It’s located on Bluewaters Island at a staggering height of 210 m, Dubai Eye will showcase Dubai’s glittering coastline and the city’s impressive skyline.
Ain Dubai promises 360-degree views of the city and its coastline. On your Dubai Eye experience, expect sweeping panoramas of Dubai and its iconic landmarks like the Burj Al Arab, the Palm Jumeirah and the Burj Khalifa. This view is said to exceptionally beautiful around sunset when the city is veiled in pink and ombre hues.
The Dubai Eye has 48 capsules with a total capacity of 1400 pax. Each capsule is 30 square meters in size and made entirely of glass. 40 people can comfortably fit in each of these capsules and a complete ride/round takes about 45 minutes. All 48 capsules will feature smart climate control and will be fitted with LED screens offering travellers information on the spectacular views around.
