This is great news for outdoorsy types and thrill-seekers in the UAE - a huge series of new obstacle courses and activities is launching in Ras Al Khaimah.
The adventure emirate is already home to the world’s longest zip-line, as well as loads of incredible outdoor experiences along Jebel Jais.
The Jebel Jais Zipline Tour will feature seven different ziplines spanning a distance of more than 5km. Whizzing over cliff edges, ravines and wadis, you’ll hit an average speed of 60kph on runs spanning between 337m and 1km in length. You’ll traverse sky bridges (including one that’s 300m above the ground and 1,250m above sea level).
If you’re familiar with the area, you’ll know it’s home to some spectacular views of the UAE’s largest, and tallest, mountain range from new perspectives.
Tickets for the zipline tour start from Dhs295 per person (on Sundays, Wednesdays and Thursdays), and Dhs345 (on Fridays and Saturdays). You can book your spot here.
By the end of the year a 35-obstacle aerial assault course – the Bull Maze – will open, too. The maze will be split over three levels within a 20-metre-tall structure that’s designed to get adventurers facing their fears and pushing their limits.
Finally, arriving in early 2020 is a 23m, bungee jump set 1,500m above sea level. Expect more details soon.
Will you take any of them on?
