The world’s tallest tower, Dubai’s 160-story Burj Khalifa, is now home to the world’s highest observation deck.

Situated on the 148th floor — a staggering 1,821 feet above ground — the viewing experience know as At the Top, Burj Khalifa SKY, beats out the previous world record holder, the 1,601-foot high observation deck at China’s Canton Tower.

This is the fourth Guinness World Record title for the Burj Khalifa. The 2,722-foot building is also the tallest building, tallest man-made structure, and is home to the highest restaurant.

The cost to take the two-elevator ride up to the SKY platform? Adult ticket prices range from $34 to $82 USD depending on the time of day. Or, for free, you can enjoy the visual preview below.
