Ride the longest urban zip line for less next week…

Daredevils of Dubai will be pleased to know that the longest urban zip line, XLine Dubai Marina, is offering a cool 30 per cent discount on rides from Thursday May 30 until Saturday June 8. The exhilarating ride will see you zooming past the skyscrapers of Dubai Marina and soaring above rippling waters and hundreds of yachts.

This zip line allows adrenaline junkies to ride Superman-style, belly down, as they zip from one of the Amwaj towers in JBR, 170 metres in the air, down to the terrace of Dubai Marina Mall. The line totals at 1km in length with an incline of 16° and reaches speeds of an average of 80 kilometres per hour.

Not only do you get to enjoy the thrilling ride for less, you can share the joy with a friend as well. The Double Trouble line allows friends to zipline parallel to each other, making the experience twice as fun.

For a solo ride you’d normally pay Dhs650 but during Eid the price drops to Dhs455. And, if you want to share the experience, you can opt for the double ride which is now Dhs840 instead of Dhs1200.

While it might seem like a heart-racing experience, if it’s good enough for HH Sheikh Hamdan, it’s good enough for us…

XLine, Dubai Marina, 9am to 1pm Sun to Tues, closed Wednesday, 9am to 1pm Thurs to Sat, Dhs455 single, Dhs840 couple. Tel: (04) 457 3212. xdubai.com/xline
