The Burj Khalifa hasn't even been open a week yet and the ticket prices are already on the rise tickets to the 124th floor observatory, At The Top.
It now costs Dhs400 to grab a fast track ticket at the door and Dhs100 if you book 24 in advance.
Standard tickets costing Dh100 for adults and Dh75 for children between three and 12 are available from the entrance on the lower ground floor of Dubai Mall.
They are stamped with a timed entry at 30-minute intervals to manage crowds. People are carried 28 at a time in a double-decker lift at 10 metres a second.
The fast-track booth, where only a handful of people were waiting yesterday, is just inside the entrance and allows immediate entry. An online ticket booking service is not yet operational.
