Ain Dubai reopening postponed
The fate of the world’s largest Ferris wheel, Ain Dubai, remains unclear – its re-launch date has been postponed until “further notice”. The ride was closed for maintenance in March 2022 and promised to reopen to the public in the first quarter of this year, but no new announcements about the re-launch date have yet been made.
The Ain Dubai Ferris Wheel on Bluewaters Island is part of Dubai’s collection of world records. The wheel is unrivalled in the world with a height of 250 metres. The upper reaches offer breathtaking panoramic views of the city and the restaurants, malls and residences below.
Ain Dubai officially opened on 21 October 2021 and has 48 passenger cabins that can accommodate more than 1,750 visitors at a time, day or night. It is designed for families, romantic couples as well as special events and parties such as dinner in the sky.
An entertainment complex is placed at the base of the attraction and the wheel itself has a huge LED screen. The air-conditioned booths offer views of the whole of Dubai, its man-made islands and the Persian Gulf.
Ain Dubai took 38 minutes to complete a full spin and two revolutions in 76 minutes. Some booths were equipped with bars (Ain Dubai Sky Bar), while others were used to celebrate birthdays, engagements, weddings and other important events.
