Tandem Skydive

Imagine standing at the edge of an open doorway in an aircraft flying at 10,000 feet – the noise of the engines and the wind ringing in your ears with only the outline of distant fields below. Now imagine leaning forward out of that doorway and letting go – falling forward into the clouds, skydiving down through the air as you start free falling at over 120mph!

Accelerated Free Fall Solo Skydive

This is the real thing and should only be undertaken by those who really want to learn what skydiving is all about! Learning to skydive solo is a big challenge and you will receive all the training required including practical and classroom sessions covering all areas of making a solo skydive from 10,000 feet.

Bungee Jumps

Velocity Zip Wire

Prepare for a truly unique and exhilarating experience; the fastest zip line in the world. Soar over Penrhyn Quarry where you could travel at speeds of over 100mph while you take in the breathtaking views and feel the freedom of flight.
