Wire Improvements at NDAC

Wire landing break arms being installed at NDAC ChepstowYou may have noticed that the Wire Zip Slide has been closed for most of February whilst we have been making some improvements.

We have had some landing break arms produced and they were delivered and installed recently by crane.

This means that we now have improved braking at the end of your 700m zip slide ride which will allow us to operate during stronger tail winds and for more of the year.

The works have all been completed now and the Wire is back open now and available for bookings. We have dates available between now and the end of August.

If you would like to brave the Wire Zip Slide, please visit thewirezipslide.com/

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 this exhilarating ride will take your breath away!

The Wire Zip Slide is suitable for all ages.
Maximum weight limit is 120kg (18.8 stone)
Lower Limit is 20kg (3.15 stone)
