Dubai has an attraction especially for adrenaline junkies, the XLine Dubai Marina. After the great success of the temporary zipline in Downtown Dubai, Xline is back with a zipline that is twice as long as the previous zipline. With this zipline you can slide down with two people at the same time. The most bizarre thing about this zip line is the speed. This slide has an angle of 16 degrees, within a few seconds you go from 0 km/ h to 80 km/ h while sliding down from the 170 m high launch platform.
Just like everything else in Dubai, this Xline zipline is not just a zipline, with its 1 kilometer length the zipline is officially the longest urban zipline. Means the longest zipline that goes through a city. The zipline starts at the Amwaj Towers in the Dubai Marina and goes across the water from the Dubai Marina to the Dubai Marina Mall. Along the way you can enjoy the amazing view of the Dubai Marina, the special twisted Cayan Tower and the Princess Tower, the tallest residential tower in the world.
