UAE introduces record breaking world’s longest thrilling zip line in Ras Al-Khaimah

RAS KHAIMAH: The United Arab Emirates claimed a record on Thursday with the opening of the world’s longest zip line, measuring 2.83 kilometres in length.

Guinness World Records officials certified the zip line in Ras al-Khaimah on the same day the attraction opened to the public.

The Jebel Jais Flight takes thrill-seekers atop the country’s largest mountain peak, from a launch pad 1,680 metres (5,512 feet) above sea level.

For approximately 3 minutes, riders are suspended above the mountain as they glide past rocky terrain.

It’s the latest fascination by the smaller, lesser-known emirate of Ras al-Khaimah to attract more tourists and expatriate visitors from neighboring areas like Abu Dhabi and Dubai, which recently opened the world’s longest urban zip line whizzing past towering skyscrapers.

A temporary zip line attraction last year hoisted riders with a close view of Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest tower.
