The massive Ain Dubai, the world’s largest Ferris wheel, was opened to the public on October 21.

The 820-foot Ain Dubai was greenlit for construction in 2013 and is currently the world’s largest and tallest ferris wheel. With almost twice the height of the previous record holder, the 440-foot London Eye, the structure is envisioned to boost tourism in the burgeoning entertainment hub.

Each cabin on the wheel can hold up to 40 passengers, for a maximum seating capacity of a whopping 1,750 people. However, patience is required for those willing to go on the gigantic ride, as it takes about 38 minutes to make a full rotation.
