Zip World at Blaenau Ffestiniog is home to some of the best adventures the Uk has to offer!

Bounce Below - Hidden underground in a 176-year old disused cavern, that is twice the size of St Paul's Cathedral. Bounce Below is the first facility of its kind in the world.

Trampoline like nets are hung within two vast chambers at different levels, the highest being 180 feet up from the bottom of the cavern, linked together by walkways and slides.

Zip World Titan - The ultimate group zipping experience, Titan is currently the largest zip zone in Europe. Zipping in a seated position, you are afforded stunning views over Blaenau Ffestiniog and down the valley ahead.

The summer experience at Zip World Titan encompasses three zip lines - Alfa, Bravo and Charlie. Each rider travels over 2,000m. The total length of the zip lines is over 8,000m!

Zip World Caverns - Zip World Caverns is a remarkable, uniquely exhilarating and atmospheric underground adventure that has been inaccessible for nearly 200 years.

Take a journey through the underground caverns on zip lines, rope bridges, via ferrata and tunnels. It is the ultimate all weather adventure.

After being kitted up, you need to complete a training course using the specialised lanyard safety system before setting off on the main course.

What a blast! After being briefed and kitted out with our hairnets and hardhats we were lead into the cavern to start our hour of fun! There were a number of different trampolines to explore and various slides which joined the different areas. An hour was probably just a little too long for us personally but we had a great... More

your in control of your own hook ons, scrambling along logs to the next zip, there are rope bridges, it will take a while to get round so the estimate that they give you may seem long but it's correct, throughly enjoyed it.this was, part of my birthday present....would love to do it again

This was a birthday present and was brilliant fun. It was a great activity whilst the weather wasn't the best and it was great to feel like a big kid again with the different levels of trampolines and the slides. An hour is long enough as it requires a good level of fitness. The groups are relatively small too so... More

Me and my partner have wanted to go for a wile. Finally saving to spend a day here, we booked the caverns for 10am and bounce below for 4pm. We checked in and were greeted by our instructor Mike (who was awesome! Very funny and certainly enhanced our day!) we took part in the caverns which was both exciting and... More

Hi. We are really sorry this happened to you on the day, this is a rare occurrence and does not affect safety. However, on this note we have just re-designed the parachutes so this will no longer happen. We would love you to come back, can you please call us on 01248 601444. We look forward to seeing you.

Wonderful hour (which was enough) with my 9 year old son at Bounce Below. Massively friendly, welcoming and fun staff throughout the centre. The attraction and bouncing was amazing. So unique and such fun. Will definitely go back (and will also try the Zips). Thanks so much - BRILLIANT

This place never fails to amaze me. I visited in the first week of it opening and returned today with my fiancé. We both loved it and came out exhausted but with big grins on our faces. Love it.

I have previously visited bounce below and really enjoyed it, so my wife and I decided to treat ourselves to a little adventure. we arrived quite early because of the weather and went to check-in and we were asked if we would like to move onto the 10am trip rather than the 10.30am trip we had originally booked. this was...

Enjoyed it much more than I expected, had a great hour with my almost teenage son. Could be classed as heavy going for someone unfit.
