Unique zipline experience comes to London
Londoners can now experience a taste of the world’s longest zipline in Ras Al Khaimah, courtesy of the world’s first augmented reality (AR) zipline experience.
Dubbed The Jebel Jais Flight London, the AR experience was created by Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority (RAKTDA) in partnership with Zip Now London.
The unique attraction – which also promotes the real version in Ras Al Khaimah – gives visitors the chance to experience the physical thrill of riding the world’s longest and fastest urban zipline, situated in Waterloo, while enjoying the views from the Guinness World Record setting Jebel Jais Flight zipline thanks to the latest Augmented Reality technology.
Haitham Mattar, CEO of RAKTDA, which is actively promoting Ras Al Khaimah in the UK market, said: “With world-leading experiences such as the Jebel Jais Flight we’re transforming Ras Al Khaimah from an undiscovered Emirate to the adventure hub of the middle east, making our stunning mountain range accessible and enjoyable for the first time.
“The Jebel Jais Flight London is giving adventure seekers a completely unique way to experience riding a record-setting attraction from an undiscovered part of the globe, but from right here in the heart of the city. By combining the fantastic ride of Zip Now London and the latest 360 video and augmented reality technologies, we’ve created a world first experience people can enjoy all summer long.”
Barry Shevarin, CEO of Zip Now, added: “This amazing partnership with Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority has enabled the most exciting and innovative urban ziplining experience ever.
“Not only are our lines carrying more people further and faster than before, but now visitors can transport themselves to the top of Jebel Jais Mountain in Ras Al Khaimah and experience the attraction that everyone in adventure tourism is talking about.”
