The longest inner-city zipline in the world is located in the Dubai Marina. this is called XLine and is something for tourists who are interested in a spectacular attraction.
There are so many activities that you can do while on vacation in Dubai. In our opinion, one week will not be enough to see the most important ones at all. But a highlight for tourists is certainly the XLine where you can zipline over the skyline of the Dubai Marina. Certainly, this is not suitable for everyone as it is very spectacular. You could compare this activity to Skydive Dubai, for example.
If you want to try this out, you will find the most important information here that you should know. You should also know that it is one of the steepest and even fastest ziplines in the whole world. There you get a speed of 80 km / h and therefore pure adrenaline is preprogrammed. If you manage to do this once then you will definitely be impressed afterward and you want to do it again right away.
A flight with XLine
First of all, you should know where the line is located. As you have already learned in the Dubai Marina and the start begins at the Amwaj Towers at a height of 170 meters. By the way, the destination is then at the Marina Mall and you drive a distance of one kilometer. But of course, it seems a lot longer once you’ve tried it out. But first, you always have to go to the Marina Mall to level P where there is a counter with staff where you can get information and get instructions. It is still possible to book a ticket there if there are still free places on that day. But you should know that only around 50 people are allowed to use the zipline per day. You have to know that this is very complex so that nothing happens because of the security.
Now you wonder what XLine costs and how much money you have to spend there. For individuals, the fee for a ticket is approximately 399 dirhams. As you have already learned, there is also the possibility that two people can use the zipline at the same time. That would be very useful for couples who want to do something extraordinary on vacation. There you only pay 699 dirhams and have thus saved some money again. By the way, the booking can be made directly through our Dubai ticket shop and all you need to do is show the voucher.
We definitely recommend that you always take care of the ticket beforehand, such as the Burj Khalifa ticket. Only 50 people can use it per day because it is very time-consuming because of the security measures.
Everything is of course very spectacular what you can imagine in Dubai and that also applies to the XLine. The starting point is in the Amwaj Towers at a height of 170 meters where there is also a hotel in the tower. The destination is in the Marina Mall where there is also a hotel. You then drive a distance of one kilometer and it takes a few minutes. But the whole thing is very spectacular and you have an incline of around 16 degrees which makes the zipline one of the steepest in the world. Of course, you get a decent speed of 80 km / h on it.
You can take the zipline from Wednesday to Monday from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Then there is a short break and then it continues from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. So you can use this attraction almost every day of the week, except on Tuesday. We recommend taking the flight in the evening, where you still have the opportunity to enjoy the sunset.
First, you need a ticket and then you have to go to the Marina Mall on level P where the XLine counter is located. You should allow around 90 minutes for this activity until it’s all over. Furthermore, you have to show your voucher and your passport. If you want, you can even enter the email address where you will be sent photos and videos after the flight. Of course, the flight is also filmed and photographed whatever you can imagine. Then the weight is checked and equipment is provided.
When this is done you take a minibus to the Amwaj Towers where the start is located. The elevator takes you to the top where the preparations and briefings take place. You also get safety information while driving. Before the actual flight, you have the opportunity to take great photos of the skyline of the Dubai Marina. You are then buckled up and you go to the jumping area. Then it starts and the flight takes place and you should enjoy it then.
For security reasons, you are not allowed to use your smartphone or video camera yourself. It could be that something falls down and you don’t want that. You get a helmet that you have to put on where there is an action cam that films everything. As already mentioned, this footage will be sent to you by email after the flight.
Dubai Marina Mall
The team is very well organized and goes to great lengths to ensure that nothing happens. That is why there is a limit of 50 people per day. So it is important that you buy the ticket well in advance. It may well be possible that there are still free places on the day when you want to ride the XLine. But it can also be good that everything is already booked. So it would be a shame if you can’t do this. So always reserve the ticket in good time and that is certainly an extraordinary gift that you can get.
If you have booked a hotel in the Dubai Marina you can even go there on foot. If you stay at The Palm Jumeirah then you can take a taxi to get there. You can also take the Dubai Metro to the Marina Mall and walk from there. If you have no idea at all then you just take the taxi and let yourself be driven to the main entrance of the shopping mall. From there you go to level P.
In order to be able to drive the XLine at all, there are some access criteria because of security. That means you have to meet certain criteria in order to be admitted at all. First of all, you have to be between 12 and 65 years old. You should also have a weight between 50 and 100 kilograms. After that, it is important that you are at least 1.30 meters tall. Of course, you should also be healthy because this is very exciting. Closed shoes must be worn during the flight. You are not allowed to fly in flip-flops. Furthermore, it is not allowed to wear skirts or dresses and you are given equipment that you have to use.
The XLine in the Dubai Marina is a unique experience that you can have if you are looking for adrenaline on vacation. You will definitely get this there. This is certainly not suitable for everyone and you have to be very brave to do this. But it’s a great experience to have.
