The Palm Fountain at The Pointe, Dubai’s premier lifestyle and dining destination by Nakheel, has secured the Guinness World Record for the World’s Largest Fountain after a breathtaking launch streamed live across the world.
The magical show was attended by distinguished guests, residents and tourists, who watched in awe as The Palm Fountain broke the record in tune to an exclusive song – Dubai Is Another Planet - produced to reflect the city’s vibrant and inspirational spirit.
The Palm Fountain is spread over 14,000 sq ft of sea water and is the only multi-colored fountain in the city. Its super shooter stands tall at 105 meters and comes alive with over 3,000 LED lights.
The launch, during which strict health and safety protocols were observed, included an array of live entertainment including a magical firework display. Two of the Middle East's much loved and award-winning Disney songs - Let It Go from Frozen and A Whole New World from Aladdin - were also played for the momentous occasion, and are part of the fountain’s regular programming.
The fountain is open to the public year-round from sunset to midnight, delighting visitors with over 20 bespoke shows with five different variations swaying to an array of popular songs including Khaleeji, pop, classical and international. Shows last for three minutes and are performed every 30 minutes. To commemorate its launch, The Pointe has also unveiled an Instagram-able water swing open daily from 1 pm to 10 pm until 29 October.
