Popular Predecessors Of Ain Dubai

Ain Dubai is inspired by The London Eye, built in the year 2000. At an altitude of 135 meters, it remained the largest of its kind in the world until superseded by the 160-meter-high Nanchang Star in 2006. Both the London Eye and the Nanchang Star were superseded by the Singapore Flyer, built in 2008, standing at 165 meters. In 2014, this title was taken over by the High Roller in Las Vegas. All these wheels have now been safely placed into the list of has-beens by the magnificent Ain Dubai, standing at a height of 250 meters.

Amazing Ain Dubai Features

Ain Dubai weighs more tons than one could imagine. The hub and spindle of the giant observation wheel were manufactured externally and put together in the UAE. Both sit firmly on the Ain Dubai’s 126-meter-high legs, forming a stretch of 40 meters, with a height of 20 meters. 192 spoke cables have been used to connect the wheel’s hub to the rim.

48 seat capsules come with a collective capacity, to hold up to 1,750 visitors at a time. Two of the world’s largest cranes have been deputized to put Ain Dubai together. Each crane is equipped with a 180-meter-long boom, and can lift an unbelievable 3,000 tons! That’s like lifting 11 Airbus A380s at a single time! It took four weeks to weld the spindle frames to the four legs of the structure, and it was the two cranes that held up the weight of the entire unit during this time!

The 6.25-meter-wide spindle is made of the kind of steel that is used at nuclear plants. They are rolled and welded so skillfully that you can be assured of their absolute safety during the ride. Rigorously supervised by independent third party engineers, Ain Dubai’s structural soundness and safety are beyond reproach. A million complex calculations lie behind every aspect of load balancing, even if the observation wheel is not fully loaded with people.

You’ll then experience the gentle thrill of being lifted up in smooth strong arms, the weight of the structure delicately balanced on the nuclear-steel hub, legs, and spindle. Ain Dubai takes all of 38 minutes to make a full rotation – 38 minutes of utter heart-pounding excitement that await you.

Apart from these, the major draw is the views that you get to admire during the spin. As it rides you up and around, see the whole of Bluewaters Island, JBR and Dubai Marina, among others.
