More Information (Nation Player is not responsible for external websites)

Join St John Ambulance Cymru for this thrill filled exhilarating challenge as you take on the fastest seated Zip Line adventure in the world.

Phoenix Zip World Tower is based at the former Tower Colliery site in Aberdare, South Wales, on the edge of the Brecon Beacons. Containing two incredible zip lines, Phoenix is a record-breaker, being the fastest seated zip line in the world, and Zip World’s steepest. You’ll travel at speeds up to 70 mph and with four lines situated side by side where you can race friends and family to be the fastest.

The first zip line takes you down Rhigos mountain, across the Llyn Fawr reservoir, offering stunning views of the Cynon Valley and enjoying the very fastest speeds, racing into the landing point as you fly above the trees. The second line returns you back to Tower Colliery and the Zip World site, spanning over 1.5 kilometres in total.

By taking part in this event, not only do you benefit from a 50% discount on the standard booking fee paying just £25, but we will also send you everything that you need to help you fundraise in Support of St John Ambulance Cymru. The sponsorship that you raise will help us to provide vital life-saving training and support in communities across Wales.

Participants are requested to pledge to raise a minimum of £100 in sponsorship, but we will send you everything that you need to help you fundraise.

By taking part in this sponsored fundraising adrenaline challenge, not only do you get to have a fantastic fun-filled adventure, but your support could be the difference between a life lost, and a life saved.
