ZIP World is to open a new indoor activity centre and accommodation on the former Adventure Parc Snowdonia site in Conwy.

Zip World Conwy is set to open on March 22, in time for the Easter holidays.

It will feature more than 30 camping pods and a host of indoor experiences, including the Adrenaline Indoors assault course, Altitude Climber climbing walls, Elevation Indoors high ropes, and Adrenaline Drop tower.

Offering a weatherproof day out for families with children of all ages, Zip World Conwy will expand the brand’s portfolio of sites to seven across England and Wales.

Or, for a particular rush of adrenaline, you can see the Eryri mountains and Conwy Valley from 40ft above and drop to the ground with Adrenaline Drop.

Altitude Climber will be available for little ones aged five or older with an array of climbing walls, jumps, and more.

The site will also have a soft play area and an onsite café offering a range of food and beverages.

Its camping pods can accommodate one to four guests, and will offer heating, lighting, plug sockets and a decked outdoor area.

There are also a number of dog-friendly and accessible pods available.

The site will operate with 30 Zip World staff during peak periods.

Andrew Hudson, Zip World chief executive, said: “We are excited to unveil Zip World Conwy as our newest adventure location, and in turn help to revive the attractions at the former Adventure Parc Snowdonia site and bring further investment to the North Wales economy.

“While we have ambitions and exciting plans to continue our growth across the UK and beyond, North Wales will always be our home and we’re proud to contribute to the local Conwy economy and wider Welsh tourism sector.

“This venture reflects our ongoing commitment to pushing boundaries, creating unforgettable experiences for families and thrill seekers, and establishing Zip World as a global leader in adventure tourism.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming our first visitors this Easter.”

Jim Jones, chief executive of North Wales Tourism, added: “I can’t emphasise enough the significant challenges that our tourism and hospitality sector is experiencing currently.

“So amidst this climate, I’m really pleased that Zip World has been proactive in taking over the closed site.

“I have every confidence that Zip World's investment in the location will result in a new attraction for North Wales that will not only enhance the tourism economy but also contribute to the growth of their brand.”

Conwy County Borough Council leader, Cllr Charlie McCoubrey, added: “This is fantastic news for the Conwy Valley and the region as a whole.

“Zip World has a proven track record of delivering high quality tourism and leisure activities.

“Indoor facilities are particularly beneficial, helping to create a less seasonal and more sustainable tourism offer.”

Tickets for the indoor activities will start from £6 for children aged one or older, and £10+ for adults.

Age and height restrictions apply.
