The Zip of Terror is back this Halloween at the Castlecomer Discovery Park

Are you ready to take the Zip of Terror

The Zip of Terror is back and even more terrifying than before and is waiting for all those who are brave enough literally leap out into the darkness.   

Preparations are already under way for the Halloween experience “The Zip of Terror” and the team at Castlecomer Discovery Park can’t wait to lure you into our haunted woodlands for a truly terrifying rollercoaster of frights.

On arrival those brave enough to sign up will be taken by train to Ireland’s longest zip wire. Experienced undertakers are on hand to harness and prepare you to take a leap into the dark abyss. Will you make it down the 308 meters to the other side?  If you do, then the fun really begins with a walk through the haunted woodlands. Prepare to be terrified with ghosts, ghouls, the undead, and many more surprises. This is not for the faint hearted!

“Last year was a great success and we more excited than ever to present this event again, with lots more scares and thrills in store!” says Kathy Purcell of the Discovery Park.  

The Halloween experience at Castlecomer Discovery Park promises to be one spine-chilling experience.

“We don’t want to give away the frights that we have planned but be sure that if your haunted zip trip hasn’t petrified you enough, the walk through our woodlands will! We are gearing up to present Ireland’s best quality and scariest Halloween experience,” Peter Van De Krol of Castlecomer Discovery Park said.  

Jo McCarthy Activity Manager has found the interest growing from corporate groups.

 “We are finding many corporate groups see Halloween events as great opportunities for staff nights out, they provide the perfect combination of great fun and uniqueness”
