Ski Dubai launches ‘Snow Bullet’ zip line attraction

Ski Dubai launches ‘Snow Bullet’ zip line attraction
January 18, 2014

The Ski Dubai indoor ski slope has introduced its latest unique attraction, a 150 metre long zip line running 16 metres above the attaction's snow covered surface.

The state-of-the-art zip line propels riders above Ski Dubai's slopes while skiers and snowboarders navigate their trials below. Combining speed, majestic views and the thrill of soaring above the ground, the Snow Bullet can accommodate two people simultaneously on its dual track, so guests can compete against each other as they race in sub-zero temperatures.

Employing the latest technology and highest safety standards, the zip line is offered as an added ride with Ski Dubai's 'PowerPass' ticket and enables guests to enjoy an exhilarating day at the snow park.

As the Snow Bullet starts at the top of the slope, guests will enjoy a chairlift ride up to the Avalanche Café, where they will be harnessed into the zipline and then propelled over and across to land at the base of the slope, with the newly launched Snow Bullet café.

It combines with other attractions including zorbing and the 'Mountain Thriller' ride (racing down the winding and angled slopes in a two-passenger tube,

Welcoming the Snow Bullet, Majid Al Futtaim Leisure & Entertainment Marketing & Sales Director Omar El Banna explained "Ski Dubai has a strong legacy and we have worked very hard to ensure it remains iconic and continues to push the boundaries of what is possible the Snow Bullet is another example of this.

"Who would have imagined that it would be possible to soar above a ski resort in the desert, and yet, here we are.

"2014 is all set to be a definitive year for us as we forge ahead with the pioneering vision of Majid Al Futtaim and continue to enthrall guests, while creating great moments."

Covering 22,500 metres, Ski Dubai is part of the Mall of the Emirates, one of the largest shopping malls in the world, located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It was developed by Majid Al Futtaim Properties, which also operates the Mall of the Emirates.
