The launch of Zip World’s Skyflyer attraction in Rhyl has been “postponed until further notice” due to an “engineering and design challenge”. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

A new “first-of-its-kind” airship adventure – giving 360-degree views of the region’s coastline – was set to fly above Rhyl from Wednesday, August 3. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The opening date was initially given as July 6 by Zip World but was delayed. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

In a statement on social media today,  Zip World said: “We are sorry to announce that the launch of our newest attraction, Skyflyer, has been postponed until further notice.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“During our rigorous testing process, we identified an engineering and design challenge which will need to be addressed before our customers can enjoy the attraction.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The statement goes on to say: “We will announce a new date for launching Skyflyer once we are satisfied it meets our standards.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“At Zip World we strive to bring our customers unique and world-first experiences, and we’re looking forward to adding Skyflyer to our growing list of attractions as soon as we can.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“We apologise again for the inconvenience this has caused. Customers with bookings for Skyflyer will be contacted directly by us by August 1st to arrange postponements or refunds.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

According to Zip World’s website, the attraction will fly up to 400ft in the air,“and take in all the sights on offer along the North Wales coast – even as far as Liverpool on a clear day!” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
