Take in the UAE’s tallest mountain in the most exciting way with Jebel Jais Flight! This attraction at the ecological adventure park of Toroverde Ras al Khaimah is the Guinness World Records holder for the longest zipline in the world, as it beats Puerto Rico’s Monster Zipline of 2,530-meter-long. After all, it extends for an enormous 2,832 meters, lengthier than the size of 28 soccer pitches put together.
The experience begins as you ride up to the mountains of Jebel Jais, but the real adventure begins as you step on to the launch platform which is built on to one of the country’s high-altitude points. Perched at an exhilarating height of 1,680 meters, this massive falcon-shaped, transparent platform is complete with twin cable zips that are parallel to each other, allowing you to enjoy this activity with your equally adventurous companion.
There will be a quick chat over safety measures with a team of certified ziplining experts always by your side. Once you’re ready and get harnessed up to the line, you’ll leap into the open air and fly like a superhero with your belly down. Zip through the sturdy cable lines at an astonishing speed of about 130 kilometers / hour and relish the most spellbinding aerial views as you soar across the majesty of Jebel Jais and Al Hatta Mountains for more than three minutes.
One of the most jaw-dropping moments is when you land on to another suspended platform of 1280 meters high. It literally dangles in the air and excites you with the second adventure as you’re transferred to a one-kilometer-long line while being attached to a pulley, with which you’ll complete this once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
