Dream Jump from 99th floor of Princess Tower Dubai

Picture a platform, erected at the dizzying height of 400 metres above sea level, on the 99th floor of the Marina’s iconic Princess Tower –it’s the world’s tallest residential building.

This is the place where a handful of guys will take the plunge as part of the ‘Dream Jump Dubai’ experience, which is travelling around the world in a series of 80 jumps to break a few records and, perhaps, chalk up a few thrills in the bargain.The plunge from 400 metres above sea level is expected to be the highest ever attempted, with the previous record set at 364 metres.

Sponsored by Skydive Dubai, the event will be held between April 13 and 19, allowing professional athletes and a select group of invitees to experience the free-fall lasting over 10 seconds.
