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.
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.
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.
