this news has come with a huge level of excitement and relief for us all.
Which adventures will be open?
We won’t be opening all of our adventures straight away, just the ones we’re certain we can operate 100% safely with new social distancing measures in mind and control the amount of visitors. We will be opening adventures on our Penrhyn Quarry and Fforest sites only for now. These will include Velocity 2, Fforest Coaster, Zip Safari 2, Plummet 2, Skyride 2 and Tree Hoppers. We will have more updates on when our remaining adventures will be opening in due course.
What safety measures will we have in place?
We will be operating under new socially responsible measures across our sites. These will be highly visible, easy to follow, and will not deter from your extraordinary experience! The 6 steps will include;
- Signing your waiver online before you arrive
- Clear signage and wayfinding
- Reduced capacity - we highly recommend you pre-book
- Staff PPE where applicable
- Cleaning stations and enhanced cleaning routines
- Contactless payments only where possible
If you’d like a more in-depth breakdown of these 6 steps, please head here.
It is also worth noting that our vast outdoor spaces lend themselves well to social distancing, making this safe for our community, visitors to the area and staff to experience simultaneously.
Will my booking change?
If you’ve booked one of our opening adventures sometime over the next couple of months, we will do everything we can to keep your booking exactly as it is. We may have to make a couple of changes here and there to allow for our new reduced capacity measures, but we will be in touch and offer a suitable alternative if this is the case.
When will the rest of the adventures open?
We’re hoping to have all of our adventures open by September. Some, for example Bounce Below, will involve a stricter and more time-consuming cleaning routine, and others don’t lend themselves as well to our new social distancing measures, therefore we will wait until restrictions have eased slightly before opening these. Safety first!
Above all else, we can’t wait to welcome you all back in a way which is safe for yourselves and our staff. The news that we can open on the 6th of July has been fantastic and we are itching to get you all back on our unique adventures!
