Dubai’s Latest Challenge: Zip-Lining Across Dubai Fountains
Zip-lining 558 metres above the Dubai Fountains is the emirate’s latest project to promote the importance of sports and a healthy lifestyle.
The ‘X Line’ project, initiated by Dubai X, a company that runs action sport activities, was launched early this month with Shaikh Hamdan Bin Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, being the first person to travel across the zip-line in front of Burj Khalifa.
Taking off from the top of a 90-metre long residential building in Emaar Boulevard, participants zip-line across the Dubai fountains, enjoying breath taking views of Dubai before landing on top of Dubai Mall.
“The speed of the trolley is between 60km-80km per hour depending on the person’s weight,” said Sara Sara Fakhouri, Head of Marketing Communications at Dubai X. Details
