World’s Tallest Ferris Wheel, Which Takes 38 Minutes to Ride, Opens in Dubai


This ferris wheel is so terrifying that you would want to be stuck on it.

Ain Dubai, Arabic for “Dubai Eye,”Officially, the 820 foot tall Ferris wheel is the largest and most expensive in the world.

Ferris wheels worldwide, like Florida’s Orlando Eye, the Tianjin Eye in China, and the UK’s London Eye, let tourists see the sights from up above.

The Dubai Eye can accommodate 1,750 people at a given time and is nearly twice the size of London Eye.

It’s not a new thing to break a Dubai world record.

The Dubai Mall, measuring nearly 12 million square feet, is located in this part of the United Arab Emirates. Burj Khalifa is also the world’s highest tower.

It took eight years to construct the Dubai Eye. As it takes 38 minutes to make a full rotation, pretty sure they aren’t recommending the Dubai Eye for anyone afraid of heights.
