Gear up for a gravity-fuelled adventure with Quarry Karts! Take on the UK’s ONLY mountain cart experience as you travel down the Penrhyn Quarry mountains, alongside the world’s fastest zip line! Explore the unique dirt track and enjoy the excitement of twists and turns to incredible views on the Snowdonia mountain range and beyond.
The company behind the fastest zip line in the world and underground bouncy nets has just launched its latest attraction in time for summer 2019, the UK’s only mountain cart experience.
The new attraction, Quarry Karts, is situated on the edge of the historic Penrhyn slate quarry and will allow visitors to challenge themselves on an exhilarating, mountainous track. All while taking in the breath-taking Welsh views which could soon be classed as a World Heritage site rivalling the scenery of the Grand Canyon and the Great Barrier Reef.
On the new £1million adrenaline experience riders will make their way down the three-kilometre dirt track which starts at 1500ft+ above sea level at a 10% gradient overcoming a series of obstacles on the way, including chicanes, tunnels and banked corners.
The karts are gravity fuelled, with a low centre of gravity and the independent hydraulic disc brakes provide the control needed to drift around corners while putting rider’s reflexes, judgement and white-knuckle driving ability to the test.
