The Palm Fountain at The Pointe Breaks Record for Largest Fountain in the World

The Pointe in Palm Jumeirah has broken the official Guinness World Record for the World’s Largest Fountain on October 22, 2020. Simply called “The Palm Fountain“, this is the much-awaited dancing water fountain by property developer Nakheel.

Property developer Nakheel announced that built a Dancing water fountain in Palm Jumeirah. The project is worth AED 66 million and is located at The Pointe, its new, AED 800 million waterfront dining and entertainment destination on the artificial island.

Dubai’s Dancing Water Fountain at the Burj Khalifa is one of the great attractions in the city so this new choreographed fountain will be another thing that residents and tourists can look forward to having in the future.

Nakheel Palm Jumeirah Builds Largest Multi-colored Dancing Fountain in the World at The Pointe

Nakheel has appointed Beijing Water Design, one of China’s largest fountain specialists, to deliver and operate the fountain. A celebration of Dubai’s creativity and ambition, The Palm Fountain is spread over 14,000 sq ft of sea water and is the only multi-coloured fountain in the city. Its super shooter stands tall at 105 metres and comes alive with over 3,000 LED lights.

The Palm Fountain 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.
