Yet another glittery addition to the Dubai skyline, Ain Dubai is the world’s tallest observation wheel that towers over Dubai’s Bluewaters region. Standing 250 meters tall, Ain Dubai is hard to miss, and started welcoming guests in late 2021.

Did You Know: Ain Dubai clocks in at around twice the height of the London Eye?

What To Expect Upon Entry

The building of Ain Dubai is a sight to marvel in its own right. You’ll be greeted into a modern reception area, bathed in white, with giant columns towering around you. An eye-catching feature (that the GM refers to as a “chandelier”) gives you a sneak peek at the observation wheel’s structure and its revolving cabins that you will soon board. Keep going to the platform that acts as an entryway into the cabins. Remember that Ain Dubai never stops rotating, so you’ll have to hop on while it slowly moves.

Ain Dubai

Tip: It is advised that you arrive 30 minutes before to complete the check-in process, use the washrooms, and buy snacks.

Inside The Cabins

Once you’re inside, watch the doors close behind you. It is now time to feast your eyes on what lies ahead of you: Dubai through a glass pod! The slow and smooth motion of the wheel gives you uninterrupted views of Bluewaters Island and its surroundings. Notice the outline of Palm Jumeirah and the Burj Al Arab right away. As you go higher up, the Dubai coastline and Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR) begin to take shape. On your way down, you’ll get the best views of The Atlantis.

The air-conditioned and temperature-controlled cabins add to your comfort. They are also rather spacious, so feel free to roam about as you soak in remarkable views through glass walls.

Ain Dubai

Tip: The best views are unsurprisingly bound to arrive when your pod is at the top of the wheel- so save your battery charge until then!

When To Visit?

Your experience in Ain Dubai varies vastly depending on the time of visit. Time slots are available throughout the day: from noon to night. The sunset views are, predictably, touted as the best time slot to book. Ain Dubai at night is also an experience you won’t forget- as we all know, Dubai’s skyline sparks to life at night. With the blue waters having taken an inky-black shade, you’ll see the JBR, Palm Jumeirah, and the Dubai skyline twinkle against it.

Ain Dubai

Tip: If you’re big on photography, it is not recommended to book the night slot. The reflections on the curved glass walls can easily become a photographer’s worst nightmare.

Which Ticket To Buy?

Ain Dubai offers quite a few ticket options to choose from. The Standard Day/Night View ticket option lets you pick from a handful of time slots (12 Noon, 1 PM, 2 PM, 3 PM, 8 PM & 9 PM). You also have the Prime Time ticket option that promises a visual treat at sunset with time slots between 5 PM to 7 PM. Want to add a little excitement to your 38-minute tour? Swing for the Lounge View + Beverage ticket option that lets you sip on a drink while gazing out at Dubai’s vibrant skyline.

Ain Dubai

These are the ticket options we have available. Of course, Ain Dubai also offers a few other fun options- you can rent out an entire cabin for special functions: whether it’s your birthday, a fun family get-together, or date night, Ain Dubai has got you covered.

(These tickets can be bought directly at Ain Dubai). Once you are done with the ride, the surrounding area on Bluewaters Island is filled with fantastic shopping, dining, and sightseeing options.

Ain Dubai

Tip: Hop out of the still-moving cabin and head to the gift shop. Pick up an Ain Dubai-themed souvenir: from cups to T-shirts to water bottles, they've got it all.
