XDubai launches longest urban zip line in the world

XDubai has unveiled its newest zip line in Dubai. Hailed as the longest urban zip line in the world, XLine measures 17 kilometres, has an incline of 16 per cent, and travels at an average speed of 80 kilometres an hour.

Following the footsteps of the original XLine which launched at The Dubai Mall in 2015, and travels over the Dubai Fountain, the new XLine is double the length. The line also allows people to travel in twos alongside each other thanks to two parallel zip lines.

Starting from one of the Amwaj towers in the Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR), participants will soar 170 metres in the air, winding in and out of skyscrapers, across water, and down to the terrace of Dubai Marina Mall. They will be strapped into superman style harnesses, which allows zipliners to pretend to be superheroes as they fly through the air above the bustling city of Dubai.

“We wouldn’t be XDubai if we didn’t push the limits of what is possible.”

Stated Mohammed Javad, the General Manager of XDubai.

“Following the success of the first XLine, we wanted to step it up more than a notch and importantly, give both residents and visitors to Dubai the opportunity to have a true-to-form XDubai experience. The result is like nothing else – two ziplines - the world’s longest in an urban setting, in one of the world’s most vibrant neighbourhoods.”

Last month, the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah announced the launch of the longest zip line in the world. The line is also the highest in the world and is located on Jebel Jais, the highest peak in the United Arab Emirates.

Dubai is renowned for its world firsts, world’s largest and world’s fastest attractions and activities. It boasts the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa; the largest shopping Mall, Dubai Mall; the largest indoor theme park, the IMG Worlds of Adventure; and the world’s largest picture frame, the Dubai Frame which opened last month. The emirate is renowned for its record-breaking attempts such as the biggest fireworks display in the world and it is currently building the world’s tallest skyscraper.
