What is XDubai Slingshot?


A pool of questions lurking your mind about this new age human slingshot in Dubai? Here's what it is. Xdubai Slingshot on Kite Beach in Umm Suqeim 1 allows you to experience a G-force of up to 4, and reach speeds of 100 km/hr in just half a second as you are propelled 120 metres over sand and water.

G in the above sentence stands for Gravity and represents how many times the force of gravity is felt. For example, if you feel the force of 4G, it indicates four times the force of gravity. Hence, if you're 100 kg while standing still, you would weigh 400 kg at the 4G point of the ride!
