Ride the world’s only people-powered rollercoaster!

North Wales has a wide range of fantastic attractions that can be enjoyed by the whole family. Nestled in the beautiful landscape on the outskirts of Snowdonia National Park is Greenwood Forest Park, which is less than a 10-minute drive from Caernarfon. This eco-park has been voted the best family attraction in North Wales, and offers a whole host of active adventures for families to enjoy, from jungle boating, den building or even an exhilarating ride on the ‘Green Dragon’ – the world’s only people powered rollercoaster.
Gypsy Wood is an enchanting woodland attraction full of magical things to see and do. Take a ride on Woody’s garden railway, or hunt for fairies in the 20 acres of natural forest. Gypsy Wood is located just outside Caernarfon, and offers a fantastic value family day out, in a beautiful setting.
If you are looking for something with a little more action, try a visit to Glasfryn Parc where you can feed your need for speed with go-karting, quad biking and water sports. The park is just 15 miles from Caernarfon, just east of the seaside town of Pwllheli.
If you fancy trying something a little different, there is an array of attractions which take some of North Wales’ most distinctive historic features and gives them an endorphin-inducing injection of action and adventure. Zip world at Bethesda is home to the longest zip line in the northern hemisphere, suspended 500ft over the historic Penrhyn slate quarry. A little further afield in Blaenau Ffestiniog, which is about a 45-minute drive from Caernarfon, you will find Bounce Below. This is an incredible “subterranean playground” where giant trampolines, nets and slides are suspended within an underground slate cavern. This unique adventure attraction is well worth a visit and has now been extended to include a junior area, suitable for children as young as three.
