Four world records broken in Downtown Dubai
It wouldn’t be a stretch to say that Downtown Dubai deserves its own chapter in the Guinness Book of World Records!
Biggest OLED display
The Dubai Mall takes the crown for the world’s largest OLED display screen – no surprise considering the mall itself is the second largest in the world.
- 820 OLED panels, each 55 inches large were used to build it.
- Total surface area spans 709 square metres – enough to park 60 mid-sized sedans.
- The display comprises 1,700,352,000 pixels, or enough to fill over 750 typical cinemas.
- It’s visible from all three floors of the mall.
It’s the tallest man-made structure ever, but just how tall is Burj Khalifa?
- It rivals three Eiffel Towers or two Empire State Buildings stacked one over the other
- Can hold 10,000 people – nearly the entire population of Judenburg, Austria.
- So tall you can watch the sun set over the horizon from the base, and again from the top.
Largest light and sound show on a building
The unprecedented new year festivities of 2018 made certain that Burj Khalifa would go down in history.
- The spectacle spanned an area of over 109,000 square metres – the size of 20 football fields!
- Over 80 musicians from the UAE were involved in composing the music.
- Preparations took more than five months to perfect.
Largest choreographed fountain
The Dubai Fountain’s impressive light and sound display makes it the world’s largest choreographed fountain.
- 6,600 lights and 50 coloured projectors portray over 1,000 water expressions.
- Jets of water are blasted to the height of a 45-storey tower – over 500 feet.
- The layout of nozzles comprises five circular arrangements, connected by two arcs.
- Over 83,000 litres of water are in the air at any moment when it’s in operation.
- It’s 275 metres in length and resides within the 30-acre Burj Lake.
