All You Need to Know About the Dubai Fountain

The Dubai Fountain

The Dubai Fountain is a must-visit during your trip to Dubai. There are many ways to experience the synchronized waterworks, and in this article, we’ll be sharing everything you need to know ahead of your trip. Plus, when you stay at a hotel in Downtown, you’ll be within walking distance of this, the Dubai Mall, and the Burj Khalifa!


Your Guide to the Dubai Fountain

As one of the world’s tallest performing water fountains in the world, the Dubai Fountain is a sight to behold. It is set on the manmade Burj Khalifa Lake, with the towering tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, located on its banks. 

The Dubai Fountain extends across 900 ft, which equates to two stadium pitches for perspective. It features 5 circles and 2 arcs which create a unique design. The water jets and nozzles can shoot over 22,000 gallons of water in the air at impressive heights. There are also 6,600 super lights and colour projectors that form part of the shows. 

The Dubai Fountain shows take place every 30 minutes. The fountain is capable of showcasing more than 1,000 different water expressions, so this is definitely something you’ll want to watch more than once! The water fountains dance to a range of melodies, from traditional Arabic tunes to contemporary classics. 

Watch the Dubai Fountain shows every evening between 6pm and 11pm. There are also 2 daytime shows and 1pm and 1:30pm (and 1pm and 2pm on Fridays). What’s more, these shows are free to view (although you can also purchase tickets to see the show up close from AED 45). From here, visitors can hear to the Burj Park and boardwalk for a leisurely stroll in the surrounds of nature. 

Visitors can view the Dubai Fountain in many ways. Whether you’re on onlooker from the floating Dubai Fountain Boardwalk, watching as you dine at a restaurant along the Dubai Mall’s waterfront promenade, or hop on the Dubai Fountain Boat Ride along the lake, you’re sure to be mesmerised by the show.
