Standing at a staggering height of over 820 feet — nearly double the London Eye — the newly-opened Ain Dubai is now the tallest and largest observation wheel in the world.

Located on the island destination of Bluewaters, Ain Dubai is right at home in a city already known for spectacular construction records, including the world’s tallest building: the 2,722-foot Burj Khalifa. Another staggering statistic is that it took 11,200 metric tons of steel to build the massive wheel, which is one-third more than to build Paris’ Eiffel Tower.

Followed at a distance by the 550-foot High Roller at the Linq Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, the record-breaking wheel provides 360-degree views of the city in 48 air-conditioned observation cabins that can accommodate 1,750 visitors simultaneously.

Visitors can book tickets for the 38-minute rotation in a shared or private cabin.
