Construction of the World’s Tallest Ferris Wheel
Dubai Eye will be the biggest Ferris wheel in the world.

At 210m high, Dubai Eye will overtake the new High Roller in Las Vegas and will be part of the $1.6bn Bluewaters Island development, off the coast of Dubai’s Jumeirah Beach Residence. 

“We are on Bluewaters Island… Dubai Eye is going to be the biggest Ferris wheel in the world,” says the unnamed official in the video published by Pure Arabia DMC on behind the scenes video of City Walk, Rainforest and Dubai Eye.

Around the wheel (Dubai Eye) will be a large plaza with various dining and retail experiences with the island being augmented with four entertainment attractions making it really a place that you can come and visit for the whole day or may be stay in one of the two hotels and for a longer period of time, the official asserts.

Revealing the details of the Dubai Eye, he says the first thing that will happen is that one will go through a 4D cinema that will give the essential facts about Dubai. Then one will take two escalators up to the lower platform and enter the capsule and join the flight of the wheel approximately 48 minutes in duration as it goes up.

As one exits the wheel, there will be an opportunity to go through the visitor centre where one can view a film on the work to actually the fireworks for the grand finale.
