Had a fantastic morning at Zipworld, what a great experience it was flying along on a Zip wire, real adrenaline rush. The views were spectacular driving up in the truck to the top Zip wire. As were the views as you flew across the valley....More

You don't just do the main zip wire there is an initial shorter and less extreme wire to get the feel of it. The "bus" ride to the top in a converted ex army 4x4 lorry was fun with a stop half way up for...More

This activity was something from my wife's bucket list. It's a bit scary when you arrive and see people whizzing over your heads and out across the lake. However the professional staff soon put you at ease and explain the procedures to keep you safe,...More

Not as scary as it first looks. Get to do a small tester first which calms the nerves ! The bigger one looks a bit daunting on the way up and the throat did dry up!! But once hooked up and let go it was...More

It’s a good experience but overpriced. Check the weather before as I’m not even overweight but because of my weight and the very small amount of wind, they had to put a parachute on me which made me go half the speed of everyone else...More

On the short training zip you walk and it’s ten minutes up a gentle slope. On the long zip wire you go in an army style covered jeep. It’s very steep and takes about 15 minutes. There’s no walking.
