THE LONGEST ZIP LINE in the world is Jebel Jais Flight, located in the mountainous desert of Ras Al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates. This Guinness World Record holder is 1.76 miles long (31 soccer fields) and can reach a speed of 93 miles per hour. Tears form and the pulse quickens as it accelerates to 60 miles per hour, descending more than a thousand feet vertically. The zipline runs from mid-May to mid-November, weather permitting.
