Dubai developments like to set records, and the recently announced Meydan One project has a whole list of records it's after, including the world's longest indoor ski slope. At a nearly three-quarters of a mile, the planned slope would almost double the current record holder, the AlpinCenter in Germany. The base area for this slope would be an 8,000-seat venue for sporting events and shows, the Meydan Arena. The rest of the development will include the world's tallest residential tower, the largest dancing fountain, the highest 360-degree observation deck, a beach, a marina and a huge indoor sports complex. More details on the slope itself are scant at this point, but that's somewhat understandable as first phase of the project is slated for completion by 2020.
