Ain Dubai closes temporarily with immediate effect

The attraction will reopen on the Eid Al Fitr holiday weekend


Ain Dubai, the world’s largest and tallest observation wheel, located on Bluewaters Island will close down temporarily.

A statement posted on its website on Monday attributed “periodic enhancements” as the reason of the closure, and added that the attraction will be closed starting immediately and right through the month of Ramadan and will reopen on the Eid Al Fitr holiday weekend.

“Over the coming weeks and as part of our commitment to continuously develop the unrivaled guest experience, we will work closely with our customer team and key partners to introduce new and exciting offerings bound to wow visitors. We look forward to welcoming our visitors back for our planned reopening, scheduled for the Eid Al Fitr holiday weekend,” noted the statement.

Ain Dubai opened to the public on October 21, 2021, with tickets prices starting from Dhs130. At 250-metres, Ain Dubai is almost twice the height of the London Eye. There was 11,000 tonnes of steel used to construct it – twice as much as was used in the Eiffel Tower.
