The “Jebel Jais Flight” is a zip line ride at Jebel Jais, the highest mountain range in the UAE. Spanning a lengthy, adrenaline-pumping ride of 2,832 metres — it is the longest zip line in the world! In fact, it has been certified just recently by the Guinness World Records.

Jebel Jais Flight: The Longest Zip Line in the World

The Jebel Jais Flight opened last December 2017. It is actually “split” into two stretches. The first stretch begins on a platform at the very top of the mountain. Riders are strapped into a harness, then launched head-first into a 2,832-metre cable ride, with speeds up to 150 km/h!

The second stretch takes place in the middle of the mountain range, where another platform hangs suspended in the air. From here, riders are hung from a pulley as they traverse a one-kilometre stretch downwards until they reach the ground.
