In a blink of an eye, Dubai manages to get bigger and better. It is home to the world’s tallest building (the 830 meter Burj Khalifa) to the world’s largest shopping mall by total area (Dubai Mall) and not one to shy away from challenges or world records, Dubai will also get the world’s largest fountain. Dubai already has the phenomenal Dubai Fountain that is recognized as the world’s largest musical fountain located on the 30-acre Burj Khalifa Lake. It is 900 ft. in length and equivalent to two football fields in size. Known as Palm fountain, Palm Jumeirah’s latest waterfront attraction will be a vision in the truest sense of the term at the Pointe, a lifestyle and dining destination. It will be spread over 14,000 sq ft of seawater while its super shooter will be 105-meter tall and have over 3,000 LED lights. The fountain features a high-performance audio system consisting of 86 speakers on both sides. The attraction takes pride in being the only multicolored fountain in Dubai set to be unveiled on October 22 this year. Count it as one of the most visited places of Dubai in the near future with many three minute shows that will be performed every 30 minutes. The Palm Fountain will have 20 bespoke shows with five different shows running daily between sunset and midnight (7 p.m. to 12 a.m.). This visual extravaganza will be accompanied by some foot-tapping popular songs including Khaleeji, pop, classic, international, and more. One noteworthy detail regarding this majestic formation is that it circulates water from the sea directly without the need for a water tank or filtration equipment.
Xin Su, the chairman, Beijing Water Design Technology, said, “We are proud to be part of the design, build and operation of The Palm Fountain — an extraordinary feat. As one of China’s largest fountain specialists, this project was unique for us as we had the opportunity to tackle many firsts in ingenuity.” Dubai’s long list of attractions just got longer and we are certainly not complaining.
