The UEA emirate of Ras Al Khaimah has achieved a Guinness World Records title with its latest adventure tourism product - 'Jebel Jais Flight: The World's Longest Zipline', Khaleej Times reports.
Ras Al Khaimah's new zipline was declared a world record breaker.
The line is part of a multi-million dollar tourism project and is called "The Jebel Jais Flight". The adrenaline junkie attraction will send thrill-seekers along a 6-ton cable at speeds of up to 93mph for 1.75 miles at a height of 1,680 metres above sea level at the chasm of Jebel Jais mountain, the UAE's highest peak. Maintaining sustainable environmental practices within all construction acts, strong anchor holes were drilled into the rugged Hajar Mountains that alone took over six months.
While most zip lines are over in the blink of an eye, you'll sail through the air for almost three minutes on this one, giving you ample time to drink in the views of the rocky terrain.
Once completed, guests will finish the bucket list experience on a unique suspended landing platform, where they will be transferred to a second zipline - measuring 1 km - to complete the journey to the ground. Zipline pilots will experience a flight like never before while being secure and safe.
The ride along the 1.75-mile wire lasts around three minutes and costs £124.
He also claimed that the zip-line will be able to accommodate 200 people a day and 100,000 per year. With the weather in Jebel Jais being far cooler than average temperatures of the UAE, it makes ziplining here a lot more fun, even in summer. The price is AED650 per rider.
