What is XDubai Slingshot?

Curious about the innovative human slingshot experience in Dubai? Introducing Xdubai Slingshot, located at Kite Beach in Umm Suqeim 1. Brace yourself for an adrenaline rush as you soar 120 meters over sand and water, experiencing up to 4 G-force and reaching speeds of 100 km/hr in just half a second.

"G" denotes Gravity and signifies the magnitude of gravitational force experienced. For instance, experiencing a force of 4G implies four times the gravitational force. Consequently, if your weight is 100 kg when stationary, you would weigh 400 kg at the point of 4G acceleration during the ride!
