StreetGames Wales are holding an exciting event at the National Diving & Activity Centre (NDAC) in April.
The StreetGames Wales Volunteer Fest!
Invited guests will be spending a day at the NDAC for a free action packed day of activities at the NDAC to thank their existing volunteers and bring along new ones!
StreetGames volunteers will have the opportunity to experience a segway driving adventure, water walking, The Wire (one of the longest and fastest zip wires in the UK running the length of the spectacular quarry beneath the centre) as well as other activities. There will be a chance to relax after your busy day finishing with a BBQ at the View Cafe bar and outdoor cinema experience.
Street Games is a national sports charity that changes lives and communities. They do it by supporting a network of projects which give sports and volunteering opportunities to young people in disadvantaged communities across the UK. Doorstep sport is StreetGames’ delivery method, whereby they bring sport close to the home in disadvantaged communities at the right time, for the right price, to the right place and in the right style.

You may have noticed that the Wire Zip Slide has been closed for most of February whilst we have been making some improvements.
We have had some landing break arms produced and they were delivered and installed recently by crane.
This means that we now have improved braking at the end of your 700m zip slide ride which will allow us to operate during stronger tail winds and for more of the year.
The works have all been completed now and the Wire is back open now and available for bookings. We have dates available between now and the end of August.

The Wire is one of the UK’s longest, tallest and fastest zip slides, running the 700 metre length of the spectacular NDAC Quarry.
Launch yourself from the 70m high cliff edge and speed along the length of our 80m deep flooded quarry.
Reaching speeds up to 40 miles per hour this exhilarating ride will take your breath away!
