Experience Dubai’s infamous Jebel Jais Flight zip line while soaring over the House of Parliament in this new UK attraction.
Zip Now London, a new zip wire attraction located in London, England, is offering riders the chance to strap into a VR headset and experience the longest zip line ride in the world, minus the 7-hour flight to Dubai.
Now open to the public, Zip Line London features three impressive 225 meter zip lines capable of reaching speeds up to 50 kph. As part of the experience, riders have two options: the first is a standard zip line trip without a VR headset, allowing riders to check out the stunning view as they soar 35 meters above the London Eye, all the way to the Houses of Parliament.
For an even more breathtaking experience, participants will also have the opportunity to zip line while strapped into a VR headset. While flying, riders will be instantly transported to Jebel Jais Flight, the single longest zip-line course in the world. Located in Ras Al Khaimah, just 45 minutes from the city of Dubai, the Jebel Jais Flight features a staggering 2.83km zip-line that sends riders flying up to 100mph from the tip of the largest mountain in the United Arab Emirates.
Based on the video provided, it appears as though the attraction utilizes the Samsung Gear VR headset in order to display a 360-degree video of the massive Dubai line.
Visitors can book a two-ride package for £49, with various other single, group, and family options available as well. All participants will be instantly registered for the chance to win an incredible UAE holiday package as well.
Zip Now London’s VR Jebel Jais Flight was the result of a partnership between Zip Now London and Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority.
