Zip World Tower Site Climbs To New Heights With Launch Of Fourth Attraction in South Wales
  • The ‘Tower Climber’ is the fourth adventure to be introduced to the site, opening July 2022
  • It will feature the largest activity tower of its kind in the world
  • Zip World Tower has already welcomed 100,000 visitors since it launched in Spring 2021


Zip World has announced it will open a fourth new attraction at its South Wales site.

The popular activity and adventure brand revealed its plans for the brand-new Tower Climber, which is set to open on the 11th July 2022.

At 30 metres high, the Tower Climber will be the biggest of its kind in the world and feature a four-storey obstacle course experience, with 69 different coal-mining themed elements to tackle.

From suspended stepping-stones, to floating platforms and tightropes, adventurers will be harnessed into the system, ensuring they’re perfectly safe at all times while taking on the hour-long activity.

With a dedicated lower level for mini adventurers from ages 3+, the new experience is suitable for all the family.

The Tower Climber will be the fourth instalment at Zip World Tower which has welcomed over 100,000 visitors since it opened last Spring.

The Phoenix zip line is the fastest seated zip line in the world and boasts four parallel zip lines across two zones, including the stunning Llyn Fawr.

For smaller children, the Tower Flyer is a smaller zip line, much closer to the ground, for those who are dipping their toe into the world of adventure.

The Tower Coaster sits near the former colliery bath-houses and is the only two seater coaster of its kind in the UK.

Guests can also enjoy a bite to eat in the Cegin Glo Bar and Bistro to satisfy their appetites after a busy day of adventuring.


Zip World Managing Director David Stacey said:

“Recognising and celebrating the site’s mining past has been a priority for us so it’s great to be able to create another themed experience that nods to its heritage.”
