ultimate date night
Saturday 17th February 2024
Take your love to new heights with Zip World’s one-of-a-kind Valentine’s adventure; Valentine’s Flights! Set-off atop the Penrhyn Quarry mountain and soar under the moonlight at 100mph on the world’s fastest zip line, before touching down for a 3-course meal and a glass of bubbly each.
Your Valentine’s Flight is an entirely guided adventure, so just relax and enjoy the experience, we will take you through it every step of the way so that the pair of you can soak up every minute of this unique activity!
When you arrive at Zip World Penrhyn Quarry, you’ll be greeted at check-in by our friendly team before heading through to get kitted-up in your harness, helmet and goggles, as well as receiving a safety briefing. We ask that you wrap up warm, but be aware you won’t be able to have any loose accessories, such as scarves, on the zip line.
You’ll then hop aboard our iconic red ex-army trucks and embark on a 20-minute voyage to the very top of the Penrhyn Quarry mountain. On this journey, you’ll get a chance to glimpse the quarry from all angles under the stars, as you travel along the 3km track. Once atop the mountain, you’ll get the chance to soak up the Eryri (Snowdonia) views from the same height as the Empire State Building and grab some selfies.
After another all-important safety briefing, you and your partner/ pal will take your space in our Skyline building (complete with a roaring log-fire, of course!), and wait to depart for your flight! When it’s your turn, you’ll be connected to the zip, and with a 3, 2, 1, you’ll be released and will be soaring above the quarry lake before you know it! Reaching speeds of up to 100mph, you and your partner will feel the freedom of flight as you glide side-by-side under the stars on the world’s fastest zip line.
At the end of the zip, you’ll reach our braking system which will bring you to a stop, and then you’ll have a short walk back down to the main reception building where your dining experience begins!
The Food and Drink
From flight to food, you will have already pre-ordered your delicious 3 course meal and will be greeted at the Blondin Restaurant with a glass of Prosecco each.

We’re sure you will have worked up quite the appetite after your adventure, so sit back and relax as you enjoy this exclusive, locally-sourced menu, and plenty of soft and alcoholic drink options behind the bar.
