Bookings are now open for the long-awaited, and hugely anticipated, XLine Dubai Marina.
It’s the world’s longest urban zipwire, coming in at 1km, where thrill seekers from across the country will come and experience speeds of up to 80kmh, whooshing through the Marina at an incline of 16 degrees.
Now, you can book your place on the zipwire, alongside your buddy, because there are two concurrent wires – and each of them will film your journey to the bottom, thanks to GoPros mounted on your helmet, capturing your journey from the top of the Amwaj towers in JBR through to the terrace of Dubai Marina Mall.
“Following the success of the first XLine, we wanted to step it up more than a notch and importantly, give both residents and visitors to Dubai the opportunity to have a true-to-form XDubai experience,” said Mohammed Javad, general manager of XDubai. “The result is like nothing else – two ziplines – the world’s longest in an urban setting, in one of the world’s most vibrant neighbourhoods.”
XLine Dubai Marina follows in the footsteps of the line that opened for a limited-time run at The Dubai Mall back in late 2015, swooping over the Dubai Fountain, and offering some stunning views. The new zipline is promising equally inspiring vistas, and a line that’s double the length of the original.
It’s now possible to book your place on the zipwire, with prices starting at Dhs650 per person, or Dhs1,200 per couple. Everyone who hits the zips will get a personalised video, thanks to aforementioned GoPro, plus a tonne of photos from your experience.
We’ll see you there.
From Dhs650. Sun-Thu 10am-6pm, Fri-Sat 10am-7pm. Dubai Marina, www.xdubai.com/xline.
