Dubai Fountain From At The Top Of Burj Khalifa

Dubai Fountain

The Dubai Fountain is the world’s largest choreographed fountain system set on the 30-acre manmade Burj Khalifa Lake. It was designed by WET Design and it is the California-based company responsible for the fountains at the Bellagio Hotel Lake in Las Vegas.

The Dubai Fountain can spray 83,000 liters of water in the air at any moment. More than 6,600 lights and 25 colour projectors have been installed. During the end of 2010 the fountain had got a new element, fire, which outlined the fountains.

The Dubai Fountains project water in the air in many different combinations and patterns. The beam of light from the fountain can be seen from over 20 miles away.

The Dubai Fountain consists of many high-pressure water jets and shooters: oarsmen or water robots, which can make the water seem to dance, shooters which shoot water upwards; super shooters, which shoot water under more pressure up to 240 feet in the air and extreme shooters, which can shoot water under the most pressure to 500 ft in the air. These shooters create a loud “boom” noise after water is ejected.
