The views from the world’s longest zipline – the Jebel Jais Flight in Ras Al Khaimah, UAE – will be coming to Archbishop’s Park in Lambeth this summer.
Until September 9, Zip Now London will be teaming up with the UAE’s Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority to create the Jebel Jais Flight London, which uses 360 degree video and augmented reality technologies to show the mountains of the UAE as your riding through the air in London.
The Jebel Jais Flight in the UAE opened in February 2018, and 10,000 visitors have already ridden the line. Jebel Jais Flight features a 2.83km zipline, where participants will travel up to 150kph, meaning that the journey only lasts 2-3 minutes.
The Zip Now London line is the fastest urban zipline, and it features a “Mega Drop Free Fall” at the end, so participants can return to the ground without having to use the stairs.
The Zip Now London line has impressive views even without the augmented reality option, since it is located across the river from Parliament.
Participants have the option to either book the Zip Now London with or without augmented reality. The former includes two rides, one with the VR experience, and one without for £49.
A classic ride on the zipline can be booked online here at a discount for £20 adult, £15 child, £16.50 concession. With the Mega Drop Free Fall at the end, tickets are £30 adult, £25 child, £26.50 concession.
