World’s longest urban zipline launches in Dubai

XDubai has just launched the world’s longest urban zip line at Dubai Marina. This is also one of the steepest and fastest ziplines, measuring an astonishing 1 kilometer, with an incline of 16° and traveling at an average of 80 kilometers per hour.

The XLine follows in the footsteps of the original which launched in late 2015 at The Dubai Mall over the iconic Dubai Fountain. Building on the earlier archetype, the new XLine is double in length and offers daring duos the ability to experience it together – swiftly yet safely - through two concurrently running ziplines. Also new is the superman style harness, which allows zipliners to channel their inner superhero with an electrifying flight-like experience as they zip from a 170 meters tall skyscraper, weaving through tall buildings and across water, down to the terrace of Dubai Marina Mall, landing in close proximity to amazed bystanders.  

All those experiencing the XLine will be able to share the experience with the world through a helmet mounted Go-Pro with photos and video delivered via email following the experience.

With two ziplines running concurrently, XLine can accommodate 16 people per hour with individuals able to take the leap - or zip - with a friend, family member or colleague.  Family and friends of those ziplining will have a great vantage point from the Marina Promenade next to Dubai Marina Mall.

The cost per XLine experience will be 650 AED per person or 1200 AED for two people including a customized edited video and photos.Timings: from 10am to 6pm,  (last booking 16:30), Sunday to Thursday, and 10am – 7pm (last booking 17:30), Friday and Saturday.
