B.A.S.E. Jumping Burj Khalifa

I know what you’re thinking. “That guy that sings ‘Black and Yellow’ has his own tower? That wasn’t even a good song!” Fortunately, Dubai’s Burj Khalifa wasn’t built for an overpaid rapper, but instead constructed to stand as a beacon symbolic of progress.

As the world’s tallest structure, the colossal hotel/office building measures a full 2,716.5 feet. What is this perfect for? That’s right, B.A.S.E. jumping. Those hundreds of extra feet that the Burj Khalifa has over other structures allows for many more invaluable seconds of flight time and a greater opportunity to do the crazy. No wonder it’s the world’s top jump site. Little do jumpers know that they’re leaping from the city’s pride and joy, a humongous example of international cooperation and the new, prospering Middle East. With the world’s greatest architectural feat and one of the largest airports in the world, it is evident that Dubai is quickly becoming a superpower with a future aimed at expansion.
