Principality Stadium announces opening date for huge zip wire

The opening date of a huge new zip wire attraction at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium has been announced. The exhilarating attraction will allow guests to climb and zip line from one of the iconic masts at the world famous stadium, offering them an unparalleled view of Wales’ capital.

Work on SCALE, a partnership between Principality Stadium and aerial adventure experts Wire & Sky, started in August 2023 and looks set to open this month. Stadium officials have confirmed the one-of-a-kind attraction in Wales will open to the public on Monday, April 29.

Scale is comprised of three parts. The first segment is ‘the climb’, where thriller-seekers will ascend 15 flights of stairs to the stadium’s rooftop. From here there is a walkway which juts out over the River Taff and towers 35m above it.

They can walk across the roof’s edge and take in a bird’s eye view of the pitch and 75,000-seater stadium below. The second part is ‘the zip wire’, which involves scaling the stadium’s mast and zooming through the air on a zip wire.

And in the third and final section ‘the drop’ visitors will abseil back to the ground. According to Scale’s website people can choose whether they just complete the climb or add on the other elements individually or together.

The attraction will be based on the Taff Embankment side of the stadium

With the stadium’s busy schedule, organisers say alternative climbs will run when the stadium bowl is in use for events. Priority bookings for SCALE open on April 3 exclusively for those who have purchased vouchers. Public bookings open on April 4. It will cost £89 to do all three adventures, with prices for the experience starting at £44 for the climb element alone.

SCALE prices:

Climb – £44

Climb & Drop – £59

Climb & Zip – £74

Climb, Zip, Drop – £89

Welsh Rugby Union CEO Abi Tierney said: “We are thrilled to announce the opening of SCALE in line with Principality Stadium’s 25-year anniversary. Our rooftop attraction in the heart of Wales merges the excitement of adventure sports with the rich heritage of our iconic stadium.”

Wire and Sky have developed similar rooftop experiences on a number of venues across the UK including Anfield Stadium and Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Andy Broad, managing director said they are “delighted to expand our offering to the Welsh capital and allow the public to see Cardiff from a totally new perspective.
