Ain Dubai would elevate guests to a height of 250 metres, about twice that of the London Eye, and will provide them with a magnificent perspective of Dubai’s gorgeous skyline. The wheel has 48 capsules that can hold 1,750 people, with each ride lasting around 38 minutes. It offers 76-minute sessions that start with one spin and go up to two rotations.

Unique celebration packages are also available at the destination. Birthdays, engagements, weddings, and business gatherings will all be possible with these. The private cabins can be adapted to accommodate a variety of occasions ranging from intimate gatherings to cultural celebrations to pamper VIP guests.
