The world’s longest zipline in Ras Al Khaimah is about to get bigger, with tourism officials announcing phase 2 of the high-flying project.

Jebel Jais Flight - which is two hours away from Dubai by car - will feature two new cables bringing capacity up to 400 people per day.

That’s 200,000 people per year flying at the speed of 150kph. That’s a lot of superman-type flying. Maybe try out the XLine zipline.

That’s not all though, as it has also been announced that night time ziplining will commence this summer, giving visitors the opportunity to enjoy incredible views in the dark during the summer months when Jebel Jais is 10 degrees cooler than sea level.

The multi-million dollar tourism project was officially handed the title of world’s longest zipline at the beginning of February.

The line spans a total of 2.83 kilometres – the equivalent of more than 28 football pitches.

Haitham Mattar, CEO of Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority said: “The opening of the world’s longest zipline has considerably aided the recognition of the destination on the global stage and demonstrated that we are upping the ante as the region’s fastest growing tourism destination.”
