The longest zip line in the world!
As often in the United Arab Emirates, a new world record has been broken and now held by the Emirates. Very often, it is Dubai that wins these records, for example the world record for the largest commercial with the Dubai Mall or the world record for the tallest tower with the Burj Khalifa.
Well this time, it is the neighboring emirate of Ras al Khaimah who is talking about him by winning the record for the largest zip line in the world ! The Toro Verde zipline of Ras al Khaimah is located on the Jebel Jais which is neither more nor less than the highest mountain in the United Arab Emirates with almost 2000 meters of altitude!
Here are some features about the Jebel Jais zipline:
- over 2800 meters in length
- a departure at an altitude of 1680 meters
- during the descent, the speed increases up to 120/150 km / h depending on the person and the wind
The duration of the Jebel Jais zipline flight is therefore 2 to 3 minutes! To be even more fun, the Jebel Jais zip line allows you to:
- to set off at the same time, side by side
- start on your stomach to make the experience even more impressive!
To fully appreciate the impressive length of this largest zipline in the world, its 2,800 meters represent no more and no less than 28 football pitches lengthwise.
Go to Toro Verde, the Jebel Jais zipline in Ras al Khaimah
The largest zipline in the world is therefore located on the Jebel Jais in the emirate of Ras al Khaimah. The Toro Verde UAE Zipline is about an hour's drive from the center of Ras al Khaimah town. Jebel Jais is located near the Omani border which leads to the Musandam Peninsula.
From Dubai, it will therefore take around 2 hours by car to reach the start of the largest zipline in the world located on the slopes of Jebel Jais, near the summit.
