Betws-y-Coed - It's truly Epic

After our massive EPIC letters did the rounds this summer, they’ve since had a legendary makeover.  They’ve now moved North and are now being hosted at the location of the epic new alpine rollercoaster – Fforest Coaster at Zip World.

From the people who brought you the soaring adventures at Zip World Velocity, Zip World Titan, Zip World Caverns and Bounce Below, the new attraction sits at the entrance to Betws-y-Coed’s newest addition to the adventure capital of North Wales

Zipping and weaving between the trees, the alpine coaster whizzes through woodland on an outdoor rail, offering you the chance to ride alone or with another.

The new EPIC letters, measuring 4 meters high and 11 meters wide, are coated in legendary icons of people, myths and places that make Wales unique.  Visitors will also be able to read all about the stories behind the legends via base of the sign and view the new campaign film featuring Luke Evans via a QR code printed on the sign.


Zip World’s Forest coaster is the latest in the line of up an exciting clutch of adventure activities and experiences in and around Betws-y-Coed in the heart of Snowdonia

Surrounded by woodlands, hilltop lakes and waterfalls, the town is a hive for walkers and hikers.  It’s also perfectly situated for days out to nearby UNESCO site Conwy Castle, Capel Curig (a walker’s paradise within Snowdonia National Park) and Blaenau Ffestiniog.

Closer still to Betws-Y-Coed are Swallow Falls, a craggy and rugged beauty spot and the picture-postcard beauty of the old ‘Ty Hwnt i’r Bont’ (Beyond the Bridge) Tearooms in Llanrwst.  Covered in a shock of red leaves each Autumn, photographers flock to the spot to capture the views of the 15th century stone cottage where you can sample a taste of Wales.
