Ras Al Kaimah boosts adventure portfolio with new zipline tour

Adrenaline junkies prepare – a new challenge awaits you! It’s back to inVOYAGE 2018 destination Ras Al Khaimah, which has unveiled its latest adventure attraction – the Jebel Jais Zipline Tour.

The Jebel Jais Zipline Tour features seven ziplines flying over the grand cliffs and canyons of Jebel Jais which are connected by nine platforms; the cluster of seven ziplines cover a total distance of 5km (ranging from 337m to 1km in length) with an average speed of 60kmph.

During the tour, flyers will navigate their way through the air to reach the 15 metre long sky bridge, the highest in the UAE at 1,250m above the sea level and 300m above ground, which they will have to cross to finish the remaining part of the zipline tour journey.

Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority (RAKTDA) developed the new attraction in partnership with ToroVerde.

It complements the existing attractions including the Jebel Jais Via Ferrata (mountain climbing) and the Jebel Jais Flight: The Word’s Longest Zipline, that has already welcomed more than 35,000 flyers since its launch, including a group of brave inVOYAGERS last year.

RAKTDA, which is positioning the destination as the adventure capital of the UAE, is developing further adventure tourism products, including Bullmaze. Set to open before the end of this year, it features a field of 35 challenging obstacles suspended in the air, distributed on three levels of a 20-meter high structure that will encourage each participant to face their limits. 

The next adventure attraction to launch in Q1 2020 will be a controlled bungee at a height of 1,500 meters above the sea (23 metres above ground). Participants will have a free fall of 8 meters and a controlled fall of 15 metres.
