Tourism Students Visit Adventure Tourism Hot-spot

20 November 2015

School of Management and Business Tourism Management students recently visited Llechwedd Slate Caverns, home of the famous ‘Zipworld’ and ‘Bounce Below’.

The adventure tourism students visited the site in Blaenau Ffestiniog where they were treated to a talk by Sean Taylor, commercial director of Zipworld, one of the most successful adventure tourism developments in the world in recent years.

After the talk some of the students visited in the ‘Bounce Below’ activity, a maze of trampolines in underground caverns, another exciting and popular development.

At the extreme end of adventure Simon Williams explained the development of the downhill mountain bike facility Antur Stiniog, and the importance of these activities in regenerating local communities.
