Dubai does it again! Know for all things biggest, tallest and fastest, it looks like Dubai’s ‘World’s best’ list is only getting longer.
The Ferris wheel is set to be the world’s largest with each glass-enclosed capsule rising up to 820 feet in the air and offering 360-degree panoramas of the Dubai skyline.
It’s high time we’ve spoken about the London Eye and the Singapore Flyer because the Ain Dubai is set to break all records with a height of 250 meters against the 167 meters tallest in the world.
Located on Bluewaters Island, construction began in May 2015 and is set to be opened to visitors from all around the world later this year. In January, the Dubai Media Office said that the wheel will be completed this year.
The wheel can accommodate 1900 people and each ride will last for 48 minutes. The capsules are temperature controlled, to beat Dubai’s weather conditions. Over 9000 tons of steel was used for the construction of the structure. And this is 25% more than what was used for the building of the Eiffel Tower. Cable wires spanning 2400 km hold the wheel rim in place.
To add to its bounty, a few capsules in the wheel comes in with a dine-in option during your ride. And, dining amidst the clear skies, in a private capsule with striking views of the city’s skyline, definitely sounds like a perfect arrangement for any celebration.
Earlier, Meraas in a tweet announced that Ain Dubai is set to open later this year, coinciding with EXPO 2020.
