Arrivals & Departures Fly over Dubai on the world's longest urban zip-line

If going from zero to 60km/hour in 2.5 seconds sounds like fun, head to Dubai to fly Superman-style above the skyscrapers.

Twice the length of its forerunner in Downtown Dubai, the recently opened XLine Dubai Marina extends a full kilometre from a height of 170m to ground level.

Built above Dubai Marina, it has a 16-degree incline, allowing for speeds of up to 80km/hour.

Daredevils can try the Superman-style harness, which suspends the rider horizontally as they zip from one of the Amwaj towers down to the terrace of Dubai Marina Mall. 

And take along a friend or family member too: there are two adjacent zip-lines, so you can ride (and scream) in tandem.
