On October 21, local time, in Dubai, UAE, the world’s largest and tallest Ferris wheel, known as the “Dubai Eye”, opened.
It is understood that the Ferris wheel is more than 250 meters high, which is about twice the size of the “London Eye”. About 11,200 tons of steel were used in the construction, which is 33% more than the steel used to build the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
The “Dubai Eye” Ferris wheel consists of 48 double-glazed cabins, which can carry up to 1,750 passengers at a time, and it takes 38 minutes to make a full circle.
