Dubai Eye ferris wheel opens with fireworks

Located on the Bluewaters Island, the 'Dubai Eye' - known as 'Ain Dubai' in Arabic, stands at a little over 820 feet tall (250 meters).

It can take 1,750 visitors on one rotation, which takes just over 30 minutes.

The Dubai Eye is the latest attraction to open in the region's tourism and business hub, after the waxwork museum Madame Tussauds opened earlier this week.

Dubai is hoping to attract millions to the Expo 2020 world fair, which opened earlier in October, after a year-long delay due to the coronavirus pandemic.
