Watch: Adrenaline-filled marriage proposal at the world’s longest zipline

By

As far as unconventional marriage proposals go, this one ranks up there…

There are any number of things one expects to be after travelling down the world’s longest zipline in Ras Al Khaimah – thrilled, exhilarated and maybe just a little terrified – but ‘proposed to’ probably isn’t one of them.

But a marriage proposal is exactly what greated Susan Kuruvilla from India over the weekend, as her boyfriend, Adrian MacKay, popped the question immediately after she completed her run on the 2.83km-long zipline.

Adrian had organised the proposal with the help of the Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority and Toro Verde UAE, who arranged for a large banner displaying the words “Will you marry me?” on the side of the mountain so that Susan might have an inkling of what was about to go down as she approached the landing platform suspended high up on Jebel Jais, the UAE’s tallest mountain.

The couple are the first to propose on the popular RAK attraction that since opening to the public in February has welcomed over 10,000 visitors.

Oh, but did she say yes? You’ll have to watch the video below to find out…
