The United Arab Emirates did it again, breaking yet another Guinness World Record by opening the world’s longest zipline in the northernmost emirate of Ras al-Khaimah.

 

Jebel Jais Flight allows thrill-seekers to soar from the country’s largest mountain peak for nearly three minutes, suspended while gliding through rocky terrain.

 

Measuring 1.76 miles long, this zipline stretches longer than 28 football fields, and crushes the former record holders in Puerto Rico and New Zealand by 2’000 feet.

 

This zipline requires a body harnes and separate foot strap meaning users fly head first facing the ground over mountains, roads and landmarks.

 

By opening the new attraction, Ras al-Khaimah hopes to step out of the shadow of its big neighbor Dubai and become a must-visit destination for global adventure tourists.

 

The easy access to desert, beach, and mountains makes this small emirate worth the trip.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Al-Sahawat Times than ever but advertising revenues across the global media industry are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a total paywall. We want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Al-Sahawat Times’ independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe truly ethical media and an unbias perspective really matters.

“I appreciate there not being a paywall: it is more democratic for the media to be available for all and not a commodity to be purchased by a few. I’m happy to make a contribution so others with less means still have access to information.”

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, the future of ethical media and the futures of our staff and their families would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support Al-Sahawat Times and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
