Ain Dubai is a giant Ferris Wheel, slowly becoming an iconic symbol of modern Dubai. 

Standing at nearly 250 meters (820 ft), it is the tallest observation wheel in the World.

The massive rotating wheel offers 360-degree views of the Dubai skyline from its 48-passenger cabins.

From the air-conditioned cabins of Ain Dubai, visitors can see Dubai’s beautiful coastline and Dubai Marina’s impressive skyline.

Burj Al Arab, Palm Jumeirah, and the Burj Khalifa are the most famous landmarks visible from the Ferris wheel.

The wheel rotates slowly, taking about 48 minutes for a full revolution, allowing visitors ample time to enjoy the breathtaking views of the city.

Whether during the day or night, a ride on AIN Dubai offers a memorable experience and is a must-visit destination for tourists and residents alike.

This article shares everything you need to know before buying Ain Dubai tickets. 

Ain Dubai Wheel

What to expect at Ain Dubai

Ain Dubai takes you to dizzying heights from where you enjoy the best of Dubai’s impressive architecture.

If you want to make the most of the view, purchase tickets for the sunset times and watch the sun go down beyond the Persian Gulf’s horizon.

On a clear day, you will see from Bluewaters to Dubai Marina and JBR, across Burj Al Arab Jumeirah and the Burj Khalifa, and over the Arabian Gulf.

The maximum capacity of a standard View Cabin is 40 guests.

Guests usually don’t experience motion sickness in the cabin since the wheel moves slowly.
