Zip World launches free family adventures to help lower the cost of living

Zip World, the adventure company best known for the world’s fastest zipline, is offering one hour of FREE adventures to local families at their four Wales-based adventure parks every Saturday in September 2022 .

The new initiative responds to the financial difficulties caused by the pandemic combined with the cost of living crisis. Families who feel they need help can claim free tickets to one of 15 Zip World adventures on offer.

Zip World Chief Commercial Officer Andrew Hudson said, “All families are having to make tough choices right now about what they can and cannot do. And for some families, that means experiences take a back seat. For those in this situation, we wanted to do something to make sure no one misses out on quality time together, making memories, and having fun.

Zip World has included 15 of its adventures in the offering across its three North Wales locations and one South Wales location. Attractions include the UK’s only such alpine roller coaster, the Fforest Coaster at Betws-Y-Coed, and the UK’s only underground bouncing net system, Bounce Below.

Also included is the brand new underground golf experience at Zip World Llechwedd, Blaenau Ffestiniog. This incredible 18-hole course is the only adventure golf course in the world located 500 feet underground in a cavern. Accessible by the steepest cable car in Europe, the adventure includes elements of the cavern’s history as a former slate mine.

In South Wales, families can head to the Zip World Tower to see the Tower Climber, an epic four-storey high ropes and obstacle course with 69 elements to tackle, plus a lower level for the pleasure of young children.

  • Zip World Fforest, Betws y Coed – Fforest Coaster, Treetop Nets, Tree Hoppers, Skyride 2, Plummet 2
