RAK launches new adventure attraction, Jebel Jais Zipline Tour
The zipline tour will add to Ras Al Khaimah's existing attractions, including the Jebel Jais Via Ferrata mountain climb and Jebel Jais Flight, the world's longest zipline
Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority (RAKTDA) has officially launched its Jebel Jais Zipline Tour – the latest adventure tourism offering housed on the UAE’s highest mountain peak.
Launched in partnership with ToroVerde, the zipline tour will add to the emirate’s existing attractions, including the Jebel Jais Via Ferrata mountain climb and Jebel Jais Flight, the world’s longest zipline, sister publication Arabian Business reported.
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 covers a total distance of five km with an average speed of 60kmph.
“As Jebel Jais remains core to our overall tourism proposition in making Ras Al Khaimah a global destination, we recognise the importance of constantly evolving our outdoor offering,” said Raki Phillips, CEO of RAKTDA.
New RAK adventure tourism products in the pipeline include ‘Bull Maze’ in Q4 2019, which comprises a field of 35 challenging obstacles suspended in the air, distributed on three levels of a 20-metres height structure.
