Thrill seekers can get their fix by strapping into a harness, launching themselves off a 70-metre high cliff and reaching speeds of up to 40mph during a run on The Wire at the National Diving and Activity Centre. Gliding for a length of 700 metres, zip sliders will be able to take in the epic sight of the flooded quarry and its attractions 80 metres beneath them. Friends can even catch the action from a dedicated viewing platform halfway along The Wire.
