Zip World, the adventure company best known for the world’s fastest zip line, is offering an hour of FREE adventures to families local to their four Wales-based adventure parks every Saturday during the month of September 2022.

The new initiative is in response to the financial difficulties brought about by the pandemic combined with the cost-of-living crisis. Families who feel they need help can claim free tickets for any of the 15 Zip World adventures on offer.

Zip World’s Commercial Director Andrew Hudson said: “All families are having to make difficult choices right now about what they can and can’t do. And for some families, this means experiences are taking a back seat. For those who find themselves in this situation, we wanted to do something to make sure no one has to miss out on spending quality time together, making memories and having fun.”

Zip World has included 15 of its adventures in the offer across it’s three North Wales sites and one South Wales site. Attractions include the UK’s only alpine coaster of its kind, the Fforest Coaster at Betws-Y-Coed, and the UK’s only subterranean bouncy nets system, Bounce Below.

Also included is the all-new Underground Golf experience at Zip World Llechwedd, Blaenau Ffestiniog. This incredible 18-hole course is the world’s only adventure golf course set 500ft underground in a cavern. Accessible by Europe’s steepest cable railway, the adventure has elements of the cavern’s history as a former slate mine woven throughout.

In South Wales, families can take a trip to Zip World Tower to see the Tower Climber, an epic four storey obstacle and high ropes course with 69 elements to tackle, plus a lower level for younger children to enjoy.

It’s a great opportunity to get active, boost wellbeing, and enjoy time with your loved ones for those who really need it.”
