Take a Wembley Tour and zipwire over Wembley Stadium

Imagine standing 30 metres above the famous Wembley Stadium pitch then hurtling across it at speeds of 25 miles per hour along 200 metres of high density zip wire.

Soon, thrill seekers, football fans and international visitors alike will be able to take a unique journey across one of the most iconic stadiums in the world, thanks to Wembley Stadium.

So, if you are looking for an exhilarating adventure then here’s your chance. This August, for one week only, Wembley Stadium is giving fans the chance to test their nerve and enjoy one of the ultimate adrenaline experiences the city has to offer.

The Zip Wire experience was developed by Zip Slides UK, the country’s leading provider of temporary zip wire events who have delivered over 100 successful events across numerous high profile venues, including 20 top flight football clubs.

Once visitors have caught their breath they will also receive a behind-the-scenes tour of the stadium where they will be able to enjoy the Exhibition of Champions, the England changing rooms, players’ tunnel and Wembley’s famous Royal Box.

Managing Director of Wembley Stadium, Roger Maslin, said: “Wembley Stadium has always been renowned for providing football and music fans with an incredible range of emotions from the emphatic highs of teams winning to watching your favourite band perform on stage.

"We welcome the new Zip Wire experience to Wembley and believe it will be an exciting addition to the stadium and go some way in replicating the adrenaline felt by fans during matches and events at the stadium.”

Also, in another first for the stadium, the opening day of the Zip Wire tour will be streamed live exclusively on Twitter. To catch all the action on Thursday 16th August make sure you follow @WembleyStadium
