XDubai unveils the XLine Dubai Marina, the world’s longest urban zipline
(3 December 2017)

 

XDubai is taking ziplining to the extreme with the unveiling of the new XLine. Set in Dubai Marina, the new XLine is not only the world’s longest urban zip line, but also one of the steepest and fastest, measuring an astonishing 1 kilometre, with a spine-tingling incline of 16° and travelling at an average of 80 kilometres per hour. 

The XLine follows in the footsteps of the wildly popular original which launched in late 2015 at The Dubai Mall over the iconic Dubai Fountain. Building on the earlier archetype, the new XLine literally goes the distance, doubling in length and offering daring duos the ability to experience it together – swiftly yet safely - through two concurrently running ziplines. Also new is the superman style harness, which allows zipliners to channel their inner superhero with an electrifying flight-like experience as they zip from one of the Amwaj towers in JBR, 170 metres in the air, weaving through skyscrapers and across water, down to the terrace of Dubai Marina Mall, landing in close proximity to amazed bystanders.  

Building upon the success of the original XLine, the new version will also be open to both visitors and residents* of Dubai for a limited time with public bookings open now. All those experiencing the XLine will be able to share the experience to the world through a helmet mounted Go-Pro with photos and video delivered via email following the experience.

“We wouldn’t be XDubai if we didn’t push the limits of what is possible,” said Mohammed Javad, General Manager of XDubai. “Following the success of the first XLine, we wanted to step it up more than a notch and importantly, give both residents and visitors to Dubai the opportunity to have a true-to-form XDubai experience. The result is like nothing else – two ziplines - the world’s longest in an urban setting, in one of the world’s most vibrant neighbourhoods.” 

With two ziplines running concurrently, XLine can accommodate 16 people per hour with individuals able to take the leap - or zip - with a friend, family member or colleague.  Family and friends of those ziplining will have a great vantage point from the Marina Promenade next to Dubai Marina Mall.

The result of in-depth planning and preparation, including extensive safety measures and testing, and adhering to the strictest industry standards, the XLine was made possible thanks to close collaboration between a host of stakeholders, and in particular, launch and landing venue partners, Dubai Properties and Emaar.

At the forefront of Dubai’s meteoric real estate developments, since its inception, Dubai Properties’ aim has always been to create destinations that deliver exceptional lifestyle opportunities to residents and visitors. As partner to XDubai’s XLine, they have provided access to one of JBR’s Amwaj buildings which, in addition to being a vibrant residential complex, will play double duty by bringing the XLine to life as host of the breathtaking launch platform.

Also partnering with XDubai to make the XLine possible is Emaar, the developer of The Dubai Marina Mall, the location where all XLine journeys will both start and stop. The mall is also host to the XDubai’s new XShop, a new retail outlet that along acting as a check-in point for the XLine experience, sells a host of XDubai merchandise.  

Nasser Rafi, Chief Executive Officer of Emaar Malls, said: “Having witnessed remarkable success when the original XLine was launched at The Dubai Mall, Emaar Malls is thrilled to be partnering with XDubai to host a second never-before attraction with the XLine at Dubai Marina. XLine will delight visitors and is a great example of Dubai hosting innovative leisure attractions.”

“The XLine is an example of what is possible through establishing strong partnerships and teamwork across a wide variety of stakeholders and in particular, Emaar and Dubai Properties and various other government entities,” added Mr Javad. “Their unwavering support and cooperation allowed us to ensure the delivery of the highest safety standards and in turn, offer an unparallelled experience.”
