In March 2016 Zip World Fforest opened on the site formerly known as Tree Tops Adventure set in 120 acres of the Gwydyr Forest in Betws-y-coed. The attractions on offer included zip line and rope courses through the tree canopy, a Powerfan freefall simulator (“basejumping without a parachute”), and a giant swing. The adventure experiences on offer were augmented in May 2017 with the opening of Fforest Coaster – the UK’s only Alpine Coaster. On the first 500 metres of the track, sledges are hauled uphill, from where they then make their gravity-driven descent at speeds of up to 25 mph down the remaining 710 metres of the course.
