Night-time rides arrive at Dubai Marina zip wire

After-dark thrill-seeking teased in XDubai’s latest video

Just when you thought Dubai Marina’s XLine zip wire couldn’t get any cooler, it did.

The attraction is pretty much booked solid throughout the day, and passers-by are greeted with the sound of zips jangling and brave adventurers screaming their way down to the top of Dubai Marina Mall.

Having been open for little more than six months, XLine’s operator XDubai has released this teaser trailer for what appears to be night-time zip line fun coming to the thrill-seeking ride.

More information is set to be unveiled soon, but we’re looking forward to checking out this awesome new addition to what has become one of the city’s must-do attractions.

Running one kilometre across the Marina, the XLine promises to take riders to speeds of up to 60kph a mere 2.5 seconds from launching. Everyone who hits the zips will get a personalised video, thanks to GoPro cameras attached to riders’ helmets, plus a tonne of photos from the experience.

Here’s the video from XDubai, sent exclusively to Time Out Dubai:

And here’s what happened when we ventured up to the top of one of the Amwaj towers in JBR, where 44 floors up you begin your rapid journey down to the top of the Dubai Marina Mall.

It’s an epic journey, and one that you need to go on.

We can’t wait to find out more information on this, so stay tuned to Time Out Dubai for the latest as it emerges.
