Jais Sledder toboggan ride as opened in Ras Al Khaimah, the capital of the Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah in the United Arab Emirates.

The toboggan reaches speeds of up to 40km. hr. and boasts views of Jebel Jais, the highest peak of the UAE, which is part of the Hajar mountain range.

Riders are taken along a 1,885mt. track, on sleds designed for two people. The attraction is located in the Jais Adventure Park, alongside the world’s longest zip line and the world’s first Bear Grylls Explorers Camp.

Raki Phillips, CEO of Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority, commented on the opening of the new attraction: “It has been an incredibly busy time as the emirate continues to develop and build on its reputation not only the adventure capital of the Middle East but also as a family focused destination.

“Jais Sledder forms part of the half a billion dirham investment announced in 2021, in partnership with RAK Leisure and RAK Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and is the first of 20 planned projects throughout the emirate,” Phillips added.
