The World's Longest Zip Line Is More Epic Than You Ever Imagined

Zip-lining is one of the most thrilling and exciting things you can do, right up there with skydiving and paragliding. And the more exciting the adventure is, the higher and longer the line is.

The United Arab Emirates is now home to the world's longest zip line. The line, which is 1.7 miles long, was named the longest in the world by the Guinness World Records this week before the park opened (the equivalent of 28 soccer fields). 

Also, it starts at the top of the Jebel Jais mountain, which is 5,511 feet above sea level, and sends you hurtling down at up to 93 miles per hour. It will be the most exciting three minutes of your life, for sure.

People in the area hope that it will bring more tourists to Ras Al Khaimah, which is in the north of the country near the border with Oman. 

Until now, Dubai and the famously luxurious palm islands off its coast have been bigger draws.

You can ride at any age, but you have to be at least 4 feet tall and weigh between 100 and 300 pounds.

The ride costs $176, and you have to be pretty brave to step off the platform, but it's a once-in-a-lifetime experience. And for more great ideas for a bucket list.
