Starting right next to the world’s tallest skyscraper and landing on top of the world-famous Mall Of Dubai, the XLine’s 40-second cable ride runs almost 550 metres through the city centre, so prepare yourself for a splashing as you hurtle through the Dubai Fountains. Proving once again that it’s way more than just a stopover on the way to Europe, the adrenaline-pumping ride joins sandboarding, a huge fake mountain for skiing and 4×4 desert driving as one of the Middle East’s most exciting extreme adventures.

But you’ve gotta be speedy – the invitation-only XLine is only hanging around until the end of the year. Though the Crown Prince of Dubai was the lucky first rider, you don’t have to be royalty to zipline across one of the world’s most modern and lavish cities. You can snag an invite by begging very nicely on the XDubai website or social media – what are you waiting for?!
