Zip World Velocity
It's perhaps the closest humans can get to soaring like a bird: Zip World's Velocity is the world's fastest zip line, not to mention Europe's longest. Hurtle through the air at speeds above 100mph and take in the show-stopping views of the lake and the Snowdonia Mountains. The day begins with a taster session on the Little Zipper. Don safety gear, be attached to the wire and zip down to the slate quarry at up to 40mph. Then hop aboard the specialised transport and travel through the quarry to reach the Big Zipper. Muster that courage: its time to attach to the zip line and set off for one mile of adrenaline-charged flight, 500 feet above the mountain lake. It's a tremendously liberating sensation and a true test of daredevil credentials.
