One of Dubai skyline’s most recent welcome additions has now officially opened its doors to the public.

Since the 1st January the 150-metre high rectangle of Dubai Frame has provided residents and tourists with a breathtaking new viewing platform to drink in the rolling cityscape of new and old Dubai.

After being rescheduled several times, the launch date for the AED 160 million building eventually was moved to New Year’s Day 2018. Now with its sleek gold-coloured stainless steel cladding in place, visitors can ride in lifts up to the 93-metre observation bridge and enjoy spectacular 360 degree views.

We previously reported on the scheduled costs of the tickets, and from the impressive (and frankly terrifying) social media posts of the attraction’s early visitors, it seems like the cost of admission is a price worth paying.

As well as spectacular views, the Dubai Frame includes an interactive exhibition that tells the story of Dubai past and present.

Would you be able to walk the glass floor without gripping to the sides, sweating uncontrollably and choking, snot-faced, on muffled sobs? Yep. Sure, us too.

Online tickets aren’t available yet, but you can buy them from Gate 4 of the Dubai Frame’s home in Zabeel Park, priced at AED 50 for adults and AED 20 for children (with free entry for under threes and people of determination).

10am-7pm daily.
