Dual Zip Line Trekking
30mins - 1hr
Under 15s require a ticket-holding adult to participate with them.
Wired for speed
Speed side-by-side through the trees, down into the green valley, or over the Mining Village of Hobbledown Heath on one of our dual zip lines. Our zip trek is our most popular attraction and is made up of 1km of long zips and aerial bridges over the green surroundings of the heath. Each zip offers varying degrees of angle and speed for maximum thrill factor!
Our long dual zip lines allow you to speed through the air and get your zip line fix with your friend or partner. Although you’re in the air for a short time, the views and adrenaline rush makes this activity worth it!

What’s Involved in The Zip Line?
During the zip line trek, you experience incredible views and a rush to remember. This activity doesn’t require as much exertion and climbing as the high ropes course, but some ability is still required to clip onto the zip lines. A team member will guide you through how to attach yourself throughout the course and a team member will always be visible on the ground if you need any help.
Complete the course in your own time as one group is only able to complete an obstacle at one time. This allows for your group to provide encouragement along the way!
Who Is It For?
Our zip wires are great for anyone over 1.4m tall. However, participants under 15 must be accompanied by an adult. Zip lining is a fun activity for adrenaline seekers looking to experience a rush. Whether you’re a couple wanting to experience zip lining together or are friends looking to conquer a fear together, our dual zip lines are the perfect experience.
The zip lines course at Gripped is a great addition to your group day out. Whether you’re a corporate team, hen/stag party or just a group of friends looking for some fun, what better way to get out of the house than a trip to Gripped?
