Zip from BALTIC's Rooftop Across the River Tyne / Sun 5 March 2017
Sun 5 March 2017, 09:00 – 17:00 GMT
What better way to see the Newcastle and Gateshead skyline than by launching off the top of one of the region’s most iconic buildings. We invite all thrill seekers to zip across the River Tyne from the rooftop of BALTIC. At a whopping 45m from the ground, zippers will glide across the river on a 280m zip line experiencing speeds of up to 40mph. The perfect Christmas gift for a fearless loved-one.
If you want to take a souvenir of the zip experience home with you, you can! Purchase your GoPro film footage which captures all the action shot from your helmet during the zip.
We ask that everyone arrives promptly for their scheduled time slot. We aim for everyone to zip within an hour of their arrival.
Please note, all zippers must weigh between 7 and 18 stone. All participants are weighed prior to the zip. Anyone lighter than 7 stone or heavier than 18 stone will not be allowed to zip for health and safety reasons. If you have concerns about any medical conditions please speak to your GP prior to booking.
