The Silver Mountain Experience is a fantastic attraction set in the wonderful Welsh mountains just on the outside of Aberystwyth. The attraction is a medley of different experiences, ranging from a scary walk-through to a fascinating tour of the history of the old mines, dating back to 1742. We spent an afternoon exploring, and it was filled with a huge variety of things to do for all the family. We had a great time exploring Woo Hoo Woods, which is an amusing trail filled with a variety of magical creatures and different games. We got to experience the famous Dragons Tale actor led experience where you go on a hunt for a Dragon, which was great fun! The attraction is perfect for younger guests who would not be brave enough to experience Black Chasm…

Black Chasm is a quirky and sometimes very intense walk-through experience. There are dark caves, a multitude of different creatures and some funny moments that make this unique experience something you should not miss! You start off by donning a rather alluring helmet, you are then briefed before descending deep into the mines. Its dark, it’s very creepy and as the story unfolds, it certainly made us jump more than a few times. It’s a clever mix of storytelling, a scare attraction and the unique surroundings of an old silver mine. We highly recommend visiting Black Chasm if you are visiting The Silver Mountain Experience, but it is certainly not for the faint hearted. When at the park make sure you take the time to visit all of the smaller side attractions, we spent hours at the Silver River Play Area, amongst a huge variety of other things to do. If visiting Wales, you will definitely want to save a day to visit this fascinating and fun attraction.
