Need help with a two finger long tap

I need to access a feature within an iOS app that requires a two finger long tap to expose the functionality. Currently, I am able to perform the action successfully using the Appium inspector, however, I have not been able to get it woking in my script or ARC. This is the record result of a successful Touch::Action event using the inspector: “Appium::TouchAction.new :x => 168, :y => 251, :fingers => 2, :tapCount => 2, :duration => 2”.

Here is the code I have tried so far but no success:
Appium::TouchAction.new.tap(:x => 168, :y => 251, :fingers => 2).wait(2000).release.perform
Appium::TouchAction.new.tap(:x => 168, :y => 251, :fingers => 2, :tapCount => 2, :duration => 2).perform
Appium::TouchAction.new.long_press(:x => 168, :y => 251, :fingers=> 2, :duration => 2).perform

Using simulator iPhone 5s 8.4
script is implemented using Ruby

As a follow up, I was able to get a successful result with the following code:

first_finger = Appium::TouchAction.new.press(:x => 168, :y => 265).wait(2000).release
second_finger = Appium::TouchAction.new.press(:x => 183, :y => 265).wait(2000).release
double_tap = Appium::MultiTouch.new
double_tap.add first_finger
double_tap.add second_finger
double_tap.perform
