I've been documenting the construction of Bluewaters Island and Ain Dubai since my first visit to Dubai in January 2014, before we moved here the end of the same year.
I've been regularly updating posts and in September 2020 on my last trip here they had started to put the pods/capsules on The World's Tallest Ferris Wheel .
It is expected to open in December 2020, a couple of months late due to the postponement of Expo 2020 due to Covid.
The pods are now on, since my last visit here 2 months ago. I'm undecided if I'll be going on it or not. I don't mind heights, but I don't like small spaces and the inability to leave when I choose.
Wow, it is so tall! I'm like you - don't like small spaces or the inability to leave, which is why I struggle with flying. I went on the London Eye a couple of times in the early days, but you wouldn't catch me on it any more.ReplyDelete
the ability not to leave is what causes me issues, I'm not sure I feel the need to go on/in itDelete
Well the world's tallest ferris wheel was going to be nowehere else But Dubai was it?? Fascinating to see such an engineering feat coming together like this. As for going on it, maybe wait until the threat of COVID has passed?? Being in small spaces is one thing but being in them during a global health pandemic with total strangers is something else entirely!ReplyDelete
I'm avoiding lifts for this very reason at the momentDelete
You ahve to be quite far away to get it all in a photoDelete
So neat to see the process - I bet the views are spectacular!ReplyDelete
I imagine they will beDelete
Wow! That is so big! I am not a fan of heights so going on it would be my worst nightmare. I bet the views are amazing though xReplyDelete
Heights aren't my problem, it's enclosed spaces and too many peopleDelete
I remember reading about this, incredible height for a wheel. I'm not sure I'd be that keen on itReplyDelete
Thank you for linking up to #MySundayPhoto
I'm not in a hurry to be going on itDelete
