Tickets for the At the Top, Burj Khalifa tour, which includes a visit to the world highest observation deck on Level 124 of Burj Khalifa will cost adults Dhs100 and children Dhs75, Emaar said on Monday.
It will open its doors to the public from Tuesday with tickets time stamped at 30-minute intervals, on specific days, to manage the daily number of sightseers.
For those who do not want to queue to get in, immediate entry is Dhs210 per person, subject to availability, the company said in a statement.
The entrance to the experience At the Top, Burj khalifa is at the adjoining The Dubai Mall's Lower Ground level and the reception area features a fibreglass model of the tower illuminated in blue light.
An interactive feature 'Burj Around the World' allows visitors to view Burj Khalifa on the skyline of other famous cities while two multimedia presentations, 'Burj Khalifa Among the Greats' and 'Tallest Among the Tall', will feature other iconic tall buildings from around the world.
Past an airport-style security gate, visitors are immersed in the history of Dubai as they are escorted along a 65-metre travelator which takes them to the 'From the earth to the sky', through which they view the tower's spire at a near vertical angle and its observation deck on the 124th floor.
The ascent to the 124th floor is by a double-deck elevator, each deck carrying up to 14 people and travelling at an amazing 10 metres per second directly to Level 124.
In less than 60 seconds, the elevator reaches the observation deck, the world's only public observation deck with an outdoor terrace at this height.

Dubai always known for extravagant rich glamorous things, not for passion, compassion, kindlness. It's always there in top level when it comes for thnings which money can buy, but is nothing when money can;t buy it like art, literature, culture, humanity, social values, freedom of speech. This country has procuded nothing, has no skilled work force on their own, doesn;t have any specialization in any aspect apart from spending lavishly (coming from where, nobody knows). How they are dreaming of becoming world's leading city, it's only they know...

Always the same problem here in UAE, How could a family of 4 can afford a 400dhs visit for 10 minutes.....everythings is too expensive especially when it comes to family activities. Dubai and Abu Dhabi do not think in term of general tourism but only DE LUXE tourism.
Even if we are working here with a decent salary, the price are such a struggle problem.
