World’s longest zip line opens in UAE

The United Arab Emirates has set another record opening the world’s longest zip line, measuring 2.83 kilometers in length. Guinness World Records officials certified the zip line in Ras Al-Khaimah as the longest.

The Jebel Jais Flight takes thrill-seekers atop the country’s largest mountain peak, from a launch pad 1,680 meters (5,512 feet) above sea level. Riders are suspended above the mountain for three minutes approximately as they glide past rocky terrain.

With this latest addition, Ras Al-Khaimah is trying to attract more tourists and expatriate visitors from neighboring emirates like Abu Dhabi and Dubai, which has two separate zip line attractions whizzing past some of the world’s tallest skyscrapers.
