The opening of the biggest Ferris wheel in the world, the Ain Dubai, is planned for early 2019, but you can already make a round in another Ferris wheel in Dubai.
The Ferris wheel is on the south side of the Dubai Festival City Mall and is part of the new section of the popular Festival Bay. The “Festival Wheel” as the Ferris wheel is called 30 capsules and is 40 meters high. From the Ferris wheel you have a magnificent view of the Dubai Creek, the nature park with its flamingos and the impressive skyline of Dubai with the Burj Khalifa.
Prices and opening times
The Ferris wheel is open daily from 14:00 to midnight. For the ultimate experience, we recommend taking a ride on the Ferris wheel during the sunset or during the IMAGINE fountain show that can be admired daily at the Dubai Festival City Mall.
A ride with the Festival Wheel costs 40 dirham for adults, children under 12 pay 25 dirhams. There is also a special Family Pass for 100 dirhams with which two adults and two children can access the Ferris wheel.
Do you want a VIP treatment? There is a special VIP capsule which you can book for 300 dirham. Here you can make a round trip with six people in the Ferris wheel in a capsule with a glass bottom and leather chairs.
