Inspired by the famous London Eye, Ain Dubai is the world’s tallest observation wheel! This 210-meter-long structure is built in the center of Bluewater islands which are a group of human-made islands. The 360-degree views of the city, coastline, beaches, skyscrapers, and the fantastic views of Burj Khalifa, Palm Jumeirah, and Burj Al Arab are a magnificent sight! It is set to finish construction by October 20th, 2020 in time for Dubai Expo 2020.
The name Ain Dubai, when translated from Arabic to English, means “Dubai Eye” and the name is well-kept since the wheel actually provides an entire view of the city. This forty-eight minutes long ride is set to provide the most majestic, stunning, and breathtaking views to its guests and visitors. On being completed and fully constructed, the Dubai Eye is expected to have shopping malls, a souk or traditional shopping center, residential apartments, restaurants, gyms, pools, gardens, play areas, sports complexes and courts, and a 4-D theatre as well. The huge round disc put in the center of the wheel is basically a LED screen that is meant for entertainment and light show purposes.
