Be dazzled by dancing water fountains
Witness the tallest performing fountain in the world during your visit to Downtown Dubai. The Dubai Fountain offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to immerse yourself in a captivating water, music and light experience.
Submerged within the 30-acre Burj Lake, at the foot of The Dubai Mall, powerful water jets are laid out strategically over an area equal to the size of two football pitches. The fountain jets up to 22,000 gallons of water as high as 140m in the air at any one time.
Each colorful, illuminated jet sways in time to music, producing what has become the most popular show in Dubai. As the fountains fire, a range of beautiful, classical and contemporary music plays in sync with the show, which takes place every 30 minutes from 6 pm daily.
The water dances to different choreographed melodies which will leave you spellbound. Some popular tracks include Michael Jackson’s Thriller, Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman’s Time to Say Goodbye, and most recently Power by Korean pop band EXO.
The unique design features five circles of jets that shoot water to impressive heights that can be seen from over 30km away. With the introduction of thousands of WET super lights and over 20 color projectors, the spectacle is a visual masterpiece.
If standing to the side of the fountain isn’t close enough, you can experience this wonder up close with the Dubai Fountain Lake Ride. Set sail on the lake itself during the water show – they’re the best seats in the house.
The Dubai Fountain Boardwalk is the newest addition to the experience. Visitors can get even closer to the spectacle by strolling on the 272m floating platform which is just 9m away from the fountains.
