Zip World: Titan

Titan is the ultimate group zipping experience, as it has 4 zip lines, meaning you can go down with your family or friends at the same time. You can even get the group of 4 ticket so 4 of you can go down for only £180.

Titan is currently the largest zip zone in Europe. Zipping in a seated position, you are blessed with stunning views over Blaenau Ffestiniog and down the valley ahead.

Zip World Titan encompasses three zip lines - Alfa, Bravo and Charlie. Each rider travels over 2,000m. The total length of the zip lines is over 8,000m! Which is available all year round.

Riders are taken by vehicle to the start of the first zip line, Alpha - the longest of the three.  There is then a short and scenic walk between the end and start of Bravo zip line. The last zip line, Charlie, takes riders back to Llechwedd Slate Cavern where they started.  This involves flying high over the buildings as you come in to land.

Me and Emily were lucky enough to be able to go on titan, which was such an experience. A mini bus took us up to the top of the 1st of the 3 ziplines and I am not kidding you, all we could see at the top was white. We couldnt even see the end of the zipline. The 1st and the 2nd lines were my favourite of the 3. There was a small walk to the last 2 ziplines but nothing major, it was just a bit steep. Titan was the 1st of 3 of our adventures that day, we then did Bounce Below and the Fforest Coasters, which you can see on my other blog posts.




Participants are supplied with a safety helmet, goggles and a flying suit.

Both winter and summer experiences are weather dependent.  For safety reasons they may introduce amendments to weight restrictions or even adventure postponement. When this is necessary they say that they will provide you with at least 24 hours notice on the status page of their website and will endeavour to notify you by email, text or phone. In such instances a refund will not be given, however you can reschedule your booking within the next 12 months.  Full information on their postponement policy can be found in their T&C's.

Children under the age of 18 years will not be permitted to use any activity unless accompanied by a participating adult at all times.

Prepare for all weather! For the colder days, it is strongly advised that you wear gloves whilst participating and they recommend wearing sensible warm/waterproof clothing.

However, shoulders must be covered i.e. no strappy vests, and shorts are permitted but must be knee length.

Long hair should be tied back, all jewellery and scarves to be removed and skirts are not recommended.

On your feet, you will need to wear trainers or walking boots - open toe shoes, flip flops, sandals or similar footwear are not permitted.
