What to expect at Sky Views Dubai
Sky Views Dubai is a three-in-one attraction with a lot of glass all around, ensuring the adrenalin rush.
You will take a thrilling ride in the panoramic glass elevator to more than 219.5 meters above the ground.
The main attraction is the observation deck offering views of Dubai city, and once you have taken in the views from all directions, you can try the glass walkway.
The glass walkway is 46 meters (150 feet) long and connects the two towers.
The other two attractions are the Glass Slide and Edge Walk.
The Glass Slide
The Dubai Sky Views’s Glass Slide is an actual slide, just that it is made of glass and is at the height of 219.5 meters (720 feet).
