Finally, the long wait is over as Dubai Frame will be open to the public from next week. This will be another iconic structure in the skyline of Dubai, which includes Burj Khalifa and Burj Al Arab.
Hussain Lootah, director general of Dubai Municipality, said, “The official opening of Dubai Frame will be next week. Unlike the Dubai Safari, the Dubai Frame will accept only a specific number of people at a time, and the tour will have to be pre-booked through an app and a website that will soon be launched.”
He said, “We are working with Etisalat to launch the website very soon. Through it, people can pre-book their tour.”
Dubai residents and visitors will have the option of buying a paper ticket or purchasing one online. The ticketing system is inspired by 'At The Top' of Burj Khalifa experience, where people have to pre-book their tour that will only accept a specific number of people at a time.
Visitors to the iconic structure will enjoy a journey through time for only AED50 for adults and AED30 for children. Free tickets will be offered for children under three and people over 60.
Dubai Frame will provide visitors with a 360-degree view of Dubai as they walk through a 93-metre glass bridge to see old Dubai from the north and modern Dubai from the south. The rectangular structure, consisting of two 150-metre towers, connects the past and present of Dubai.
The Frame has interior spaces on the ground floor (the horizontal rib bottom of the frame) for exhibitions, displaying details of old Dubai in pictures and showing how the city has evolved since the sixties and what it looks like now.
The ground floor ends at the main panoramic elevator, which goes up through the rib of the Frame to the top floor. On reaching the top, tourists will have a bird’s-eye view of old Dubai and a new Dubai in contrast.
