Sharjah’s ‘Eye of the Emirates’ moves to Al Montazah Parks


March 7, 2018 | By RetailME Bureau

One of Sharjah’s most recognisable landmarks, the ‘Eye of the Emirates’ wheel is to be completely relocated from Al Qasba to Al Montazah Parks, the emirate’s amusement and water park.

In the new location the Eye of the Emirates – which is 60 meters high with 42 cabins – will offer even more spectacular bird’s eye views across the landscape to a larger number of residents and visitors.

The move will provide the emirate’s tourists supreme panoramas over the city’s major attractions and famous markets, such as the Central Souq, Al Jubail Souq, Al Majaz Waterfront, Khalid Lagoon, The Flag Island, Al Noor Island, Al Noor Mosque and various government entities in Al Layya. It will also be easily accessible to visitors, marking a new era for the wheel, opening a brand new avenue of tourism investment for Sharjah.

Commenting on the development, Marwan bin Jassim Al Sarkal, CEO of Shurooq, “We are enormously grateful to His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah for his support and confidence in this project. The relocation of the Eye of the Emirates, Sharjah’s icon, to Al Montazah Parks aligns with Shurooq’s strategy that aims to develop its tourist and recreational destinations, and provide residents and visitors with the opportunity to enjoy Shurooq’s attractions. The new location of the Eye of the Emirates will enhance its importance, given the broader views it will feature.”

“The Eye of the Emirates will be one of the arrays of state-of- the-art facilities and world-class services at Al Montazah Park that meet the aspiration of all visitors, especially that at the new location it will overlook many premiere tourist destinations in the emirate of Sharjah. It will have a positive impact on the flow of tourists and visitors and provide them with the opportunity to enjoy a horizontal bird’s eye view of the city,” he adds.
