You and a friend can now soar past over the marina at night thanks to this limited time offer. As the world’s longest urban zip-line, you can race at breakneck speeds from 7pm onwards. OK, the AED850 price tag is slightly on the expensive side, but as well as a once in a life time thrill, you’ll also get a warm fuzzy feeling as proceeds go to Al Jalila Foundation medical research.
