England’s longest and fastest zipline is set to open to the public on Monday (June 28).

Hangloose Skywire will be the first attraction to open at Bluewater's new Hangloose Adventure, which is set to become the biggest adventure centre in Europe.

The original opening date had been set for May but a series of delays pushed that back by a couple of months.

Participants will get to take in breathtaking views of the Bluewater surroundings

The zipline is a whopping 725 meters long and will take you across some stunning lakes on your breathtaking journey.

It’s been nearly two years since the plans were put forward to bring the experience to the shopping centre near Dartford.

Last month, KentLive was given early access to see what the zipwire would look like.

It's certainly not for the faint-hearted and those brave enough to take it on will reach speeds of 60mph.

What will the adventure park contain?

The adventure park will be situated among the 50 acres of parkland at Bluewater, which has recently been awarded Green Flag status for the fifth year in a row.

Though the zipline will open in June, it will have more attractions joining in the following 36 months.

These include an outdoor skydive machine, Europe’s largest swing and Europe’s largest outdoor climbing wall.

The climbing wall will make use of the cliffs surrounding Bluewater to create a range of fun-filled activities for all fitness levels as climbing becomes an Olympic sport for the first time in 2021.

Speaking earlier this year, Robert Goodman, senior centre director of Bluewater said: “As Bluewater evolves, we continue to create stand out experiences for our guests.

"We are delighted that the new Hangloose Adventure enables us to do this while showcasing our beautiful surroundings.

"It is a fantastic development for Kent as well as the whole of the South East and will bring visitors from all over the country to experience the thrills of England’s longest and fastest zip wire.”
