Segway Active

From £15.00* per person you can take part in a Segway Active Experience

Gliding on a Segway feels like nothing you’ve ever experienced. Step on and your instincts take over – and you quickly realise it responds to how you balance yourself. It feels incredibly natural and, most of all, it’s really fun.

Our one hour Segway Active experience is set in a fantastic location at the National Activity & Diving Centre (NDAC) in Chepstow, situated around a disused limestone quarry with fantastic views.

We have 12 off-road Segways, a custom built HQ, training facilities and an off-road course. Each driving adventure lasts an hour, starting with full instructions and a safety briefing on our flat training zone. This gives you the opportunity to get to grips with your Segway in a safe environment. Once you’ve become a competent rider, you’ll be unleashed on our off road tour around the quarry and activity centre at Chepstow.

*Please note that we also offer 30 minute packages and further discounted rates if you are booking three or more places. The standard 1 hour price is £35 per person, the price for 3 people or more is £30 per person. This discount only applies to the £30/£35 prices (reduced to £15/£17.50) and cannot be used with our 30 Minute package.

Giant 3G Swing

The Giant 3G Swing is new for 2016 and for only £9.50 (reduced from £19) you can experience weightlessness 245 feet in the air on our ultimate adrenaline-pumping blast!

If you dare, you’ll be strapped into the Giant 3G Swing, hoisted 50ft up into the air and slowly pulled back to the release point…

Then it is down to one of you to pull the ripcord!

After the initial terrifying drop, you’ll launch into the air, feeling the G-force as you swing up into the sky, 245ft over the steep quarry edges of the UK’s Deepest Inland Dive Site.

Improvements to Wire Zip Slide Complete

Wednesday, March 11th, 2015

You 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!
