Zip World

The Zip World story – the company going downhill fast!

About Sean Taylor

Sean Taylor, North Wales born and bred, spent his early years as a Royal Marines commando followed by a stint as bodyguard. He then returned home to North Wales in 2007 and opened Tree Top Adventure, near the tourist town of Betws y Coed. This attraction soon became one of the most popular high rope adventure courses in the UK.

Zip World came about through a dream of building one of the biggest zip lines in the world over a quarry. The dream came to fruition in March 2013 after 2 years in planning and construction.

Over the past 5 years, Sean has continued to develop the business with passion through inspiring PR stunts, continual innovation and working closely with local communities.

In just 5 years, Zip World has gone from strength to strength, growing exponentially each year in offering, turnover and brand presence in the industry. Opening the fastest zip line in the world in 2013, with 9 staff operating from a porta cabin in a quarry, the company has grown to well over 300 employees, 3 sites operating 11 unique adventures, a 150 cover restaurant and corporate meeting space.
