Fireworks by Al Marjan Island attempt Guinness World Record
New Year’s Eve 2018 will be marked by an extra special display of dazzling pyrotechnics in Ras Al Khaimah. Abdullah Al Abdooli, Managing Director of Al Marjan Island, said: “This year, we are creating a dynamic new experience that will add to the pride of Ras Al Khaimah and our nation through a spectacular firework display. As an official Guinness World Records title attempt, we are working with the concerned government authorities to organize the event seamlessly and to the highest standards of safety. We aim to provide our guests a memorable and never-before night. With 120 sites for the fireworks, the display will be like nothing previously witnessed.”
The gala has been devised by world leaders Fireworks by Grucci, the same company behind the record-breaking fireworks spectacle in Dubai in 2014. The fireworks to be used for the Al Marjan Island display have been created using environmentally friendly, organic material such as wood, sulphur and seawater.
