about the attraction
THE Ain Dubai It is located on Bluewater Island, next to a hotel and entertainment complex with excellent infrastructure to receive tourists. Its privileged location makes it possible to have a panoramic view of the incredible city of the United Arab Emirates, famous for its imposing buildings.
The name of the new attraction of Dubai means "eye of Dubai" and refers precisely to the possibility of seeing the entire city, including unprecedented angles of the main skyscrapers, the Palm Jumeirah - artificial island built in the shape of a palm tree -, the sea horizon in the Persian Gulf and the desert.
And there will be no shortage of time to enjoy the beautiful landscapes and record everything in countless photographs, as each turn of the Ferris wheel will last 38 minutes. Visitors will also be able to buy in advance up to two rounds in a row.
It is also worth getting on the highest Ferris wheel in the world in the late afternoon to enjoy the beautiful sunset from the top of its 250 meters. The new Dubai attraction will even have tour options especially for this time of day.
Ain Dubai took eight years to complete. The project was presented in 2013, but construction did not actually start until 2015. Initially, the Dubai Ferris wheel was supposed to be delivered in 2019, but completion was postponed to 2020 and, due to the pandemic, moved to 2021 .
Another record for Dubai
Known for its skyscrapers, artificial islands and unusual constructions, Dubai will break another record with the opening of the new attraction. Ain Dubai will be the tallest Ferris wheel in the world, displacing the High Roller in Las Vegas, at 167 meters high.
To give you an idea, Ain Dubai is almost three times bigger than Star River, the largest Ferris wheel in Latin America, located in the city of Rio de Janeiro, which is “only” 88 meters high.
In addition to the largest Ferris wheel in the world, Dubai is also home to the tallest building in the world - the Burj Khalifa, with 828 meters high -, the largest shopping mall in the world - The Dubai Mall -, the largest aquarium in the world, the elevator fastest in the world and the largest flower garden in the world, Dubai Miracle Garden, with over 50 million flowers.
Recently, the city also added another record to its list: the deepest swimming pool in the world. Deep Dive Dubai opened this year and is 60 meters deep and holds 14.6 million liters of water, a volume equivalent to six Olympic swimming pools.
