ZipWorld in Bethesda, Snowdonia, North Wales

Posted on November 5th by Amy Bowers

For his 70th birthday present we decided to buy my dad a ticket for Europe’s longest zip wire at ZipWorld in Bethesda, here in Snowdonia, North Wales.

Once we looked into it, my mum, our two daughters and I decided we should probably come along to keep him company. Louise kindly volunteered to hold our bags and look after the car. (Insert chicken noises here.)

So yesterday, 3 generations of the Llwyd family drove up to Penrhyn Quarry just south of Bangor for a truly remarkable experience. I hope you enjoy our video.
