This is one of the most adventurous and extreme activities to engage in because most people live with the fear of height but on the flip side, Skydiving is exactly all you need to conquer that fear. Jump off a plane and experience a free fall from a height of about 13,000 feet, and although this is very extreme, it is worth all the panic because it is the type of memory that lasts for a lifetime. You have to be above the age of 18 to engage in this activity and you also must not weight more than 100kg because that determines how balanced you will be in the air before your parachute comes to your rescue.
Lots of people tend to avoid ziplining because of its high risk but nothing can be compared to the couple of seconds you’ll spend performing this risky task with a speed of about 70km/h. The feeling is not the type that fades away with time; the memories will live with you forever as you will get to enjoy a landscape view of the city. Ziplining is really an amazing activity and also one of the best ways to enjoy the city’s landscape views, with Dubai Marina XLine and Dubai Fountains proving to be the best spots for the activity.
