The older I get the more I realise I might be a little bit of an adrenalin junkie! Whether it’s zipping up the river Kwai on a James Bond style boat to riding the waves in a rickety speedboat in Phuket.
So it’s with a great deal of excitement that we approach our next pulse racing adventure – ziplining!!
We’re about to experience the fastest zip line in the world!
Located in Penrhyn Quarry we’ll be travelling at speeds of up to 100 mph with stunning views of Snowdonia.
There’s several experiences to try out but the hubby has plumped for Velocity 2 – a 1.5 kilometre zip line.
You start off on a smaller ‘test’ line to get your zip legs as it were. Here’s some hardy souls trying it out!
Here’s the hubby heading up towards the little trial zip! We’re trussed up like turkeys – I imagined us soaring like eagles but I am feeling a little more like a stuffed chicken!
And here we can see first hand how you get hoisted into place before plunging into the abyss!!
