Al Qasba wheel brought down for major maintenance.

The Eye of the Emirates Wheel has started major maintenance from July 13 and will reopen to the public by October 2016, the management team at Sharjah's Al Qasba has announced.

The temporary closure of the Ferris wheel will "dismantle and reassemble the 60m construct, and allow us to perform all necessary maintenance procedures and measures," according to Sultan Mohammed Shattaf, Al Qasba manager.

"The major maintenance plan is part of our commitment in delivering visitors and tourists the opportunity to experience one of the most remarkable and most-favoured landmarks in Sharjah and the UAE under a safe and secure environment," he said.

"Our priority is the sustainability and continuity in providing premium services and unique experiences to all our visitors and tourists at Al Qasba. 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" added Shattaf, Emirates 24/7 reported.


Only a limited section which surrounds the Ferris wheel at Al Qasba will be closed temporarily, according to Al Qasba manager.

All the restaurants, cafes, art centres, the Kids Fun Zone, entertainment activities and other facilities will continue to operate normally.
