LIMITED RELEASE OF LAUNCH VOUCHERS NOW AVAILABLE FOR THE BIGGEST ZIP WIRE RUNNING ENTIRELY OVER WATER IN THE WORLD!

In what could be the worst-kept secret of 2019 so far, The City Zip Company is excited to announce that it is bringing its thrilling zip wire attraction to Cardiff this summer, in the first ever event of its kind in the Welsh capital!

Allowing visitors the opportunity to launch themselves from 45 metres up off the roof of the voco St.David’s Hotel in Cardiff Bay, riders will travel 350 metres at speeds of up to 59 kilometres per hour, crossing over the water in Mermaid Quay before landing near the Norwegian Church on a separate, dedicated site.

With two zip wires in parallel, riders are able to fly in pairs; enjoying incredible views of the skyline, Cardiff Bay, the Barrage and across to the Bristol Channel.

“We’re so excited to be coming to Cardiff. Having such a beautiful, tall building so close to a large expanseof water allows us to create the ultimate zip wire experience,” said The City Zip Company’s founder andCEO, Barry Shaverin.

The attraction will operate from July 2019 to early January 2020, employing around 25 staff from the local area – and it is estimated it could attract over 50,000 people over the six months of operation.

The City Zip Company also operates Zip Now London, the world’s biggest and fastest city centre zip wire.The London attraction is returning for a third season on 12th June 2019 after hosting 75,000 people in previous years.

“Our London event is one of the busiest attractions of its kind in the UK, and as a result, London’s SouthBank sees significant benefit in the form of jobs, global publicity and millions of pounds spent with otherlocal businesses,” said Shaverin.

“Having worked for two years in one of London’s most cherished parks, we’re able to do all this withoutupsetting local sensitivities.

“So it’s really great for us to bring our unique offering to Wales; for so long the country’s spiritual home for zip wires.”
