With the growth of technological progress, the list of wonders of the world is gradually losing relevance, as diverse new architectural masterpieces that amaze with beauty and grandeur appear. The historical and cultural importance of the pyramids in Giza or the ruins of the ancient Colosseum is difficult to overestimate and nobody does it. However, the structures that are being built among the desert dunes, in the homeland of emirs and sheiks - in luxurious Dubai, are also not deprived of the people's attention. Now the list of man-made wonders is replenished with a new masterpiece - the Ain Dubai wheel.
"Eye of Dubai": a gift for Expo-2020
The Dubai Emirate gravitates not only to golden Lamborghinis and incredibly expensive yachts - this city has long and firmly taken over the virus of uncontrollable megalomania. One look at the majestic Sail Tower, the incredible Burj Khalifa skyscraper, or the kilometer-long Creek Tower is enough to prove it. Nevertheless, the Dubai authorities are not going to stop. So, by the opening of the World Expo 2020, a new attraction will open in the city - the tallest observation wheel in the world symbolically called the Eye of Dubai.
It will leave behind the huge 135-meter wheel in London, the 160-meter Chinese "Star of Nanchang", as well as the Singapore Flyer and the American High Roller, which are all the largest attractions in this category at the moment. What do oriental engineers delight humanity with?
The pearl of the Blue Waters island: where Ain Dubai is built
Ain Dubai is located on one of the man-made islands. In addition to the titanic attraction, several apartment buildings and townhouses are located on the territory of Bluewaters Island, the cost of apartments in which amounts to tens of millions of dollars. An elite area has came to life on the Blue Waters island, connected to the no less prestigious location of Dubai Marina by a 300-meter long bridge. Around the Ferris wheel, there are shopping centers, bars, conceptual cafes and restaurants, boutiques of world-famous brands, a mosque, and two luxurious five-star hotels. Another man-made miracle that will soon appear here is the sparkling Dubai SuperTrees. They are reminiscent of the colorful glass gardens of Singapore.
Directly near the attraction, a cable car will be opened, a comfortable beach and an extensive entertainment area will be laid out. On the magical Arabian island, washed by the azure waters of the Persian Gulf, there will be everything you may need for a comfortable and fun life in fabulous luxury.
Dimensions are impressive
The incredible wheel has been under construction for six years. Its construction involved two of the world's tallest tower cranes, rising to 180 meters. This is not surprising: Ain Dubai’s height is 210 meters, which is equivalent to a 57-story skyscraper. The weight of the attraction is 7,500 tons, that is, it is equal to 40 blue whales - the largest mammals on the planet, or 16 Airbus A380s!
What else can Ain Dubai surprise with?
The insanely rich Arab state is counting on an annual flow of visitors to the wheel, reaching up to 3 million people. It is likely that these hopes will come true.
View from above: what tourists will see from Ain Dubai
Given the incredible height, visitors to the attraction will enjoy unforgettable views of the emirate's coast and clearly see the following sights:
All of the above, together with the neighboring area of Dubai Marina, looks especially fascinating at night when the torches of giant skyscrapers are lit, millions of colorful fiery shadows come to life, flickering from the height of the Ain Dubai, like stars that have fallen to the ground.
Gardens of coral-pink openwork trees, “growing” at the foot of the wheel, look from such a height like tiny neon mushrooms hidden among the foliage. In general, the viewing radius of Ain Dubai is about fifty kilometers. This means that in the daytime, tourists will be able to see the vast expanses of the waterless, withering desert of Rub al-Khali, holding the city in a hot embrace.
How to get to the place?
Those wishing to try a modern wonder of the world - Ain Dubai, definitely have to visit Bluewaters Island. There are several ways to get to the island. Let's take a look at those.
