Ever since I heard about Bounce Below in Blaenau Ffestiniog I’ve been dying to go. A year later, I finally had the chance to go with the girls. If you’re a thrill seeking adventurer and if you like the idea of bouncing underground in caves, then this is for you. If you’re scared of heights (up to 180ft) then maybe you should give it a miss.
Zip World an attraction firm in Wales, have eleven unique adventures based in three locations:
- Betwys y Coed
- Blaenau Ffestiniog
There is a choice of activities to choose from. Whether you want a tree top adventure, fly down the world’s fastest and Europe’s longest zip line, or explore the slate caverns while on a trampoline, they’ve got it. I could go on forever!
Unfortunately i don’t have any photos, except for the obligatory group photo. To find out more information you can visit their website: https://www.zipworld.co.uk/. There’s plenty of photos there *rolls eyes.
It can be quite daunting when you first enter, but you don’t even realise you’re underground. When I entered the caves and stepped onto the bouncy nets, I was holding onto the sides for dear life. The kids are fearless! Bounce Below isn’t just for kids, so I was quite surprised when I saw groups of the older generation. At one point, a group of men in their 50’s were bouncing chaotically and I went flying, all was good though. I had a soft landing.
A two hour session was priced at £25, bit expensive for what it was because all you did was jump up and down, go down a 60ft slide. However, we engaged with the staff as they had a ball and started playing dodgeball. It was quite exhausting! Remember, you’re in a cave so the temperature can get quite cold. But if you’re active for the whole two hours then you can get a bit er, sweaty.
If you don’t fancy having a bounce around, there is a cafe with locally sourced food, as well as tea and cake. It’s a splendid outing for the family. So, if you’re in North wales for the weekend, i’d recommend you stop by.
