The United Arab Emirates has made a record by opening the world's longest zip line, measuring 2.83 kms in length.
Guinness World Records officials certified the zip line in Ras al-Khaimah.
The Jebel Jais Flight takes thrill-seekers atop the country's largest mountain peak, from a launch pad 1,680 meters (5,512 feet) above sea level.
It was constructed in Ras al-Khaimah, one of the lesser known Emirates states as part of a push to increase tourism in the country.
