Fforest Coaster Ride at Zip World, Wales
A wonderful Vintage Flying Experience within easy reach of Blaenau Ffestiniog, Gwynedd.
Make a beeline for the only Alpine Coaster of its kind in UK and prepare for a thrilling woodland adventure. The Zip World Fforest Coaster is much like a traditional toboggan, the only difference being it runs on rails, so it can be experienced all year round, come rain or shine. Hop into the self-controlled carriage for three hair-raising laps of the course, beginning in the heart of the Welsh forest. Ascend 300 metres on the uplift, before letting gravity take its toll as the toboggan zooms and weaves between the trees at exhilarating speeds, reaching up to 25mph in some places. For those who’d prefer to take it easy and take in the picturesque views, the speed can be reduced with the self-controlled brake system for a more leisurely ride.
Your voucher may be used year round, but please be aware that the coaster is closed Tuesday-Thursday between November and April.
During wet weather conditions, it is likely to take longer to complete all three runs, due to additional spacing required between the release of carriages.
Expect to be at the venue for around one hour to one and half hours at peak times.
Spectators are welcome and may bring cameras, however, please be aware that they may not see all of the action.
Please wear comfortable, weather appropriate clothing.
The minimum age to ride along is 9 and the minimum height is 4 ft 4. Unfortunately, the ride is unsuitable for pregnant ladies.
Please disclose any medical conditions at point of booking to determine suitability. An ‘acknowledgement of risk’ form must be completed on the day.
