Ain Dubai is the latest landmark to join Dubai’s long list of world record-breaking attractions. Located on Bluewaters Island, the giant observation wheel stands at a staggering height of 250m making it the highest and largest of its kind in the world.
The monument is an amazing feat of construction, with each leg of the wheel standing 126m high – long enough to fit 15 London buses – while the weight of the assembled hub and spindle is equivalent to four A380 aircrafts.
Accessible from the island, Ain Dubai (which means Dubai Eye in Arabic) is surrounded by unforgettable social and celebratory experiences, making it a must-visit attraction for all.
Situated across the water from the popular Jumeirah Beach Residences (JBR) beachfront, Ain Dubai offers unrivalled 360-degree views of the urban skyline in a relaxing yet mesmerizing 38-minute journey. With 48 air-conditioned passenger cabins, 1,750 visitors can take in the breathtaking experience in one revolution.
Ain Dubai showcases the city’s beautiful coastline, Dubai Marina’s sleek sights and dreamy glimpses of famous landmarks such as Burj Al Arab, Palm Jumeirah and the Burj Khalifa. Open day and night, visitors can take in two sides of Dubai on a ride – its skyscrapers shining bright in the sun’s rays or the landscape gradually glittering into the night as darkness falls.
Ain Dubai is more than an elevated vantage point for transforming city perspectives; the wheel’s base serves as a world-class entertainment zone with a large LED screen mounted on it.
