Zip World in Llanrwst, Conwy Valley, has partnered with Revl, adventure tech giants from Silicon Valley, to offer visitors advanced and personalised video and photo footage of their experience at the award-winning adventure site.
Using artificial intelligence, hardware and software, Revl’s automated video solution captures visitors as they fly down zip wires and speed round Mountain and Coaster Kart tracks.
The innovative videoing solution effectively does the job of five video editors in one system, which involves visitors wearing cameras on their helmets as they participate in Zip World’s activities.
Guests can take home multiple clips, edits, photos and boomerangs of the fun they had at Conwy Valley’s Zip World.
Revl’s partnership with Zip World in Wales is the start of the company’s push to expand in the European market.
Eric Sanchez, co-founder and CEO of Revl, shared his enthusiasm for the partnership with Zip World in Wales.
“We’re delighted to be basing ourselves in Llanrwst for the foreseeable future and are excited to embark on a European takeover in adventure experiences.
“We might be used to the dizzy heights of San Francisco – and the technological advances of Silicon Valley, but we’re excited to be at the forefront of adventure sites in the UK.
“It’s hard not to fall in love with the scenic mountains, lakes and Conwy River – they have a charm of their own.
“We’ve left the Silicon Valley smog behind and the fresh Welsh mountain air has switched on our ambition and drive to further our European market.”
Sean Taylor, co-founder and president of Zip World, shares Sanchez’s excitement, saying:
“We’re flattered by this amazing partnership with Revl and delighted to make them welcome in our home of North Wales. Whilst we offer the most comprehensive outdoor adventure experiences in the UK, we’re always looking for opportunities to increase customer experience.
“Visitors to our sites want to re-live their time with us – as well as showing off to their friends and family that they’re living their best lives!
“So the opportunity to film, record, edit and share quickly is paramount. The ease in which your video can be shared across social media is hugely important to our customers too, which is why we choose this tech,” Taylor added.
