This dual zip line means you can ride with family and friends, challenging them to race to the shore. Launching from the Zip Tower platform 25 metres above the sea, thrill seekers race out and “zip surf” 250 metres over the top of waves, landing on the beach. This is a truly unique and unforgettable experience, and a wonderful options for things to do in Bournemouth.
