Located on Bluewaters Island, the world’s tallest observation wheel Ain Dubai carries visitors to a height of 250 meters, approximately twice that of the London Eye.

Each of the cabins is larger than two double-decker buses placed side by side. The whole structure includes 11,200 tonnes of steel, a weight that is around one-third more than that of the iron used in the Eiffel Tower. At the heart of Ain Dubai is a hub and spindle assembly that weighs 1,805 tonnes, equivalent to the weight of four A380 aircraft. It is supported by four legs, each of which is 126 m long.

Ain Dubai will be open from 12pm to 10pm every day. Its slow moving, air-conditioned ride experience similar to a gentle flight, offers visitors two sides of Dubai - its skyscrapers shining bright in the sun’s rays or the glittering city come to life at night and bathe in an Arabian sunset.

Roam around the cabin and take photos of unmissable sweeping views of Dubai’s coastline and world famous landmarks such as Burj Al Arab, Palm Jumeirah and the Burj Khalifa as you climb steadily through the sky.

Ain Dubai offers a huge range of entertainment to keep you coming back, from weddings and cultural festivities to your next corporate event up in the sky. You could even brand the wheel in lights with your company logo!

There are three different pod experiences on offer, starting from: observation cabins, social cabins and private cabins. For the ultimate luxury, guests can book one of many VIP pods that host dining experiences as well as customisable private events, from extravagant parties to special family-friendly occasions.

For the end of a perfect day toast the sunset over Dubai. The social cabins also grant access to Ain Dubai’s Seaview Lounge where you can indulge in delicious dining.
