Ok so here it is ...you’ve discovered the UK’s longest, highest and fastest zip wire, and it’s right above a flooded Cornwall quarry (well that’s the name explained). Adrenalin Quarry is the only attraction of its kind that doesn’t need booking in advance, and there’s no age limit either (the youngest ever to ride it was just 4 and the oldest an impressive 94).
Put off lying on the beach for a day and grab the opportunity to brave this spectacular experience. You’ll reach a speed of 40mph as you glide between cliff faces on this once in a lifetime zip wire ride. There’s no fuss, just the opportunity to turn up, jump and have an exhilarating time. Adrenalin coursing through your veins aside, the ride is also a lovely chance to see Cornwall’s views from a whole new angle, but given the fact that you’ll be whooshing high above a pool of water you’ll be forgiven for having other things on your mind.
Now it’s time for the stats, the zip wire is 490m long, 50m high and reaches 40mph. The attraction is open in any weather, although it closes during the winter so check the Adrenalin Quarry website for more information. If you want to save time when you get there you can fill in the forms you need to sign online before you get there. Have fun.
