Video: Sheikh Hamdan steals the show with spectacular ride atop Ain Dubai


What's it like to have your cup of coffee at 250 metres above the famed Dubai skyline?

Well, nothing short of spectacular. 

A new video posted by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai's Crown Prince and Chairman of the Executive Council, shows him taking a breathtaking spin on the world's largest observation wheel - Ain Dubai.

Only, he isn't seated inside the cabin, but on top of it.

Sheikh Hamdan also posted a picture with the technicians who helped him complete the ride safely, with the caption: "A harness and a blue sky".

Ain Dubai officially opened its doors to the public on Thursday, with a host of exciting celebratory events to mark the occasion.
