Ain Dubai to close for seven weeks until end of Ramadan

The Bluewaters Island attraction to close for ‘enhancements’

Ain Dubai, the world’s tallest observation wheel, will close from Monday until Eid Al Fitr to allow for “enhancements”.

The Bluewaters Island attraction has established itself as part of Dubai‘s skyline since it opened in October last year.

Standing at more than 250 metres tall – about twice the height of the London Eye – the wheel offers views of landmarks including Burj Al Arab and The Palm Jumeirah from its 48 cabins.

Hundreds of thousands of people have visited the attraction since it opened, the attraction’s website said.

The landmark will remain closed for about seven weeks as it undergoes improvements to “introduce new and exciting offerings”.

“For periodic enhancements, Ain Dubai will be closed from today and throughout the Holy Month of Ramadan,” it said.

“Over the coming weeks and as part of our commitment to continuously develop the unrivalled 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.”
