The Zip Wire



The Wire is one of the UK’s longest, tallest and fastest zip slides, running the 700 metre length of the spectacular NDAC Quarry.

Launch yourself from the 70m high cliff edge and speed along the length of our 80m deep flooded quarry.






Reaching speeds up to 40 miles per hour exhilarating ride will take your breath away!





Giant 3G Swing




If you dare!   You’ll be strapped into the Giant 3G Swing, hoisted 50ft up into the air and slowly pulled back to the release point…

Then it is down to one of you to pull the ripcord!





After the initial terrifying drop, you’ll launch into the air, feeling the G-force as you swing up into the sky, 245ft over the steep quarry edges of the UK’s Deepest Inland Dive Site.

You will then be momentarily weightless before accelerating through double gravity as you level out at the bottom.

You will continue to swing several times until experienced staff bring you to a halt and carefully lower you down to the ground.
