Adrenaline junkies, get ready to face a zip line unlike any other - and not just because it will be the longest zip line in the world.

Not only will you be soaring high above the desert after being launched from the top of a mountain, but you'll be face down and flying just like Superman for the whole journey!

A new project by the Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority (RAKTDA) and Toro Verde sees the world's longest zip line launching from the top of the UAE's highest peak, Jebel Jais.

After months of anticipation the The Jebel Jais Flight zipline has finally opened to the public, with prices starting from £125pp.

Starting from 1,680m above sea level, the zip line itself measures 2.8km; that's more than three times the length of Dubai's Burj Khalifa and the equivalent of 28 football pitches.

It's sure to make for a hair-raising experience, especially with speeds reaching from 74mph (120kph) to 93mph (150kph)!
