Dubai has almost become synonymous with all “the best”, becoming a city of records that seems to have overtaken the whole world for a couple of decades.

The world’s tallest skyscraper, first operational police robots, biggest man-made islands, and the largest shopping mall – the list goes on. Among these records, the giant Ferris wheel called Ain Dubai on Bluewaters Island, the largest Ferris wheel in the world, stands strong next to the other grand-scale developments Dubai has to offer.

Ain Dubai peculiarities

Created by the famous Meraas Corporation, Bluewaters Island by itself is a landmark on the map of the UAE’s largest metropolis. It is connected to the coastal area of ​JBR ​The Beach by a spectacular 265-meter bridge.



It is here where Ain Dubai (also known as The Dubai Eye) is located. The world’s tallest Ferris wheel. It has a height of 210 meters, equivalent to a 57 floors skyscraper. It is visible almost everywhere. From above – from a cabin similar to a streamlined space capsule, incredible landscapes of Dubai can be witnessed, as well as breathtaking views of the Arabian Gulf and beautiful sunsets. Up to 1,400 people can be placed in 48 cabins at the same time. A huge round screen can be seen in the center of the wheel.

At the foot of the wheel, there are numerous business and entertainment centers, as well as dining venues and a luxurious Caesars Palace Bluewaters hotel.

The attendance of Ain Dubai is expected to be up to 3 million people a year.

History of Creation of The Dubai Eye

The launch of the Ferris wheel was first scheduled for 2015, but the deadlines were constantly shifting. It was planned to open it for the Expo 2020 exhibition, which was postponed to October 1, 2021, due to the Covid-19 Coronavirus Pandemic. The new opening date is set for 21 October 2021.

The 2 largest cranes in the world with a height of 180 meters are involved in the construction of the wheel. With the help of those, huge parts of the Ferris wheel are mounted. The total weight of The Dubai Eye under construction is approximately 7500 tons.


Sights and views

The impressive height of Ain Dubai will offer visitors magnificent views of the surrounding area. The Arabian Gulf and the amazing coastline of Dubai will be enjoyed by visitors. In addition to natural beauty, residents and guests will have a chance to admire the miracles created by humans:

  • Burj Al Arab – a unique famous hotel 321 meters high; one of the tallest in the world. The hotel lobby is the tallest in the world (180 meters). It is considered the only seven-star and most expensive hotel in the world.
  • Palm Jumeirah – an artificial island in the form of a palm tree consisting of a trunk, 16 leaves, and a crescent moon around an island 11 kilometers long.
  • Burj Khalifa – a skyscraper 828 meters high, which is the tallest in the world.

All of those will be visible from Ain Dubai, which will certainly make this place an extremely hot tourist spot.
