The craziest tourist attractions that were never built including a spinning skyscraper and Dubai pyramids

NO ONE wants to visit a boring tourist attraction while on vacation, but some places are so out of this world that they never made it past the drawing board.

Throughout history, some wonders of the world have become myths, but many modern creations are only whispered in a design studio.

From a spinning skyscraper to pyramids in Dubai, we’ve rounded up the craziest tourist attractions that were never built.

Dynamic tower

Over 10 years ago, architect David Fisher proposed building an 80-storey skyscraper in Dubai with a twist – every single floor should rotate.

The apartments would revolve around a concrete core, offering guests 360-degree views of the city while being fully self-sufficient through wind turbines placed between each floor.

Residents could control the speed of their apartment by voice command.

It was supposed to cost £350m to build – at that price point it’s no wonder it didn’t take off.

Russian Ark

In 2011, Russian architect Alexander Remizov designed a hotel for the future called Ark.

The climate-resilient hotel should withstand all elements, including earthquakes, floods, rising sea levels and other environmental challenges.

The ship was intended to accommodate guests on land and at sea, and also be self-sufficient – by generating energy from the sun and tides.

It was supposed to have a greenhouse and an aviary on board, but the project never made it.

PYRAMIDS IN DUBAI

Launched in 2005, the highly anticipated Falconcity of Wonders is set to house a variety of buildings, including world-famous landmarks with a twist.

Viewed from above, the complex would take the shape of a falcon, with guests able to visit the Dueiffel Tower Dubai (inspired by the Eiffel Tower), the Leaning Tower of Dubai, the Great Wall of Dubai, and the Great Pyramid of Dubai.

Plans have been around for years with nothing yet to be confirmed.

In the meantime, you can soon visit the Ziggurat Pyramid in Dubai, the construction of which started last year.

Mars connection

Dubai also announced plans to build a Mars link.

The futuristic city was conceived as a training center for astronauts en route to Mars as well as an on-site museum for visitors.

The plans are out of this world.
