Ras Al Khaimah eyes multiple NYE world records


Ras Al Khaimah is gearing up to welcome 2023 with a dazzling musical firework display and new Guinness World Records attempts.

Featuring pyro drones, nano lights, colours and shapes choreographed to electric beats, #RAKNYE2023 will see a 12-minute performance of fireworks light up the sky in a truly spectacular New Year’s celebration, covering a 4.7km stretch along the waterfront between Al Marjan Island and Al Hamra Village.

Residents and tourists can also look forward to a calendar packed with family friendly activities and events in the run up to New Year’s Eve with a host of festivals running across the destination from November 15 to December 31.

The Organising Committee, led by Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority and comprising teams from Ras Al Khaimah Police, Ras Al Khaimah Government Media Office, Ras Al Khaimah Chamber of Commerce, Marjan, Public Works, Ras Al Khaimah Municipality, Al Hamra and others, is leading the preparations for this year’s event.

The Committee’s key focus will be the safety of the public, with all precautionary measures taken in co-ordination with the National Authority for Emergency, Crisis & Disaster Management and the Ministry of Health & Prevention.

Ras Al Khaimah already holds a number of Guinness World Records for previous editions of its awe-inspiring New Year pyrotechnic display.

Watched by thousands of viewers along the beachfront, the Emirate embraced 2022 with a breath-taking firework show, employing over 15,000 effects and 452 firework drones.

With that, the 2022 display entered the record books with titles for the ‘Most Remote Operated Multirotors/Drones Launching Fireworks Simultaneously’ and ‘Highest Altitude Multirotor/Drone Firework Display’.
