Mountain karting opens in Welsh quarry
The company behind the fastest zip line in the world and underground bouncy nets has just launched its latest attraction in time for summer 2019, the UK’s only mountain kart experience.
The new attraction, Quarry Karts, is situated on the edge of the historic Penrhyn slate quarry and will allow visitors to challenge their rivals at speeds of up to 40mph in a three-wheeled mountain buggy.
All while taking in the breathtaking Welsh views which could soon be classed as a World Heritage site rivalling the scenery of the Grand Canyon and the Great Barrier Reef.
On the new £1 million adrenaline experience riders will make their way down the three-kilometre dirt track which starts at 1,500ft+ above sea level at a 10% gradient, overcoming a series of obstacles on the way, including chicanes, tunnels and banked corners.
