‘Highest Urban Zipline,’ BASE Jump Is Plain Crazy

How would you feel about jumping off the second highest building in the world? Or, how about taking the zipline?

SkydiveDubai and XDubai have partnered with DreamJump to open the Princess Tower in the heart of Dubai for a few days, in which 558 people BASE jumped from the tower.

Interestingly, a zipline was also constructed from the tower to the Dubai Marina, so BASE jumpers could start their descent along what looks to be the wildest zipline on the planet before releasing to complete a BASE jump.
