Fastest City Zip Line – level 2

26-01-2018 07:00

In Dubai, a new zip line opened. It is the longest and fastest urban zip line in the world.

It starts at 168 metres above the city marina. You can go up to 80 kilometres an hour, as the zip line is almost one kilometre long.

Difficult words: zip line (a cable between two places, down which you can go down for fun), urban (in a city), marina (a safe place for people’s yachts and small boats).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
