Zip World Fforest Coaster – the first Alpine Coaster “on the island“

Snowdonia (German: Adlerhorst) is a region in the north of Wales, protected as a national park. It is known for its spectacular mountain chains and is a popular destination for tourists. The park attracts millions of visitors every year and is one of the most popular national parks in England and Wales. The park is home to 26 000 people, who still farm the countryside, which consists mainly of mountains and open terrain.  

Last year, we built the slides on the world's largest trampoline "Bounce Below" deep under the earth with the company ZipWorld, the future operator of the system. There are also a host of other offers for guests seeking an adrenaline rush, including ZipLine, Skyride, climbing tours in caves, etc.  

Now the region can boast another attraction. The Alpine Coaster has a length of approx. 710 m and comes with the distance control system. The 365 m climb runs with the tried and tested lifting system. The opening of the track is planned for Easter.
