Depending on how you feel about heights, the below video may not be for you. On the other hand, it looks like the closest thing that humans may get to actual flying.

The world's longest zipline has just opened - but the bad news is that if you want to try it, you'll have to pencil in a trip to Dubai.

The 'Jebel Jais Flight' runs from the top of the UAE's highest mountain, Jebel Jais, is 1.7 miles long and reaches speeds of up to 90 miles an hour. The previous record-holder, The Green Monster in Puerto Rico, is 1.5 miles long.

True, it requires a serious amount of fate in the safety procedures - but so does bungee jumping, skydiving and the like.

Is it next on your thrillseeker's bucket list, or do you have sweaty palms just watching the video?
