The Dubai-based attraction first closed down in mid-March for “periodic enhancements” and said it would reopen for the Eid al-Fitr weekend after the holy month of Ramadan.

Ain Dubai, also known as the Dubai Eye, did not reveal an official reopening date.

“Ain Dubai’s temporary closure period, for enhancement works, will be extended through the summer months. Once a reopening date is set, a further announcement will be made,” the statement read.
