A groom-to-be proved he was crazy in love this weekend by becoming the first person ever to propose on the world's longest zipline in Ras Al Khaimah.

Adrian Mackay, a 30-year-old from Bengaluru, India, popped the question to his wife-to-be as she came in to land on the suspended platform high up on Jebel Jais, the UAE's tallest mountain.

The adrenaline-fueled proposal was supported by Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority and Toro Verde UAE, who arranged for a 'Will you marry me?' banner to be unveiled as Mackay got down on one knee 80m above the mountain floor.

 

 

Mackay was first to fly the 2.83km zipline, before waiting on the unique suspended platform to ask for his partner's hand in marriage. Susan Kuruvilla, also from Bangalore, had her breathe taken away from both the exhilarating flight and her partner's surprise proposal but found her voice to say a big 'yes'.

Mackay said: "I wanted to do something special to make our engagement unique and when I heard about the world's longest zipline, I knew it would be the perfect way to propose. From the beautiful drive to Ras Al Khaimah to the stunning views in the Jais mountains and the exhilaration of the zipline itself, it was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience."
