Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority (RAKTDA) has officially unveiled the Jais Adventure Peak, a collection of iconic adventure attractions perched atop the UAE's highest mountain, Jebel Jais.

The Emirate's latest adventure tourism offering includes the Jebel Jais Flight, Jais Sky Tour and Jebel Jais Viewing Deck Park, in addition to the brand new Jais Adventure Center and Jais Sky Maze.

Set amidst the magnificent Hajar mountain range, the grand opening took place in the presence of His Highness Sheikh Saud Bin Saqr Al Qasimi, UAE Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Ras Al Khaimah, top hospitality industry professionals, and VIP guests.

Following the official opening ceremony, guests were treated to an exclusive first-look at the new Jais Adventure Center and Jais Sky Maze as well as the chance to explore the canyons and spectacular views through the exhilarating Jais Sky Tour.

Raki Phillips, CEO of Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority, said: "the eagerly anticipated launch of the Jais Adventure Peak will not only add to the Emirate's diverse hospitality offering but will also elevate the undeniable appeal of Jebel Jais itself."

"The Jais Adventure Peak captures Ras Al Khaimah's adventurous spirit through a series of adrenaline-pumping experiences that will leave a lasting impression on our guests and unforgettable memories," Raki Phillip said.

"The views they take in as they make their way up to the Adventure Peak to the welcoming staff on-hand with information, the various activities, and most importantly the sustainable yet unique adventure attractions themselves, will add to their unique experience," he added.

The newly launched Jais Sky Maze - the latest addition to the Jebel Jais Adventure Peak's suite of attractions, promises a thrilling experience suspended 10 meters above ground, he explained.

"Spanning two levels, the Jais Sky Maze calls out to adventure seekers of all ages to take to the sky and navigate through several obstacles including rope swings, wobbly bridges, swinging loops and more."

The team will be on-hand to guide visitors throughout the experience, which lasts an hour and is ideal for groups of up to 15 people per session, Phillips said.

"Toro Verde's skilled team ensures the highest safety standards are adhered to across the suite of activities, adopting international best practice regarding stringent safety measures and equipment inspections."
