Here’s what we know so far…

The world’s largest observation wheel, located on Bluewaters Island, is still set to reopen this month, an update sent via Instagram on March 6 2023 has confirmed.

Back in March 2022, Ain Dubai announced it would close throughout Ramadan, however, the temporary closure was extended ‘until Q1, 2023’.

Although we don’t know the official date of reopening, Ain Dubai confirmed in an Instagram message that the wheel is still set on opening in Q1 2023. That means that it should be sometime this month that visitors are able to check out the record-breaking attraction. However, for the moment, bookings still aren’t open.

According to the same message, operators “have been working rigorously to complete enhancement works over the past months. Once an official reopening date is set, a further announcement will be made.”

As was promised when the initial closure was announced, they reiterated they will introduce ‘new and exciting offers’ when Ain Dubai reopens. We’re suitably intrigued.

One of Dubai’s most anticipated attractions, Ain Dubai, finally opened on October 21, 2021. The world’s tallest observation wheel is a 250 metre rotating attraction, now recognised as the tallest and largest observation wheel in the world. It’s 82 metres higher than the High Roller in Las Vegas and almost twice the size of the London Eye. The 48 cabins provide a 360-degree view of Bluewaters Island, Dubai Marina and JBR, Burj Al Arab, Burj Khalifa, and over the Arabian Gulf.

In the six months it was open, Ain Dubai welcomed hundreds of thousands of visitors from across the globe, according to its website.
