The employee who sent out a false missile alert in Hawaii earlier this month said he honestly thought the island was under alert. It took almost 40 minutes for the agency to figure out a way to retract the false alert on the same platforms it was sent to.

"It actually comprises two main zipline cables, allowing friends and family members to experience and race together, adding to the fun and competitiveness of the facility".

It opened to the public today and can accommodate one rider every five minutes, or around 100,000 people per year. With the weather in Jebel Jais being far cooler than average temperatures of the UAE, it makes ziplining here a lot more fun, even in summer.

HH Sheikh Ahmad bin Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi was the first to trial the new zipline this morning, following the official certification by Guinness World Records.
