Plans for an incredible 650m zip line adventure experience have been received by North Yorkshire Council for Scarborough North Bay.
If approved, the zip line would include a launch and a landing tower situated on the former site known as Marvel’s Amusement Park, which is at the moment a disused hilltop site.
If approved the site would see a 650m with a total of four wires interconnecting the two towers, and also a ‘drop’ ride for the landing tower for those who have already ridden the zip wire.
The site would also have reception and safety areas and containers, marquees, gazebos, and toilets.
The ‘Scaborough Heights’ site would be located south of Scalby Mills Miniature Railway Station, according to Big Bang Promotions and would be open at 8am at the earliest and close between 5pm and 8pm depending on the season and day of week.
The route would “sail over open space for the first 350 metres then over the disused crazy golf course running adjacent to the light railway on one side and the promenade on the other for the last 300 metres”.
Both the launch and landing towers have been used in Lambeth Park in London, so are already constructed.
And, according to the planning documents submitted to North Yorkshire Council, could be erected in two weeks and removed in a shorter time frame.
The application says the 650m zip line “fits with the Scarborough Borough Council masterplan for the North Bay and the initial lease has been agreed for a three-year period”.
The develepment does not intend to propose any changes to the landscape or location and the steel frames would reach 33m high for launch tower and 17m high for the landing tower.
The application is currently pending consideration with North Yorkshire Council and the local planning authority.
