Dubai is by far one of the most diverse cities in the Middle East. It has pioneered an array of mind blowing attractions that draws to this city, planeloads of people year after year. The Dubai Fountain is a display of the city’s art work with water! Like most other attractions you find here, this fountain is out of this world; glamorous, sophisticated and extremely extravagant. It is magic with water and is absolutely mesmerizing to behold.
Spread across the 30 acre Burj Khalifa Lake, which too is man-made, the Dubai Fountain showcases an exquisitely choreographed fountain system. Some of the most intelligent minds contributed to this technology; and they were those who have already contributed to some of the finest fountain works in the entire world.
6,600 lights along with 25 coloured projectors illuminate this spectacle. The water shoots as high as 240 feet into the air making you view some of the displays high up in the sky. This watery “dance” showcases a series of classical Arabian and English music which happens to be the fountain’s favourites and it flips, shoots, splashes and turns perfectly synchronizing with the music that is being played.
The capacity of the fountain is astounding. A total of 22,000 gallons of water sprouts into the air at one given moment. The fountain is daring and at one time even had fire outline its bold and beautiful formations. The Dubai Fountain’s astounding display takes place at several fixed times during the day. Some months it focuses on specific numbers which are repetitively played during the period. The shows are visible throughout the entire lakeside vicinity and certain neighbouring buildings also have an excellent view of this attraction.
