"I have just done the new zip wire safari at Via Ferrata, and it was an incredible adventure! The whole experience was truly exhilarating. The ziplines were great fun and is in a loop that I could do as many times as possible within my time slot, you’re fixed to a safety line throughout the course so you are entirely safe as you clamber along the quarry to each of the zipwires. The staff were friendly and professional, and made sure we felt safe and comfortable throughout the entire experience." - Adam, Trip Advisor
