Skydriver takes on TITAN with ISC ZipSpeed Trolley
We've been working to provide ZipWorld with Zip Trolleys for many years now and we've come to associate ZipWorld for their 'out of the box' thinking, when it comes to adventure and entertainment in North Wales.
Their latest stunt saw ZipWorld TITAN and host site LLechwedd Slate Caverns, teamed up with Day Insure Wales Rally GB Team, to create #Skydrive. This world-first stunt involved rally driver Matt Edwards driving his rally car down the ZipWorld Alpha track. Pretty awesome, yet standard...so far!
What came next was far from standard, to say the least! Phase two of Matt's journey around the ZipWorld TITAN site involved sending Matt down the Zipline...whilst still in his car! That's right...a car flying down a zipline!
Aided by a crane, the car was lifted in to position and attached to two of the four, parallel ziplines at the ZipWorld TITAN site and secured to four ISC ZipSpeed-L (RP076) Trolleys.
You can see the awesome video footage of the actual stunt, in the main video below. You can also click here for behind the scenes shots, showing how the ZipWorld, Llechwedd and DayInsure Rally GB team made #Skydrive happen!
Once again, we're left thinking, 'whatever next ZipWorld?'!
