Heart Thumping Action in the UAE

Adrenalin-junkies will love Ras Al Khaimah’s new Jebel Jais Flight zipline, which was recently named the world’s longest by the Guinness World Records. The multi-million dollar attraction now means thrill-seekers can travel at speeds of up to 150kph at a height of 1,680 metres above sea level from the top of Jebel Jais mountain. The zipline, which measures 2.83 kilometers – the equivalent of 28 soccer fields – is operated by Toroverde Ras Al Khaimah, among the world’s most experienced zipline managers. Action seekers are suspended above the mountain as they prepare to take the flight headfirst in a ‘superman’ style position; participants wear a special suit for the flight, which takes approximately two to three minutes. Once completed, guests will finish the bucket list flight on a suspended landing platform – unique in the world – where they will be transferred to a second line, measuring 1km in length, to complete their journey back to the ground.
