A zip line is set to open across Dubai Marina, landing on the roof of Marina Mall.

XDubai, the firm responsible for the launch of the XLine zip line over The Dubai Fountain back in 2015, has unveiled branding in the Marina advertising the launch of the city’s newest attraction.

Only this time, a tandem XLine has been unveiled, allowing two zip liners to rocket across the waters simultaneously. And you won’t be sitting up – you’ll be lying down, superman style.

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.

Though lines first appeared across the Marina several weeks ago, branding was only finally unveiled on Saturday November 11, and prices and timings are yet to be revealed.

Stay close to Time Out Dubai for more details as they’re announced.

Already wired about Dubai’s newest attraction? Another huge zip line – more than 2,530 metres long, beating the current world record holder – is set to open just an hour away from Dubai in Ras Al Khaimah before the end of the year. It’s also expected to be the world’s highest zip line, positioned on one of Jebel Jais’ tallest points, almost 2,000 metres above sea level, and is expected to accommodate up to 120,000 people a year when it opens, with two parallel wires.
