Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s a flying cake!
DUBAI, UAE, Dec. 26, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — On 20th December, Skydive Dubai, owned by Shamal Holding, celebrated its 13th anniversary with a one-of-a-kind BASE jump featuring a record-holding skydiver jumping out of an inflatable cake lifted by balloons, at the Dubai Dropzone.
This unique project, born from a simple idea, evolved over six months of implementation, from designing the inflatable cake to engineering its compatibility with the balloons and making the jump possible.
The extensive effort was a testament to Skydive Dubai’s passion for innovation. Collaborating with numerous partners, the journey was a true labor of passion, demonstrating the dedication that Skydive Dubai brings to every project.
For more than 13 years, Skydive Dubai has stood as a must-visit destination and a thrilling experience for skydiving enthusiasts, tourists, and residents alike. It holds the distinction of being the preferred choice in the UAE for those seeking an adrenaline-fueled tandem skydive.
