As anticipation builds for the Summer ahead, Northern Ireland’s leading outdoor adventure park, Colin Glen has launched a school’s competition to name its three newest attractions.
The West Belfast community trust is calling on school children across Northern Ireland to submit their ideas for naming Northern Ireland’s first alpine coaster and Northern Ireland’s longest zipline ahead of their official opening in May 2021 (subject to government restrictions). The prize? A free day of adventure at Colin Glen for their whole class!
As Northern Ireland’s first and only alpine coaster, this adrenaline-pumping woodland course will see visitors zooming through the dense woods of Colin Glen forest at 25 miles per hour, twisting and turning through tunnels and trees to experience the outdoors like never before!
The all new 235m and 700m ziplines at Colin Glen will also offer thrill-seekers the unique chance to skim the treetops as they soar above the Belfast skyline at speeds of up to 55mph.
Announcing the competition today, Colin Glen Chief Executive, Colin O’Neillsays, “We offer adventures for all, and we want our world-class attractions to be shared by everyone, right down to their names! That’s where our local schools come in, and we can’t wait to read everyone’s creative entries.”
