RAS AL-KHAIMAH: The United Arab Emirates has set a new world record by opening the world’s longest zip line, measuring 2.83 kilometers in length.
Guinness World Records officials certified the zip line in Ras Al-Khaimah on Thursday. On the same day it served as a great attraction to the public.
The Jebel Jais Flight takes thrill-seekers on top of the country’s largest mountain peak, from a launch pad 1,680 meters (5,512 feet) above sea level. For nearly three minutes, riders are suspended above the mountain as they glide past rocky terrain.
It’s the latest effort by the smaller, lesser-known emirate of Ras Al-Khaimah to attract more tourists and expatriate visitors from neighboring emirates like Abu Dhabi and Dubai, which has two separate zip line attractions whizzing past some of the world’s tallest skyscrapers.
