Video: Dubai set to launch world's largest fountain


Dubai is set to break another world record. And, this time it's for the world's largest fountain.

That's right! The 'Palm Fountain', at the Pointe, will attempt to set a Guinness World Record when it launches on Thursday (October 22). And, everyone's invited to witness this historic moment.

Spread over 14,000 square feet of seawater, the fountain’s super shooter will stand tall at 105 metres and come alive with over 3,000 LED lights. 

It will have 20 bespoke shows with five different shows running daily between 7:00 pm to midnight, while swaying to an array of popular songs including Khaleeji, pop, classic, international and more.

Each show will last for three minutes and will be performed every 30 minutes.

A spectacular array of events have been lined up for the launch day, with the fountain to go live at 8:00 pm. 

"The Palm Fountain is yet another incredible addition to Dubai’s list of world-famous landmarks and is sure to be a big draw among residents and visitors alike," said Ahmed Al Khaja, CEO of Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE).

"Its launch further cements the city’s status as a must-visit destination where guests from around the world can experience the best sights and sounds as well as unrivalled retail and tourist spaces."

Meanwhile, Omar Khoory, Managing Director, Nakheel Malls, described it as a "celebration of Dubai’s resilience".
