The Zip Now London event in Archbishop’s Park has now closed. We had a hot and sunny 16 weeks in London with over 55,000 riders enjoying the biggest, fastest city-centre zip wire in the world.

We’re proud to have hosted hundreds of charities and the world’s first augmented reality zip wire experience. We’ve also had visitors from over 64 countries ride with us.

We will be opening our next exciting zip wire soon, so sign up to our newsletter to make sure you are the first to know where to find us next. You can find out more about Zip Now London on our ABOUT page.

Are your photos with the London Eye in the background fake?
Absolutely not! We love this composition but it’s really easy to get the same photo yourself: If you stand on the eastern edge of Archbishop’s Park you will see the zip wire and London Eye align to recreate this great photo yourself Please note, this is NOT the photograph taken by our automatic photo system, which shoots head-on photos as riders come in to the landing tower

What view do you get?
– Our 35 meter launch tower gives you a unique perspective on London that will disappear on 9th September – The launch tower faces south-west, so you’ll be looking towards Vauxhall, Battersea, Victoria and on the horizon Crystal Palace and even the Surrey Hills! Closer by, you’ll see the London Eye, the Palace of Westminster’s Victoria Tower and the river Thames – Views north east towards the city of London, and north west towards Big Ben can be seen once zipping
How long does the experience take?
From check-in to de-kitting, the full experience can take as little as 45 minutes on a quiet day. On busier summer days and weekends, the full process can take about 90 minutes, so please be aware of this when making dinner reservations or transport arrangements. Add-ons such as second rides, mega-drops etc will increase the length of your experience. The zip wire ride itself takes about 20-30 seconds from launch to brakes. Nothing this fun can last forever!
