BBC reporter gets stuck on world's fastest zip line

Duration: 04:06

A new zip line has opened in a disused part of Penrhyn slate quarry in Bethesda, north Wales.

With speeds of more than 150 km/h (100mph) the operators say it is the longest in the northern hemisphere and the fastest in the world.

It is hoped the tourist attraction will bring a much needed boost to the local economy.

Fast Track's Joanne Whalley finds out more.
