Massive new wheel opens at Dubai Festival City

The Festival Wheel is a 40-metre-tall attraction, now open daily

There’s a brand-new attraction at Dubai Festival City Mall – a huge new observation wheel.

The Festival Wheel has been built on the south side of Festival Bay and will be open for visitors to enjoy throughout the year.

It features 30 capsules to ride in, and stands at 40 metres high.

Visitors will be able to enjoy views across the city, which will be especially spectacular at sunset and during the IMAGINE fountain shows. The wheel will turn from 2pm until midnight every day.

“The opening of the Festival Wheel adds another dimension to our already bustling Festival Bay,” says Steven Cleaver, Director, Shopping Centres Dubai, Al-Futtaim Group Real Estate.

“With a full calendar of activity lined up for the next couple of months and a wide selection of waterfront dining options, there is always a new experience for shoppers at Dubai Festival City Mall.”

You’ll be able to take a ride on the Festival Wheel for Dhs40 per adult and Dhs25 per child under 12. A family pass for Dhs100 enables two adults and two kids to experience the views, while a VIP capsule for Dhs300 takes six people and has a glass floor and plush leather seating.
