It is no surprise to anyone that Dubai holds numerous Guinness World Records already, and this New Year’s Eve they have sent their sights on adding another two to the list.
Having achieved World Records for the last 2 years running: in 2018 they set the record for the largest aerial shell weighing 1087.26kg and reached a height of around 1127m and on New Year’s Eve 2019, they broke a further two with one for the longest chain of fireworks and secondly for the longest straight line of fireworks in one display.
For 2020 the tourism officials have promised the #RAKNYE2020 will be one of the biggest and best performances yet as they have fireworks, laser pyro drones, and other pyrotechnics on offer to usher in the New Year.
The countdown to 2020 will be opened by the pyro drones that shoot out fireworks and then watch the skies above being lit up in a kaleidoscope of colours and effects as the fireworks along with special Japanese aerial shell fireworks are released into the night sky.
As well as the pyrotechnics, there is plenty to do on the ground as starting from around 5pm, there will be kids activities, food trucks, ice cream stands, live performances, celebrity guests including top performers from around the world gathering together to make the evening one of biggest and best to have ever been seen before.
There are three new venues that have been allocated to watch the fireworks are next to Al Hamra village – Al Shohadah Street and Al Wasi Street between Al Marjan Island and Al Hamra village with special parking areas. All the venues are open for free to the public.
More than 11,000 fireworks were released into the air last year and this is nowhere near enough for the Ras Al Khaimah is now up stepping a gear and plans on going well bigger and better to celebrate the year 2020.
The pyro will be handled by the team from Grucci once again who have proven to be world-beaters in the records books. The Grucci family moved to the USA in 1870 as one of the original Italian firework families and they still bring joy today, five generations later.
We wish them the best of luck and will bring you some further updates as soon as we have them.
