Dubbed as the tallest and largest observation wheel in world, Dubai is to be home to an iconic new attraction that is set to open on October 21, 2021.

Known as ‘Ain Dubai’, meaning ‘Dubai Eye’ in Arabic, the wheel will stand at a height of 820ft, making it the tallest observation wheel in the world.

The attraction will be the showpiece of Bluewaters Island, the artificial island which opened near the Dubai Marina in 2018.

The huge wheel features 48 enclosed cabins, some of which can accommodate up to 40 passengers. A total of 1,750 people can experience Ain Dubai at the same time. However, due to Covid-19 pandemic, each cabin is currently restricted to a maximum of ten people. Each ride lasts for 38 minutes.

The attraction offers 19 customisable experiences, including dining in the sky and exclusive celebration packages. Bespoke corporate and event packages are also available.

The wheel will be open day and night, offering incredible, 360-degree views of the emirate’s skyline.
