New Zip World Attraction to Take Off at Rhyl Coast

  • Blimp-like airship will fly up to 400ft with 360-degree views
  • Fully accessible attraction will be 23rd adventure launched by Zip World
  • Skyflyer is a UK-exclusive and is also dog friendly

 UK-based adventure company Zip World will soon be flying high above Rhyl, with the introduction of their 23rd adventure, Skyflyer.

Located at the Zip World Rhyl site along the beachfront, the flagship attraction airship will be the ultimate sight-seeing adventure.

Set to launch to the public from 11th March 2023, visitors will be elevated 400ft in the air to soak up panoramic views of the stunning north Wales coast, Liverpool, the Isle of Man and beyond.

The blimp-like aerostat is the latest ground-breaking innovation in the arena of adventure activity attractions and is a UK-exclusive.

The attraction has been designed to be accessible to all, including wheel-chair users and features other disability-support equipment.


Zip World Founder and president Sean Taylor said: “We’re proud to be bringing this  sight-seeing adventure to the ever-growing town of Rhyl. The North Wales coastline boasts some of the best views in the country and we’re looking forward to welcoming locals and visitors alike to soak up the scenery.”

The Zip World Rhyl site will join the company’s three other sites in North Wales, one in South Wales, and two in the North of England with more attractions planned for 2023.

Best known for the world’s fastest zip line in Penrhyn Quarry, which reaches speeds of 100mph, the adventure company has helped to put Wales firmly on the map as an adventure hub.


Jamie Groves, Managing Director of Denbighshire Leisure Ltd, said: “Following the success of all the company investments in Rhyl, we are thrilled to be working in partnership with such a highly regarded brand as Zip World to deliver this new attraction and hospitality offer next door to the Rhyl Pavilion.

“This is a fantastic new partnership and a great endorsement for the strength of the brands working together.

“Attracting a brand such as Zip World truly demonstrates Rhyl is the up-and-coming destination, and the place to invest.

“Reaching from Moel Famau, to the Great Orme in Llandudno, all the way to Liverpool and Ireland on a clear day, this experience is one not to be missed for couples, families, day-trippers and holidaymakers.

“We cannot wait for visitors to experience Skyflyer, taking off from Rhyl this spring!”

“With plenty of parking nearby, and a plethora of shops, and entertainment; and of course, visitors will have the added opportunity of trying the flagship restaurant 1891.”


Tickets are now on sale via the Zip World website. Prices start at £20, and children under 3 years go free (proof of age is required on check-in).

Skyflyer has been designed for solo travellers, couples and families alike, and will be available for private hire too.

Locals to Skyflyer can take advantage of Zip World’s Local’s Loyalty scheme which offers discounts on adventures at Zip World if you live in an eligible postcode during certain times of year.
