Dubai plays host to Dream Jump free-fall experience
30 March, 2015
Jumping from a building is usually reserved for only the most experienced skydivers, but with a new technology being brought to Dubai, anyone brave enough can seek the thrill of freefall from one of the emirate’s tallest towers. A purpose-built eight-metre platform has been set up at the top of Princess Tower in Dubai Marina, 400 metres up, from which adrenaline junkies at Skydive Dubai can take on the Dream Jump from 13-19 April. The jump system has been patented by Polish company Dream World, which has tested the equipment on 20,000 jumps across six European countries since 2009. It uses a braking system that gives a longer free-fall experience than bungee jumping.
