Zip wire which offers 100mph rides along mile-long route

The Big Zipper

(From Daily Mail) The longest continual zip wire in the northern hemisphere opened in a disused quarry, Bethesda, Bangor, North Wales, with visitors able to whiz down a long zip wire suspended 700ft in the air above the Welsh mountains.

Views from Zip World will include Snowdonia, Anglesey and the Isle of Man on a clear day, but riders of the wire may not be able to take it all in as they reach speeds of nearly 100mph.

Riders will be driven up to the top of the quarry, which was 1,200ft deep, in an ex-military vehicle for a tour of the region and a taste of its industrial history before being given a weather-proof suit, helmets and goggles for the ride.

The Big Zipper also has a smaller version called The Little Zipper for those who want to take it a little easier.
