World’s tallest observation wheel, Ain Dubai, will open this year

Located at Meraas’ Dhs8bn Bluewaters Island, Ain Dubai is over 250 metres tall

The world’s tallest observation wheel, Ain Dubai, will be opened this year to “coincide” with the start of Expo 2020 Dubai.

Located at Meraas’ Dhs8bn Bluewaters Island, Ain Dubai, at over 250 metres, will carry up to 1,900 passengers at a time in its 48 double-glazed capsules, offering 360-degree views of Dubai.

When complete, the structure will be over 200 per cent taller than the first ever Ferris wheel. Currently, the world’s tallest observation wheel is the High Roller in Las Vegas, US, which stands at 167 metres. The second tallest is the London Eye, which has a height of 135 metres.

Ain Dubai is set to become the main attraction on Bluewaters Island, which also features entertainment, retail, residential and hospitality offerings.
