Are you game enough to zip between some of the tallest skyscrapers in the world at 80 kilometres per hour, while travelling at about 560 feet in the air?

Some of the wildest daredevils may even hesitate with Dubai’s newest attraction, which has been dubbed one of the longest and wildest zip lines in the world.

Called the XLine, it opened earlier this month to compliment an existing zip line located near the tallest skyscraper, Burj Khalifa.

However, unlike the two-year old line, the XLine travels further for 3,280 feet and faster at 80 kilometres per hour. It also features two parallel lines so crazy couples can fly together over Dubai’s Marina AND it has an incline of 16-degrees.


Brave souls helped launch Dubai’s newest activity last week, including the city’s Crowned Prince Sheikh Hamdan.

It’s time for a new exciting adventure from @x_line #zipline #MyDubai @uncle_saeed ????

The guys behind the wild ride, XDubai, said the aim was to “push the limited of what is possible” and give riders the chance to “have a true-to-form XDubai experience”.

Prices for the zip line start at DHS650 (AU$235).
