The management team at Al Qasba in Sharjah has announced temporary closure of the Eye of the Emirates Wheel which would undergo a major maintenance from today.
The Ferris wheel will be dismantled for maintenance from today and is expected to be assembled and reopen for the public in October this year.
“Our priority is the sustainability and continuity in providing premium services and unique experiences to all our visitors and tourists at Al Qasba. This major maintenance will allow us to dismantle and reassemble the 60 meter construct (approx. 197 feet), and allow us to perform all necessary maintenance procedures and measures. Furthermore, the maintenance process on the Eye of the Emirates Wheel will be completed at a very prime time of the year, which is expected to welcome back tourists and visitors with a more sensational reappearance during a much cooler season in October 2016” said Al Qasba Manager Sultan Mohammed Shattaf.
He concluded: “Only a limited section which surrounds the Ferris wheel at Al Qasba will be closed temporarily, while all our restaurants, cafes, art centres, the Kids Fun Zone, entertainment activities and other facilities will continue to operate normally.”
