XLine Dubai: Reviews

We really enjoyed this experience. I am afraid of heights and was about to back out, but the instructors made you feel at ease and very safe. Once you get to the top floor of the building the views are amazing and it starts to sink in how high you actually are. I felt really nervous until I was strapped into the harness and attached to the zip wire. This felt really safe and secure and the nerves just disappeared. There is no free falling feeling, the ride is quite relaxing, as you feel like you are gliding/flying. Overall we really enjoyed it and would recommend it while you are in Dubai.

It was my very first zip line experience so I was really nervous. When I went on top of the building I almost gave up cos of the height. But the crew was extremely friendly and so professional. Which made my fear go away. I knew I was in safe hands. They had the best equipments and everything was handled very professionally. I felt like a free bird for a moment. It wasn’t that fast, and not nearly as scary as I was expecting. And you land straight back at the mall. Once you set-off, it really is the most surreal experience, but hands-down the most memorable part of my trip to Dubai. It really is an amazing experience and I totally recommend it.
