While the act of viewing a city from a high observation point still commands public interest, an increasing number of new and remodeled existing observation decks have brought additional excitement to the table. From transparent slides that cling to the sides of buildings, to roller coasters and 3-D interactive technology, the contemporary observation deck has increasingly become a total experience in order to compete. Taking place on the glass-floored bridge of the recently opened Dubai Frame, this session examines several of the most “extreme” experiences around the world.

About This Program Location

Dubai Frame

About Dubai Frame

The AED160 million ($43.6 million) project comprises a 150-meter-high, 93-meter-wide structure, built to resemble a huge picture frame, through which landmarks representing modern Dubai, such as Emirates Towers and Burj Khalifa, can be seen on one side. From the other side, visitors can view older parts of the city such as Deira, Umm Harare and Karama. The location of the giant rectangular frame is in Zabeel Park; it was carefully chosen to give visitors the best view of both old and new Dubai. Its exterior design was inspired by the Expo 2020 logo.

Most spectacularly, its two towers are connected by a 100-meter-long bridge, which has a 25-square-meter glass panel in the middle offering a great 360-degree view.
