The Dubai Eye will be around 260 to 262 meters tall and will have a diameter of around 250 meters.
The duration of one rotation of the wheel will span around 48 minutes while giving you the best and unparalleled view of the beautiful Dubai. Apart from the wheel, the area will also have a 4D cinema that introduces visitors to the beauty of Dubai and many entertainment and dining facilities.
The Dubai Eye will also have around 48 luxury capsules where you can enjoy beautiful views while having a simple meal or you can probably arrange for a romantic set up. Imagine proposing to that someone special on the Dubai Eye. Pretty dreamy, eh?
