Ras Al Khaimah introduces plans for a new experience at Toroverde Adventure Park

Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority has announced the start of construction on a flagship adventure tourism product. The "Jebel Jais Zipline Tour" will be located at the Toroverde Adventure Park on the United Arab Emirates’ highest mountain.

The new project will add another world-class attraction to the emirate’s expanding adventure tourism portfolio, while further strengthening its position as one of the region’s most rapidly growing tourist destinations.

The new rides, which are operated by Toroverde Adventure Park, will add to the existing Jebel Jais Flight, which is the longest zipline in the world. The vertiginous zipline measures over 2.8 kilometres.

The debut of the new adventure park is a testament of Ras Al Khaimah’s ongoing efforts to expand and develop its adventure tourism offering in what is fast becoming known as the region’s hub for adventure tourism.

In the first half of 2018, international markets accounted for 66 per cent of overall visitors to the emirate, which is on the right track to capitalise on the global adventure tourism industry through the introduction of new and innovative products with both local and international appeal.

Haitham Mattar, Chief Executive of Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority, said:

“We are pleased to announce the commencement of construction on the new Adventure Park on Jebel Jais, as it recognizes a sector of our tourism proposition that is fundamental to the growth of Ras Al Khaimah as a global destination."

Mattar added:

“With the increasing number of visitors we are witnessing year-on-year, we believe that the introduction of new attractions is essential to maintain Ras Al Khaimah’s strong position on the world tourism map.

“Launching the new Adventure Park in the first half of 2019 will bring us one step closer to becoming an internationally recognized destination, as we aim to attract three million visitors by 2025.”

The Bull Maze at the Viewing Deck Park launching in the second quarter of next year, will consist of a field of 35 difficult obstacles suspended in the air, distributed in three floors of a 20 metres height structure that will challenge each participant to face their limits.
