Velocity is 'the nearest thing to flying’. As well as being the longest zip line in Europe it is also the fastest in the world.

This adrenaline fueled attraction offers visitors a unique experience. With a mile long zip line reaching speeds in excess of 100mph, riders will have a birds-eye view of the historic Bangor slate quarry and the spectacular North Wales coastline beyond.
