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.

 

 

400ft Bungee Jump

 

This is by far our biggest 400ft Bungee Jump ever and now more people than ever can enjoy the dazzling views from the 400ft platform!  With a 300ft crane and a 100ft quarry, jumpers will experience an unbelievable adrenaline rush as they leap into the skyline of South Wales after hearing the famous 3, 2, 1, Bungee!

The incredible height of the jump provides even the most serious of thrill-seekers with an unforgettable and intense experience that cannot be replicated anywhere in the UK!
