Zip World Velocity 2

Way back in 2015, Hubby and Kian visited North Wales and took on the challenge of Zip World Titan, a four person zip line which offers spectacular views over moor, mountain and mine and encompasses three separate zip lines – Anarchy, Bedlam and Chaos.

Ever since they have been dropping hints left, right and centre about taking on Zip World’s Velocity 2 – The Fastest Zip Line in the World.

Velocity 2 is not only the fastest zip line in the world, with speeds up to 125mph, but it is also the longest in Europe at 1,555 metres long and 500 feet above Penrhyn Quarry.

Knowing we were visiting North Wales this week, I booked them on to do the zip, which is around half an hours drive from where we are staying in Anglesey.

At arrival you check-in and get kitted up in some rather fetching red boiler suits, a helmet and protective goggles. It is then a short walk to a smaller zip wire for a taster of what is to come.

It was fascinating watching them laid on the specially made ‘air beds’ and getting their harness attached.

The bed then lowers leaving them suspended before launching them across the lake.

After you fly across the quarry, the line lowers you to the ground gently and you are loaded into a lorry to be transported to the top of the quarry to ride Velocity 2.

It is around a 20 minute ride to the top and the Skyline building, where they riders are sent down the Velocity Zip Line in groups of 4.

There is good phone signal here, so I was communicating with them right up until they were ready to get connected to the zip line, so I knew roughly when they would launch.

We instantly knew it was them thanks to the cries of “BOGIES” as they whizzed past!!

Both Hubby and Kian loved every second and came off feeling exhilarated and wanting to do it all over again!!

All-in-all a visit to ride Velocity is a great experience, but I would not recommend taking children as there is a lot of waiting around with nothing for them to do.

  1. Oh my goodness, that looks amazing although I am not entirely sure I would go on it. I love zip wires but heights is another thing and combining the two I think the height and speed may just be too much for me.

  2. Amazing views, but this looks like my worst nightmare! I can’t deal with heights. I’d be scared of falling, especially after the news report the other day of someone’s zipline snapping on a holiday in Thailand.

  3. I think I just died a little bit watching you all do this. You’re so brave cause I couldn’t but was cool to watch!

  4. What an amazing experience and review on Zip World Velocity. I always wanted to challenge myself to do something exciting and adventurous and I guess this one sound doable. Bungee jump is definitely a no no for me.

  5. This looks so exciting, but I don’t think I’m brave enough to try this. Lmao. I’m coward, I know. 🤣

  6. Simply WOW! This place will definitely be in my bucket list. I love the video included in this blog. You can feel the excitement and thrill going down the zip line. It’s so mesmerizing.

  7. Such a fun and great experience you had,this place looks incredible. There’s so much to do and see there! Looks like a brilliant place to take the whole family
