Where is Zip World Tower?
Rhigos, Hirwaun, Aberdare, CF44 9UF
Zip World Tower is located on the former spot of the iconic Tower Colliery coal mine and is the first Zip World site to be situated in South Wales. Up until its closure in 2008, the Tower Colliery site was the oldest consistently working deep-coal mine in the UK and was the last of its kind to remain in the South Wales Valleys. Nestled in the breath-taking Rhigos mountain range and currently home to the world's fastest seated zip line, Phoenix, the mini zip line Tower Flyer and the two-seated roller coaster, Tower Coaster, Zip World Tower is the ideal family day out in South Wales.
Bringing a fresh new lease of life to this historic site, enjoy the brilliant facilities and refreshments at the Tower’s Adventure Terminal, where you can check in, kit up, grab a bite to eat at Cegin Glo Bar and Bistro and enjoy the charmingly restored Colliery site.
