Spiral staircase takes Burj Khalifa tours to another level

The iconic Burj Khalifa has unveiled a new spiral staircase that takes its popular observationk deck tour to another level.

While Level 124 is home to At the Top, Burj Khalifa, the observation deck that opened in 2010, Level 125 is now part of the At the Top Burj Khalifa SKY journey that takes visitors to the world's highest observation deck on Level 148.

From now, visitors who opt for the At the Top, Burj Khalifa experience can also tour Level 125 free of cost with the opening of the new spiral flight, a statement said.

The spiral flight, with 36 steps in white oak and spanning a length of 100 metres, is adorned with a crystal LED chandelier, and enclosed in a glass clad facade that open to scintillating views of the city.

Premium ticket holders to At the Top, Burj Khalifa SKY now have the opportunity to visit all three levels 124, 125 and 148, which is the crowning glory at 555 metres high.

They will now have additional space to move about and take in the views of the city, especially during sunset, when the attraction is at its busiest, the statement added.

After enjoying the views from Level 124, visitors can now explore one level higher, which serves as a tribute to Arab arts and culture.

Dubai - A Falcon's Eye View is another attraction at Level 125 that allows visitors to witness Dubai with an entirely unique perspective.

The spiral flight is built with 60 metric tonnes of steel, 700 square metres of glass, and 350 sq metres of stainless steel cladding. At any point in time, 150 people can pass through the stairway.

Ticket prices are currently an average of AED125 for At the Top, Burj Khalifa, and AED500 for At the Top, Burj Khalifa SKY.
