Zip World, an exhilarating and exciting new attraction in Bethesda, near Bangor, North Wales, is set to launch to the British public on March 16th 2013.

Zip World will be the largest zip wire experience in the Northern Hemisphere and is set to see visitors fly through the skies for over a mile at speeds of up to 75mph.

Located in the world's largest old slate quarry, Zip World is a first for the UK and will take visitors over 700ft through the air above a mountain lake with panoramic views out over Snowdonia, to the Isle of Anglesey and even the Isle of Man on a clear day.

The journey starts at ground level with guests being collected in ex-military vehicles and taken high up into the Welsh mountains on a three hour fully guided interactive exploration of the area with commentary. Adventurous visitors will then get the chance to ride the mile long zip wire and fly through the air back to ground level. Guests will get chance to find their feet first with a short taster on the Little Zipper, before stepping up to the big wire.

Participants will be supplied with a flying suit to wear that is wind and shower proof. Helmets and goggles will also be supplied. Prices start from £45 for adults and £36 for children and the website is live now, for more information log on to
