The Dubai Fountains, Dubai

The Dubai Fountain is the world's largest fountain system set on the 30-acre manmade Burj Khalifa Lake, at the center of the Dubai development in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
It was designed by WET Design, the California-based company responsible for the fountains Illuminated by 6,600 lights and 25 colored projectors, it is (902 ft) long and shoots water up to 500 ft into the air accompanied by a range of classical to contemporary Arabic and world music. It was built at a cost of AED 800 million (USD $218 million).

The name of the fountain was chosen after a contest organized by the developer Emaar Properties, the result of which was announced on 26 October 2008 Testing of the fountain began in February 2009 and the fountain was officially inaugurated on 8 May 2009 along with the official opening ceremony of The Dubai Mall. On 2 January 2010 the length of Dubai fountains was increased to (902.2 ft).

The Dubai Fountain can spray 22,000 gallons (83,000 liters) of water in the air at any moment. 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.

Performances take place at 1:00 pm and at 1:30 pm as well as every 30 minutes from 6 pm to 10 pm on weekdays, and from 6 pm to 11 pm on weekends.
