King has been to the Emirates before. He visited the UAE in 2015 to speak at the 14th Arab Media Forum, and took the opportunity to film a video of tricks over Palm Jumeirah, which was uploaded to his then-active Vine account.

While he was in Dubai, he completed his first skydive at Skydive Dubai.
