Expo City’s Al Wasl dome enters Guinness World Record : Here’s why

The stunning Al Wasl dome in Expo City Dubai has been recognised in the Guinness World Records as the world’s largest interactive immersive dome. The translucent 360-degree structure was the centrepiece of Expo 2020 Dubai. It remains at the heart of Expo City Dubai, the residential and commercial development that has emerged around it in the Dubai South area.

On Thursday, Al Wasl Plaza – the beating heart of the futuristic and sustainable community – set the Guinness World Record for the largest interactive immersive dome, spanning 24,038 square metres.

Being immersive means visitors will be able to interact with Al Wasl Dome through their mobile phones and smart devices using augmented reality (AR). One of the interactive experiences include focusing a smart device at any point of the 360-degree projection and a computer-generated flock of birds will follow.

The laser light projection and computer-generated content bring about multiple sensory encounters, including visual and auditory.

Amna Abulhoul, executive creative director, events and entertainment, said: “Al Wasl, which means ‘connection’ in Arabic, continues to bring people together, and we are thrilled to share details of our new experiences at the same time as our iconic interactive dome has received this prestigious recognition.
