We did the cavern zip wire. We booked online and turned up. I was quite scared when I got there as the family booked me in. The staff were excellent and pumped myself up to do it. My 11-year-old son led us through the 3 hour adventure. Terrifying but purely thrilling.

With mandatory mask wearing and notices everywhere in reception about 10% were wearing masks and even when an announcement was made, ignored and when offered a mask, 1 person took one and put it in their pocket! It was very busy so I asked a lovely girl at reception if I could reschedule and she was quite happy to but still waiting for an email confirmation. I look forward to returning but Zip World you need to tighten up on government regulations if not for your clients but your staff.

Booked the Quarry Karts last minute and it was brilliant. We've been here loads of times and it just gets better. This time the Karts. Great quality kit, lovely staff, good instruction and a ride up the mountain in the big red truck. Following a briefing you're left to your own devices. After our adventure we used the restaurant and we're genuinely impressed by the choice and quality of the food. No cheap cafe food here. Can't recommend this place enough. Great job guys!

Words cannot express how amazing this was I have terminal cancer and did this for charity. From the moment we arrived at velocity 2 the amazing and friendly staff made you feel at ease, their knowledge and understanding of my needs and the fact I may need assistance was second to none, the cleanliness of the venue was also near clinical. Every step of the way everything was explained fully. Words cannot actually explain how professionally and passionate the staff were about their roll. If you only do one thing in your life do this

Took a buzzing trip down the zip wire with my hubby for his 6oth birthday - it was amazing - one off the bucket list!!!! What an experience, that felt totally safe, with a sublime view at the top.
