Ain Dubai – A relatively newer landmark is slowly but surely becoming a major icon of Dubai. Located in the center of Blue Waters Island, The Ain offers 250-meter-high views that gaze over the cosmopolitan Dubai Marina towers. This beautiful monument is also a record-breaking observation viewpoint, as it won the award for the World’s Largest Ferris wheel when it opened in October 2021.
The impressive Ain has 48 hi-tech cabins that can carry up to 1750 passengers, but Ain wasn’t built in a day. In fact, construction began in May 2015 with hopes to finish in 2020 to coincide with the World Expo, but both were postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. On its opening day on the 21st October 2021, Ain Dubai celebrated in true Dubai style with musical performances below the wheel on Bluewater’s Island and an impressive drone show that could be seen from Jumeirah Beach Residences opposite the attraction. What’s most impressive about the marvelous Ain is that the 192 cables that enable the wheel to function are actually part of a grand light display that project an array of colours to create beautiful designs as day becomes night on the Ain Dubai.
Before you embark on a ride around the impressive wheel, you must decide on what ticket to purchase. Most tours include a 38-minute experience, all within a spacious air-conditioned cabin, with room to roam and explore. Once you begin to ascend into the sky, you can see spectacular 360 views of The Palm Jumeirah, Dubai Marina, and even spot the Burj Al Arab. Why not take your event to new heights? Ain Dubai offers personalised events from their impressive cabins, perfect for memorable parties or unique corporate events.
The excitement doesn’t end there; below the Ain, there are plenty of amusements to keep you and your party entertained. Bluewater’s Island is home to a range of delicious eateries, shoreside shopping spots and epic attractions. Funky hangout – Brass Monkey is a modern bowling center with a huge arcade to keep all ages amused. Another frequented spot on the island is the World-famous attraction Madame Tussauds, which is home to some life-like wax figures of famous celebrities and superstars such as Jackie Chan and Audrey Hepburn. The island is worth a visit simply for a walk along the coast and across the bridge; it’s an ideal viewing point for beautiful seafront views of the mainland.
