(CARDIFF, Wales) — Three giant trampolines deep inside an old mining cavern are the latest attraction drawing tourists to Northern Wales.
Claiming to be “twice the size of [London's] St. Paul’s Cathedral,” Bounce Below opened July 4 at the Zip World Titan, located in Llechwedd Slate Caverns near the mining town of Blaenau Ffestiniog.
It’s the “world’s first subterranean playground of its kind,” reads the web site. “These huge trampoline like nets are hung within two vast chambers at varying levels, linked together by walkways and slides, the biggest of which is a 60 foot slide.To add to the already awesome experience, the cavern is lit up with a technicolor light display that illuminates the cavern with vibrant colors showing off the remains of the Victorian slate mine.”
Cost of admission is about $25.
Zip World Titan was already the home to the Titan, the “largest zip zone in the world.”
