WATCH: World's longest zip line opening in UAE

The highest mountain in Ras Al Khaimah of the UAE is going to become host to the longest zip line in the world.

The multi-million dollar tourism projects sees plans to build record-breaking zip line 'three times the height of the Burj Khalifa', which is 830 metres from base to tip. 

Set to open in December, the exact length remains a secret. 

However, it is expected to be longer that 'The Monster' in Puerto Rico which is 2,200 metres long.

Thrill-seekers will get to launch from Jebal Jais, the UAE's highest peak and experience a 1,823 metre drop when they take off. 

When on the line, you'll zip through the valleys of the mountainous range at top speeds of 130km/h. 

Do you dare?
